The Philadelphia Flyers have officially come to terms with veteran defenseman Hal Gill, inking him to a one-year, $700,000 deal, according to TSN’s Bob McKenzie.
Gill, 38, played 32 games last season for the Predators and came to Flyers camp on a tryout. A defensive specialist, his addition will help a team that struggled in its own end last season.
“As a team we need to make sure everyone is on the same page, that there is a commitment to defense,” Gill said, per CSN Philly. “That is what we worked a lot on [Sunday] and you saw that in practice.
“Making clean plays, being responsible defensively. When you do that, your offense and creating offense comes off that.”
