Filppula rejected trade to Maple Leafs

If the Flyers were out to make themselves a little younger, they achieved that.

The Philadelphia Flyers have acquired forward Valtteri Filppula, Tampa Bay's 4th round selection in the 2017 NHL Entry Draft and a conditional 7th round selection in the 2017 NHL Entry Draft in exchange for Mark Streit. He has 34 points (seven goals, 27 assists) in 59 games this season and 442 points (152 goals, 270 assists) in 775 National Hockey League games with the Lightning and Detroit Red Wings.

The Flyers announced that they will receive Tampa's fourth-round pick in the 2017 National Hockey League draft and a conditional 2017 seventh-round pick as part of the deal.

Filppula, who will turn 33 on March 20, has one year left on a contract that has a $5 million cap hit.

In 49 games this season Streit has 21 points (five goals, 16 assists).




Mark Streit a member of the Tampa Bay Lightning for mere minutes.

What no one expected, however, was that they would trade him to Tampa Bay for a player who is coming back with a salary almost identical to the one they are losing and has another year left on his contract. He has 79 points (24 goals, 55 assists) in 152 posteason games.

He was drafted by Detroit with the 95th overall pick in 2002.

Hextall and Tampa general manager Steve Yzerman also worked out a big trade two years ago when Braydon Coburn was sent to the Lightning in exchange for Radko Gudas and a first-round pick.

At times, Filppula, a 6-foot, 196-pound Finn, centered Jonathan Drouin and Ryan Callahan this season.
