The Philadelphia Flyers announced today that they have acquired 6-1, 207-lb right wing Matt Ford from the Washington Capitals in exchange for defenseman Kevin Marshall, according to general manager Paul Holmgren.  Ford has been assigned to the Flyers’ American Hockey League affiliate, the Adirondack Phantoms.
 
Ford, 27 (10/9/1984), has appeared in 39 games this season for Washington’s AHL affiliate, the Hershey Bears, where he posted 10 goals and 18 assists for 28 points.  He appeared in 76 games with the AHL’s Lake Erie Monsters last season, where he scored a career-high 26 goals and added 16 assists for a career-high 42 points. 

Ford has recorded 50 goals and 50 assists for 100 points in 190 career AHL games with Hershey, Lake Erie and the Hartford Wolf Pack.  He was also the MVP of the 2009 ECHL All-Star Game while a member of the Charlotte Checkers.
 
Prior to turning pro, Ford played four years at the University of Wisconsin, where he was a member of the school’s 2006 national championship team.  He was drafted by the Chicago Blackhawks in the eighth round (256th overall) of the 2004 NHL Entry Draft.
 
Marshall, 22 (3/10/89), appeared in 10 games for the Flyers this season, including his NHL debut on November 21 vs. Carolina.  He recorded two goals and three assists for five points in 32 games for Adirondack this season.
