Updates: Flyers Ink Sean O’Donnell to One-Year Deal

Per TSN’s Bob McKenzie, the Philadelphia Flyers have agreed to a one-year deal with former Los Angeles Kings defenseman Sean O’Donnell.

O'Donnell immediately makes the Flyers defense meaner

O’Donnell, at 38 years old, has seen his fair share of wear and tear during his 17 year NHL career, brings both experience and leadership to the Flyers in the signing.  Last season, for the LA Kings, O’Donnell posted totals of 3 Goals, 12 Assists, and 15 Points in 78 Games Played.  He also notched 70 penalty minutes.

O’Donnell likely will round out the Flyers last pair of defenseman if he can stay healthy, teaming up with either Braydon Coburn or Andrej Meszaros on the Flyers’ third pair. O’Donnell’s a hard-nosed kind of guy and someone who certainly will help bring a fiery edge to the team this year.  Here’s a look into the Flyers defensive pairings for next season.

Chris Pronger – Matt Carle

Kimmo Timonen – Braydon Coburn

Andrej Meszaros – Sean O’Donnell

…not too shabby.
