The Flyers have claimed forward Adam Hall off waivers from the Tampa Bay Lightning, according to ESPN's Pierre LeBrun.

Hall was traded yesterday from the Carolina Hurricanes to Tampa, but needed to clear waivers before the deal could be completed. The Flyers, however, snapped up the 32-year-old forward.

Hall has scored 65 goals and notched 82 assists in 591 career games. The Flyers will be Hall's sixth NHL team. After being drafted 52nd overall by the Predators in 1999, Hall spent time with the Rangers, Wild, Penguins, Lightning, and Hurricanes.
