With the 2012 NHL Draft taking place today in Pittsburgh, Flyers GM Paul Holmgren is sure to have some moves up his place.
It will be a year ago tomorrow, June 23rd that Holmgren traded away Mike Richards and Jeff Carter on the same day.
NHL Insider Darren Dreger reported that the Flyers are closing in on a deal that will send backup goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky to the Columbus Blue Jackets in exchange for draft picks.
