NHL Trade Rumors 2012: Flyers' Sergei Bobrovsky To Columbus Blue Jackets Close But 'Not Done Yet,' According To Reports

The Philadelphia Flyers are close to completing a deal that will send Sergei Bobrovsky to the Columbus Blue Jackets for draft picks, according to a report from TSN's Darren Dreger.

The deal is not yet complete, though.

Bobrovsky, 23, played 29 games last season as Philadelphia's backup goaltender, finishing the season 14-10-2 with an .899 save percentage and a 3.02 goals against average. He played in one playoff game, surrendering five Pittsburgh Penguins goals on 18 shots.

The Flyers have Ilya Bryzgalov under contract for eight more seasons, and could be looking for a more experienced backup.
