Flyers Claim Forward Off Waivers

The Philadelphia Flyers have claimed Lukas Sedlak off waivers from the Colorado Avalanche. 

Sedlak's tenure with the Avalanche is officially over after just three games, where he had zero points and a plus-1 rating. The 29-year-old is now set to provide the Flyers with another bottom-six option. Overall, it makes sense for the Flyers to take a chance on the Czech forward, as they currently are off to a shocking 3-0-0 start. Thus, why not add another forward to the mix? 

Sedlak also has experience playing for John Tortorella, as Torts was his head coach during his time with the Columbus Blue Jackets. Therefore, their past relationship likely played a role in this waiver claim. Let's see how Sedlak performs from here.
