The Philadelphia Flyers have acquired winger R.J. Umberger and a fourth-round pick in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft from the Columbus Blue Jackets in exchange for LW Scott Hartnell, according to general manager Ron Hextall.

“RJ is a versatile guy who can play all positions. He’s a good penalty killer who skates well. He’s a veteran who has been around a long time and knows how to play the game properly. He’ll be used in a lot of different areas. I think with our team it is nice to have a real versatile guy like him.”
- Craig Berube
