t has become apparent that Eric Desjardins and Kim Johnsson, who are both unrestricted free agents, will not be coming back.
Yesterday, Clarke said the Flyers have decided not to re-sign Johnsson, who missed the playoffs and played only 47 games this season because of severe concussion symptoms.
Desjardins, 37, most likely will retire after 17 NHL seasons, Clarke said. The Flyers will not re-sign any of their other unrestricted free agents – Donald Brashear, Brian Savage and Chris Therien. Without Johnsson and Desjardins, the Flyers will be left with just five NHL defensemen.
