Voracek has been traded to the Blue Jackets from the Flyers in exchange for Cam Atkinson, reports Sportsnet.ca.

It's a hockey deal, with Atkinson headed east to the Flyers. Voracek has had a long and productive career in orange and black, including 43 points in 53 games in his 10th year there. But Columbus was his first NHL home -- he was drafted seventh overall by the Blue Jackets in 2007 and spent his first three season in Ohio. Voracek brings a playmaking flair to the Jackets and will be expected to be a top-six leader with the many changes they've made this offseason. He has three years left on his current deal at a cap hit of $8.25 million in each season.
