Free-agent forward Bill Guerin, who played last season for the Pittsburgh Penguins, was on the ice today in an informal workout with the Flyers at the Flyers Skate Zone in Voorhees, N.J.

"I was down in the area visiting my father-in-law who lives in Medford [N.J.]," Guerin said. "I was going to be in the area anyway and I wanted to get on the ice. My agent talked to Paul [Holmgren] about possibly having me come here and skate around with the guys. It was nice. It was good to finally get back on the ice and skate.”

 

Guerin was asked if any future deal could happen with the Flyers. "I really don’t know," he said. "Right now, honestly, it is just about getting back on the ice. I’m just getting myself in shape, skating shape, to be ready just in case anything happens somewhere. I am definitely looking to play this year.”
