The Flyers made a minor move on Monday, acquiring bruising LW Jay Rosehill from the Anaheim Ducks for speedy winger Harry Zolnierczyk.

The 6-3, 215-pound Rosehill has spent the season with the Ducks' AHL affiliate, the Norfolk Admirals, registering eight points and 90 penalty minutes in 33 games.

Prior to this season, the 27-year-old played for the Toronto Maple Leafs franchise, appearing in 31 games in the NHL for Toronto, going scoreless with 60 penalty minutes.

He sounds like a version of Tom Sestito.

In two years with the Flyers, Zolnierczyk appeared in a total of 44 regular season games and had seven points.

Meanwhile, Claude Giroux (@28CGiroux) tweeted this to Scott Hartnell (@Hartsy19): good luck in St Louis. You’re a great teammate and friend. Just make sure you keep your head up next year.

Apparently, it was an April Fool's Day joke.
