The Philadelphia Flyers announced that they have acquired 6’2”, 220-pound defenseman Jaroslav Modry (YAHR-roh-slav MOH-dree) from the Los Angeles Kings in exchange for a third round pick in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft, according to club General Manager Paul Holmgren.

"Jaroslav (Modry) is a steady two-way defenseman that will bring us leadership and experience down the stretch," said Holmgren in announcing the trade.

"I am definitely excited," said Modry. "I am going to a solid organization with the chance to win the ultimate goal. My season, all of a sudden, has turned around.  It is a great challenge for me, and like I said I am very excited.

"I bring experience, intensity and I am able to move the puck well out of our zone and make our forwards create chances.  I am a solid defenseman and am able to play against the best players from the other team, and keep them from scoring goals against us. I think I can help the team get better. I can step up and play special teams, too, and be able to chip in and do the right stuff out there."

Modry, 36, recorded a goal and five assists for six points and 42 penalty minutes in 61 games for the Kings this season. He is tied for second on the team in plus/minus at +2.

In 706 career NHL games over 13 seasons with the New Jersey Devils (1993-94 and 1994-95), the Ottawa Senators (1995-96), Los Angeles (1995-96 through 2003-04, 2006-07 to 2007-08), Atlanta Thrashers (2005-06) and Dallas Stars (2006-07), Modry has registered 49 goals and 198 assists for 247 points and 502 penalty minutes. He played parts of 10 seasons with the Kings, recording 35 goals and 129 assists for 164 points and 338 penalty minutes in 454 regular season games. He is ninth on the Kings All-Time List among defensemen in assists (129) and points (164). He set single-season career highs for assists and points when he registered 38 assists and 42 points for the Kings during the 2001-02 season and participated in the 2002 NHL All-Star Game. He was originally drafted by New Jersey in the ninth round of the 1990 NHL Entry Draft.
