This Date In Flyers History...May 30

May 30, 1991...Flyers Acquire Jari Kurri

Although he was officially a Flyer, Jari Kurri never played a game for the team.
On this date in 1991, the Flyers made two trades, involving nine players and one draft choice.

First, the Flyers traded Scott Mellanby, Craig Berube and Craig Fisher to the Edmonton Oilers in exchange for right wing Dave Brown, defenseman Corey Foster and the rights to right wing Jari Kurri. The Flyers then traded Jeff Chychrun and the rights to Kurri to the Los Angeles Kings in exchange for defenseman Steve Duchesne, center Steve Kasper and a fourth round pick in the 1991 NHL Entry Draft.

Duchesne would win the Barry Ashbee Trophy as the most outstanding Flyers defenseman in his only season with the team (1991-92). He would later be included in the trade with the Quebec Nordiques that brought Eric Lindros to the Flyers.

In his second tour of duty with the Flyers, Brown would play four more seasons with the team before signing as a free agent with the San Jose Sharks prior to the 1995-96 season. He would leave the Flyers in sixth place on the team's All-Time List in penalty minutes.

Foster would play just 25 games with the Flyers (during the 1991-92). He would spend the majority of his three seasons with the organization with the Flyers' American Hockey League affiliate, the Hershey Bears.

Kasper would play just parts of two seasons with the Flyers (1991-92 and 1992-93), before being traded to the Tampa Bay Lightning on December 8, 1992. His 1991-92 season was limited to just 16 games due to a knee injury.

The Flyers used the fourth round pick that they acquired in the 1991 NHL Entry Draft to draft defenseman Aris Brimanis, who played 21 games for the Flyers over three seasons (1993-94, 1995-96 and 1996-97).

Kurri would play for seven more seasons after the trade, with Los Angeles, New York Rangers, Mighty Ducks of Anaheim and Colorado Avalanche, and would retire after the 1997-98 season. He would be inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2001.
