The Flyers announced Thursday they signed forwards forwards Lukas Kaspar, Krys Kolanos, Mika Pyorala and Jason Ward and defenseman Joey Mormina to one-year contracts. "Lukas, Krys and Jason are experienced skilled players who have each had a share of NHL time during their careers," Flyers GM Paul Holmgren said. "We feel each player solidifies our organizational depth at the forward position. Mika is a 28-year-old player with a wealth of experience in the European Elite Leagues and is capable of playing all forward positions. Joey is a player we are familiar with and drafted back in 2002. He has AHL experience and we feel he will be a positive influence on our young defensemen in Glens Falls, as well as providing depth to the organization."
The Sharks recalled forwards Lukas Kaspar and Brad Staubitz Tuesday from its AHL affiliate in Worcester, Mass.

The San Jose Mercury News reports Sharks coach Todd McLellan made a few changes to his lines Tuesday, putting Lukas Kaspar on the left wing of the top unit with center Joe Thornton and right wing Devin Setoguchi. That means Patrick Marleau moves from the first line to the third, centering Mike Grier and Jonathan Cheechoo. "Ninety-nine percent of that is a function of injury," Coach Todd McLellan said. Marcel Goc is on injured reserve and Tomas Plihal day-to-day with a lower body injury, so the Sharks are thin at center, and McLellan decided the best course of action was to move Marleau back to his former position.
