Jon Sim to Florida for a 2007 6th Round Pick

The Philadelphia Flyers announced that they have traded forward Jon Sim to the Florida Panthers in exchange for a sixth round pick in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft, according to General Manager Bob Clarke.

“Jon was one of 14 forwards that we have now and was the guy who probably was not going to play very much,” said Clarke in making the announcement. “It did not make any sense for us to carry his contract on our payroll. We like Jon. He worked really hard for the (Philadelphia) Phantoms last year and worked really hard to earn a spot with us. We would have liked to keep him, but with the salary cap we could not financially do that.”
