Philadelphia Flyers striker Jacob Vorasek may wear a new uniform early next season as he plays for Eastern Pennsylvania.
At least that’s the scenario that Sportsnet journalist Elliot Friedman has raised. The latter wrote that the relationship between the 31-year-old and the organization in question is not cruel. However, the two parties reportedly discussed the possibility of ending their association.
Also, the opportunities to move forward in this direction may be numerous. Flyers will have the option to protect Voracek in the expansion draft or not; However, Seattle Kraken coach Dave Haxtool previously coached the Czech national team in Philadelphia from 2015 to 2018.
If a hockey player doesn’t take the road to Seattle, his team can trade him. He has a three-year contract still in place and his payroll impact is $8.25 million. His base salary in 2021-2022 will be $7.5 million.
Vorasik scored nine goals and made 34 assists for 43 points in 55 games last season while maintaining a rating of -12. His team failed to qualify for the playoffs after reaching the second round last summer. In his career, he claims to have had at least 20 nets for six years. Seventh in the 2007 draft, the previous Columbus Blue Jackets totaled 968 regular season games and totaled 738 points, including 216 goals.
