Flyers did not give him up. He was in flyers camp as an undrafted player after being passed over the previous year. Fkyers tried to sign him ala martin jones for kings , however they did not realize that that rule only applies for junior players not players who played the previous year in europe. So he went into draft where kings selected him.
I was aware of that rule as it was commented on that year by the Flyers media and that's not what I meant by 'giving him up'. I should have stated that better. Holmgren admitted after the 2012 draft that he'd had Hyka on his radar and wanted to draft him but 'forgot' about him. That's what I mean by the Flyers letting him go, they could have drafted him that year and they didn't, the Kings did.
