Philadelphia gets fifth round pick in 2004

The Philadelphia Flyers today announced that they have traded forward Eric Chouinard (shwee-NAHR) to the Minnesota Wild in exchange for a fifth round pick in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft, according to General Manager Bob Clarke.

“With the acquisition of (Mike) Comrie, there just wasn’t going to be any ice time or any place to play Eric,“ said Clarke in making the announcement. “We felt that for our team and for Eric that it’s better he goes somewhere else where he gets a chance to play.”

Chouinard, 23, scored three goals in 17 games for the Flyers this season. He was also scoreless in one game for the Flyers’ American Hockey League affiliate, the Philadelphia Phantoms, this season. In 45 regular season games with the Flyers, Chouinard recorded seven goals and four assists for 11 points and eight penalty minutes. He was acquired by the Flyers from the Montreal Canadiens in exchange for a second round pick in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft on January 29, 2003. In 58 career NHL games over parts of three seasons with Montreal and the Flyers (2000-01, 2002-03 and 2003-04), the 6’3”, 215-pound forward has registered eight goals and seven assists for 15 points and eight penalty minutes. He was originally drafted by the Canadiens in the first round (16th overall) of the 1998 NHL Entry Draft.
