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.

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