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

Atkinson had spent his entire 10-year career with Columbus and amassed 402 points in 627 games, including a career-best 40 goals and 69 points two years ago. His cap hit is $5.875 million, and there are four years remaining on his current deal. While 32, Atkinson still has a lot left in his proverbial gas tank and should provide a boost to the Flyers' top six.
