Longtime Philadelphia Flyers forward, Simon Gagne, has been traded to the Tampa Bay Lightning for defenseman Matt Walker, and a fourth round pick in the 2011 NHL draft.
Gagne has been playing with the Flyers since he was drafted in 1998. ESPN reports that Gagne still has 1 year on his contract, which will net him $5.25 million.
Gagne has played 664 NHL games with the Flyers, and has scored 259 goals and made 265 assists.
“In adding Simon to the Lightning today, we acquire a very talented player that will play along side our top forwards,” Lightning vice president and general manager Steve Yzerman said. “With his combination of speed and skill we are excited to have him with us and grateful he was willing to waive his no-movement clause.”
