Veteran winger Billy Guerin will attend the Philadelphia Flyers training camp on a tryout basis. Guerin, 39, scored 21 goals last season for the Pittsburgh Penguins.
The Flyers have been at the top of Guerin’s wishlist along with the Boston Bruins. The Bruins though failed to clear any cap space and Guerin’s focus has been with the Flyers of late.
Guerin has been working out at the Flyers facility for almost two weeks now as his agent Bob Murray initiated talks with Flyers GM Paul Holmgren in late August. Guerin’s camp is optimistic that Guerin will earn a contract out of camp.
The Flyers though first want to look at a few up and coming players in their system before giving Guerin a contract.
Elsewhere in the Atlantic Division, the National Hockey League came down hard on the New Jersey Devils today regarding the Ilya Kovalchuk situation.
The league announced that the Devils have been fined $3 million, and will lose a first round pick in one of the next four years and a 3rd rounder in 2011.
