Flyers Sign Center Randy Robitaille
The Philadelphia Flyers announced that they have agreed to terms on a contract with 5'11", 195-pound center Randy Robitaille (ROH-buh-tigh), according to club General Manager Bob Clarke. Robitaille, a Group 3 free agent, signed a one-year contract. Per club policy, financial terms were not disclosed.

"Robitaille was one of Minnesota's leading scorers last year (tied for fourth on team)," said Clarke in making the announcement. "He was their top faceoff man and can play center or wing. He had 40 points, is a really good skater and can play both ends of the rink. We believe that he'll add to our offense next season."

"It is definitely exciting news to be part of an organization such as the Philadelphia Flyers," said Robitaille. "Obviously, they are a first-class organization who looks to achieve great things each year and winning the Stanley Cup is their first priority.

"Especially with the way the new NHL is going, speed and skill are at a premium. I am 5'11" and 195 pounds, so I like to try to use my speed and playmaking abilities to generate offense for the hockey club. The Flyers have some pretty big-name guys and I just want to contribute any way that I can."

Robitaille, 30, recorded 12 goals and 28 assists for 40 points and 54 penalty minutes in 67 games for the Minnesota Wild this past season. His 28 assists, 40 points and seven power play goals were all new career highs for a single season. He was claimed from the Nashville Predators by the Wild on October 4, 2005. Robitaille was signed as a free agent by Nashville on August 19, 2005, after leading the Swiss National League in assists (45) and points (67) as a member of the ZSC Lions Zurich for the 2004-05 season.

In parts of nine NHL seasons with the Boston Bruins, Nashville, Los Angeles Kings, Pittsburgh Penguins, NY Islanders, Atlanta Thrashers and Minnesota (1996-97 through 2005-06), Robitaille has registered 63 goals and 124 assists for 187 points and 125 penalty minutes in 385 regular season games. The Ottawa, Ontario native was originally signed as a free agent from Miami (Ohio) University by Boston on March 27, 1997.
