Flyers Add A Pair of Free Agents
Sources told ESPN.com’s Pierre LeBrun that Gervais signed a two-year deal worth an average of $825,000 while Fedotenko signed for one year and $1.75 million.
“Ruslan is a good two-way forward that can play either wing,” said Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren, who added that he’s tried to land Fedotenko a couple times in the last few years. “(He) will bring experience and depth to our forward group.”
Gervais had six goals and 13 points in 50 games for Tampa Bay last season, and spent his first six seasons with the New York Islanders.
“The main thing for me is, I want to win,” Gervais said. “(Philadelphia is) such a great sports town. I love the town, and I love where the organization is headed. I just want to help any way I can.”
