Flyers Need A Defenseman, Showing Interest In Ryan Whitney

from Frank Seravalli of the Philadelphia Daily News,

According to a source, the Flyers reached out to defenseman Ryan Whitney's camp yesterday to gauge interest.

No deal had been reached yesterday, but one could be brokered soon, depending on how Gostisbehere plays and whether the Flyers can get eyes on Whitney's physical condition.

Whitney, 31, arrived in Sochi, Russia, only yesterday after signing with the KHL's HC Sochi. His deal with HC Sochi is a 1-year deal and he has an "out clause" to return to North America at any point. HC Sochi plays next tomorrow.

A text message delivered to Whitney's cellphone by the Daily News in Russia went unreturned. His agent, Paul Krepelka, neither confirmed nor denied the Flyers' interest.

"Ryan is signed with a KHL team as of now," Krepelka said. "I don't want to comment any further than that - I'll leave that up to Ronnie ."
