Hagg, the 13th overall pick in Friday night's Entry Draft and a 2023 second-round pick were traded by the Flyers to the Sabres on Friday in exchange for Rasmus Ristolainen on Friday, ESPN's Kevin Weekes reports. Hagg appeared in 34 games with the Flyers in 2020-21, picking up five points and 100 hits while averaging 15:40 of ice time per contest. The 26-year-old Swede will likely slot into a bottom-pairing role with the Sabres next season.
Hagg scored a goal on his lone shot and had two PIM in a 7-2 win over Pittsburgh on Monday. He also had two blocks and one hit. Hagg completed the scoring for the Flyers, converting a one-timer from the high slot with 65 seconds left in the third period. It was just the second goal of the season for the 26-year-old defenseman and his first since Feb. 7.
Hagg (upper body) will be activated from injured reserve for Thursday's game versus the Islanders. Hagg will return to the lineup after 11 games on the shelf. The 26-year-old brings a physical presence to the blue line, as he's racked up two points and 63 hits through 21 games this year.
According to coach Alain Vigneault, Hagg (upper body) is "probably a couple days" from being ready to return. Hagg will need to be activated off injured reserve before rejoining the lineup, so look for that announcement to precede his return to action. The 26-year-old blueliner has tallied two points in 21 games this season.
Head coach Alain Vigneault said Thursday that Hagg (shoulder) is expected to miss 2-4 weeks. Hagg left Wednesday's loss to the Rangers after logging just 6:12 of ice time. He was subsequently placed on injured reserve and will presumably be out until April at the earliest. Hagg was rotating in the lineup with Erik Gustafsson, Nate Prosser and Shayne Gostisbehere. The latter trio will garner more stability from Hagg's absence.
