Flyers Inside Out
FLYERS INVITE CLEARY TO TRAINING CAMP

It appears the Flyers are planning on a very competitive training camp.

Last week it was veteran defenseman Hal Gill accepting a professional try out contract with the Flyers, this week it's veteran left wing Daniel Cleary.

Cleary signed a PTO with the Flyers Tuesday and will be in camp with the team Thursday. This likely means the Flyers will not bring Simon Gagne to camp on a tryout.

If the Flyers want to sign Cleary - or Gill for that matter - they'll have to clear some cap space first, which could be on Sept. 30, when Chris Pronger is oficially moved to the long-term injury list and his money comes off the salary cap.

Daniel Cleary coming to camp with the Flyers on a try out contract will create plenty of competition at the left wing position.

A veteran of 16 seasons in the NHL, Cleary, 35, is a gritty two-way forward who has a consistent level of productivity.

In his past seven seasons, all with the Detroit Red Wings, Cleary has averaged .54 points per game, or roughly 44 points in an 82-game season.

Most important to note about Cleary though is his locker room personality and leadership skills. He was one of the most liked and respected players in Detroit by teammates and coaches alike.

Cleary was originally drafted by the Chicago Blackhawks in the first round (No. 13 overall) in the 1997 NHL Entry draft.

He spent parts of two seasons with the Blackhawks, parts of four seasons with the Edmonton Oilers, two seasons with the Phoenix Coyotes and the past eight with the Red Wings.

Cleary has played in 869 career games in the NHL and has 160 goals and 217 assists for 377 points.

He also played in 121 career playoff games with 24 goals, 28 assists and 52 points.

A native of Corbonear, Newfoundland, Cleary won the Stanley Cup with the Red Wings in 2007-08 and was the second-leading scorer for the Wings in last season's playoffs and their top scorer in the seven-game tilt with the eventual Cup champion Blackhawks.
