NHL Trade Rumors 2012: Philadelphia Flyers Interested In Defenseman Keith Yandle?

The Philadelphia Flyers could be interested in snagging Phoenix Coyotes defenseman Keith Yandle at the 2012 NHL Draft in a trade, according to a report (via CSN Philly).

The Coyotes' general manager is reportedly collecting offer pitches for Yandle. The Detroit Red Wings, among other teams, are also interested in the veteran offensive defenseman. In 365 career games, Yandle has scored 44 goals and added 144 helpers while only logging 223 penalty minutes for the Coyotes. Yandle had one goal and nine points in Phoenix's 16-game postseason run last season.

The Flyers are also reportedly still in talks to get winger Bobby Ryan from the Ducks if they are willing to give up either Brayden Schenn or Sean Couturier, along with James van Riemsdyk.
