Free-agent and fan favorite Dan Carcillo has signed a one year deal with the Chicago Blackhawks, and goalie Brian Boucher has ended his second stint with the Flyers by signing a 2 year deal with the Carolina Hurricanes for $1.9 million total.
Although Carcillo hardly put up great numbers, his trade mark mustache and grittiness made him a quick fan favorite in Philly, a town known for its blue collar attitude. Carcillo had his best season with the Flyers in 2008-09 with 12 goals and 10 assists, last year he only had 6 points and was a minus 14 in 57 games, being a healthy scratch several times.
Boucher went 18-10-4 last season with the Flyers with a 2.42 GAA and a .916 save percentage. Boucher was also somewhat of a fan favorite with the oft heard "Bouuuche" chant when he was playing well. However he couldn't step up and take the number one spot last year despite several chances.
The Flyers have also signed free agent defensman Andreas Lilja and agreed to a contract extension with Jakub Voracek who they acquired in the Jeff Carter trade with Columbus. Terms not yet dislosed for either deal.
