Instant analysis: Flyers sign three more unrestricted free agents


Just minutes after announcing a trio of free agent signings, the Flyers bounce right back with three more just for good measure. Here’s all you need to know.

Andy Welinski

The 26-year old agreed to a one-year deal worth $750K. At 6’1, 201 lbs, the defenseman spent time with the Ducks and their AHL affiliate over the last two years. He averaged 16 minutes of ice time with the Ducks in 26 games. In 33 career games, he’s netted a goal and 5 assists, while scoring 24 goal and 59 assists in 146 AHL games. The former third-round pick should bring some very intriguing two-way depth to the Phantoms as a player who can sneak onto the Flyers roster in a pinch and make an offensive impact.

Tyler Wotherspoon

The 26-year old signed a two-year, two-way deal worth $700K and does so on the back of a year where he netted 4 goals, and tacked up 18 assists for 22 points in 70 games for the San Antonio Rampage in the AHL. The former second-round pick has 30 NHL appearances under his belt too.

 J-F Berube

Another one-year, two-way deal worth $700k, Berube will being valuable goalie depth to the Phantoms. After averaging a 3.01 GAA and a .896 GAA in 43 games in the AHL last year, the 27-year old is a developmental talent in every sense of the word. A cadler Cup winner in 2015 with a 13-3 playoff record, the goalie was drafted in the fourth round back in 2009.
