Flyers sign Lilja

In yet another move on the first day of free agency, the Flyers signed UFA defender, Andreas Lilja.

Lilja spend last season in Anaheim after playing the previous 5 in Detroit. He is a 6’3″, 220lb, left-handed defender. He was likely signed to replace Sean O’Donnell who just signed in Chicago for $850K.

Lilja, 35, will provide another veteran presence on the blue line. He had a cap hit of $600k last season and played 52 games for the Ducks.

TSN reports that Lilja signed a one-year deal. Anthony SanFilippo says the deal worth about $750k.
