Flyers acquire Mattias Timander from the Islanders

The Philadelphia Flyers picked up yet another defenceman on Thursday, acquiring Matthias Timander from the New York Islanders for a seventh-round pick in 2004.

The Flyers blueline has taken a huge hit recently, with Eric Desjardins, Marcus Ragnarsson, Dennis Seidenberg and Jim Vandermeer all out. Philadelphia added defenseman Danny Markov on Tuesday, and he will be playing in his second game with the team tonight.

Timander has a goal and an assist in five games with New York this season.
