Desperately needing a makeover after a dull season, Flyers general manager Chuck Fletcher has made his third blockbuster trade in the last week Saturday.

They acquired right winger Cam Atkinson from Columbus and sent right winger Jake Voracek to the Blue Jackets.

The Flyers acquired Voracek from Columbus in 2011, and he had 10 strong seasons in Philadelphia.

Since last Saturday, Fletcher has acquired Ryan Ellis, Rasmus Ristolainen, and Atkinson, while parting ways with Voracek, Philippe Myers, Nolan Patrick, Shayne Gostisbehere, Robert Hagg and four draft picks.

Atkinson, 32, had 15 goals and 34 points last season. He had 41 goals in the NHL’s last full season, back in 2018-19. He has four years remaining on his contract, which has an annual $5.875 cap hit.

Besides his goal scoring, he should help the Flyers’ penalty kill and power play.

Voracek, who turns 32 next month, shared the team lead with 43 points (9 goals, 34 assists) last season. He has a cap hit of $8.25 million for the next three years.

Since last Saturday, Fletcher has acquired Ryan Ellis, Rasmus Ristolainen, and Atkinson, while parting ways with Voracek, Philippe Myers, Nolan Patrick, Shayne Gostisbehere, Robert Hagg and four draft picks.

“This is a significant trade for our club and we are very excited to welcome Jake Voracek back to the Blue Jackets family.  He is a powerful, dynamic offensive player that will be a significant contributor to our club,” Blue Jackets GM Jarmo Kekalainen said.  “Adding a player like that comes at a cost and I want to thank Cam Atkinson for his many contributions to the Blue Jackets and Columbus community over the past 10 years.  He has made a lasting impact on our club.”

Voracek and a first-round pick — it turned out to be Sean Couturier — was acquired by the Flyers in a trade that sent Jeff Carter to Columbus on June 23, 2011. He ranks fifth on the Flyers’ all-time list in assists and 10th (177-427-604) in 727 career games. 

The Czech Republic native set single-season career highs in assists and points with 20-65-85 in 82 appearances in 2017-18.  He was also named to the NHL’s First All-Star Team in 2014-15 after notching 22-59-81 in 82 games. 

Free agency starts on Wednesday.
