The Flyers acquired three-time 40-goal scorer Tony Amonte from the Coyotes yesterday for two draft picks and a minor leaguer.
In exchange for Amonte, the Coyotes got LW Guillaume Lefebvre, Philadelphia's second-round draft pick in the 2004 draft and Atlanta's third-round pick this season, which the Flyers got in a trade last season.
Amonte has 13 goals and 23 assists in his first season with Phoenix. The 32-year-old right wing signed a $24 million, four-year contract with the Coyotes last offseason after spending 81/2 seasons with the Blackhawks.
"He's not just a scorer. He's got great speed, great hands. He can kill penalties and can be used in the last couple of minutes of a period or a game," Flyers GM Bob Clarke said. "This is a real top acquisition to our club."
In other deals, the Sabres traded RW Rob Ray to the Senators for future considerations, then dealt captain Stu Barnes to the Stars for C Mike Ryan and Dallas's second-round selection in the 2003 draft. The Stars also acquired Blackhawks D Lyle Odelein in exchange for D Sami Helenius.
* EXTENSION: D Aaron Miller agreed to terms with the Kings on a four-year, $14-million contract extension.
* SUSPENSION: Coyotes F Andrei Nazarov was suspended indefinitely by the NHL, pending a hearing on the match penalty he received against San Jose last Saturday. He was to miss at least last night's game at Colorado.
* ARREST: Blackhawks captain Alex Zhamnov was arrested and charged with driving under the influence of alcohol in suburban Chicago.
