The Philadelphia Flyers have agreed to terms with 6-4, 232-lb forward Zack Stortini to a one-year, two-way contract, according to general manager Ron Hextall.
Stortini, 28 (9/11/1985), spent the 2013-14 season in the Anaheim Ducks organization playing for the team’s American Hockey League affiliate, the Norfolk Admirals, where he posted nine points (4g-5a) to go along with a league-leading 299 penalty minutes.
He has spent parts of the last four seasons in the AHL with Oklahoma City (2010-11), Milwaukee (2011-12), Hamilton (2012-13) and Norfolk (2013-14), while also appearing in regular season games for the Nashville Predators (2011-12) and Edmonton Oilers (2006-2011).
Stortini has accumulated 14 goals and 27 assists for 41 points and 725 penalty minutes in 257 NHL games in his career with the Oilers and Predators.
He was a member of the Calder Cup Champion Hamilton Bulldogs in 2007 where he posted 15 points (9g-6a) in 47 regular season games and three goals in 22 Calder Cup Playoff games on the way to the title.
He was originally drafted by Edmonton in the third round (94th overall) of the 2003 NHL Entry Draft.
