Tony DeAngelo, the contentious former Rangers defenseman, is once again looking for a new team. Hurricanes acquired DeAngelo to a one-year contract in July after the Rangers bought out his remaining contract following a series of errors off the ice.
On Friday, they sold the offensive-minded defenseman and a 2022 seventh-round draught pick to the Flyers. The Flyers gave Carolina a fourth-round pick in 2022, which they used to choose defenseman Simon Forsmark at No. 101, as well as a third-round pick in 2023 and a fourth-round pick in 2024.
Philadelphia signed DeAngelo, a restricted free agent, to a two-year, $10 million contract after he was notified of his rights. The 26-year-old defenseman from New Jersey’s Washington Township is returning home to play for ex-Rangers coach John Tortorella in Philadelphia.
TRADE: We have acquired Tony DeAngelo and a 7th round pick (220th overall) in this year's draft from Carolina in exchange for our 4th round pick (101st overall) in 2022, 3rd round pick in 2023 (the lowest of the three picks) and a 2nd round pick in 2024. https://t.co/gCrZfPCx7L

Flyers general manager Chuck Fletcher said in a press release, “We are very pleased to have Tony to our club and I know he is very delighted to join the Flyers.” “We’ve done our homework, and we’re confident in Tony’s abilities to support our team. ‘” a right-handed shot with excellent puck-handling skills, he’ll be a key part of our offensive engine”
DeAngelo is now playing on his fourth NHL team after racking up 10 goals and 41 assists in 64 games with the Carolina Hurricanes last season. While DeAngelo played for the Rangers for 167 games, scoring 19 goals and dishing out 73 assists in the process, his off-the-ice behavior led to his release from his contract on unconditional waivers on July 28, 2021, for the purpose of a buyout.
