B's Newsflash: Alberts Traded to Flyers

Andrew Alberts was traded to the Philadelphia Flyers for 22 year old Serbian winger, Ned Lukacevic and a conditional 4th rd pick (pick becomes a 3rd rounder if Alberts resigns with Philly,he is a UFA after this season).

The move is basically a salary dump for Boston, as they get to clear the defenseman's $1.25M in salary off their cap. Presumably, Mat Hunwick will be called up to replace Alberts as the "extra" D-man. Alberts should see some ice time in Philly as the Flyers are down two blue liners because of injury to Randy Jones (yes, THAT Randy Jones) and Ryan Parent.
