Mormina takes game to PhiladelphiaNews: 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." Analysis: The 27-year-old Mormina spent 2008-09 with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the AHL. He totaled two goals and 11 points in 70 games. He also had a plus-37 rating. Mormina has appeared in just one NHL game and has pretty much just been organizational depth in his career. It's safe to ignore him in Fantasy.
