Flyers bring back Hall
The Flyers have re-signed one of their own unrestricted free agents less than 24 hours before the start of free agency.
Adam Hall, who the Flyers claimed off waivers last April, signed a one-year deal Thursday to stay with the team. Hall will make $600,000. The contract is a one-way (NHL only) deal.
Hall, 32, played 11 games for the Flyers. He didn’t register a point, but he proved to be a solid role player. He was especially strong in the faceoff circle winning 59 percent (46-for-78) of his draws while with the Flyers.
Hall was also a regular on the penalty kill, getting the third-most minutes of any Flyers forward after his arrival, replacing the injured Max Talbot in the lineup.
Hall, a native of Kalamazoo, Michigan, was originally a second round pick (N0. 52 overall) of the Nashville Predators in the 1999 NHL Entry Draft.
In 602 career games (with Nashville, the New York Rangers, Minnesota, Pittsburgh, Tampa Bay, Carolina and the Flyers) in parts of 10 seasons Hall has 65 goals and 82 assists for 147 points and 259 penalty minutes.
