• Philadelphia To Buy Out Bartulis

    News: Philadelphia has placed Oskars Bartulis on unconditional waivers in order to buy out the remaining year of his three-year contract, TSN's Bob McKenzie reports.

  • Flyers Waive Bartulis

    News: The Flyers waived Oskars Bartulis, Matt Walker, and Blair Betts on Tuesday, according to CSN Philly.
    Analysis: Oskars Bartulis had been fighting for the seventh defenseman spot with Walker, but it's possible the team could bring him back in that role if Walker gets claimed and he doesn't, as right now the team has just six healthy blueliners. Either way, there's not much value so long as he's not guaranteed playing time.

    News: Bartulis suffered an upper body injury Tuesday against the Coyotes, the Flyers' official site reports.

    News: Bartulis will see increased paying time with Chris Pronger (foot) on the shelf for the next 4-to-6 weeks, Philly.com reports.
    Analysis: Bartulis hasn't played since Nov. 1. He'll likely have some rust, but he'll get plenty of time to work it off as Pronger is likely out at least 10 games.

  • Bartulis still out for Flyers

    News: Philadelphia D Oskars Bartulis continues to be plagued with an injured groin and he missed Wednesday's contest at Florida. He has now missed both games since the Flyers returned from the Olympic break.
