Hal Gill signed to a one-year contract worth $700,000 (Oct. 1)

Now with a link....|PHI|home

With five days remaining until Training Camp, and Day 2 into the club's Rookie Camp, the Flyers announced that they have signed veteran defenseman Hal Gill to a Pro Try-Out and he will attend the team's training camp, set to begin on Sept. 12 at the Wells Fargo Center.

Gill appeared in 32 games with the Nashville Predators last season, where he went scoreless and averaged over 13 minutes of ice-time per game.


One area the Philadelphia Flyers could use help is on defense and theyre looking to address that in training camp.

Fluto Shinzawa of the Boston Globe reports the Flyers have invited veteran blue liner Hal Gill to camp on a tryout. The 38-year-old, 67″ defenseman spent the past season and a half with the Nashville Predators. Previous to that hes played for Montreal, Pittsburgh, Toronto, and Boston.

In his run with the Preds last season, Gill averaged just over 13 minutes per game as a third-pair defenseman. In 32 games he had no points, 12 penalty minutes, and was a minus-3.

Gill played 32 games for the Nashville Predators last season and is currently an unrestricted free agent after the Predators bought out his contract in July. The 6-foot-7 blueliner won a Stanley Cup in 2009 with the Pittsburgh Penguins. Hes also played for Boston, Toronto and Montreal.

Im excited for the chance to prepare and play with a great organization, Gill told Josh Rimer. Im thankful to the Flyers for giving me this opportunity.
