Flyers GM Paul Holmgren is looking to acquire forward Scottie Upshall, several sources close to the team have reported.
After playing with the Flyers from 2006-08, Upshall was traded to the Phoenix Coyotes after the 2008 season for a second round draft pick and winger Dan Carcillo.
With the Flyers set at center, it appears that Holmgren wants to add depth to wing. It was reported that Holmgren also pursued longtime New Jersey Devil Jamie Langenbruner before he was traded to Dallas.
Ironically, the addition of Upshall might be least beneficial to the man he was traded for. Carcillo or forward Andreas Nodl would likely be moved if the Holmgren can sign the former Flyer.
