DEREK GRANT GOES TO PHILADELPHIA

The Philadelphia Flyers acquired forward Derek Grant from the Anaheim Ducks for a conditional fourth-round draft pick in 2020 and forward Kyle Criscuolo.

What does it give the Philadelphia Flyers
The Flyers added fourth-line center candidate Nate Thompson in a deal with Montreal earlier, and now they get another one in Grant. Will both Grant and Thompson play on the same line (fourth) in Philadelphia? Will they share the fourth-line center role? Stay tuned.

What does it give the Anaheim Ducks
The fourth-round draft pick is the main piece coming back to Anaheim in this deal in exchange for the club's fourth-line center. Grant was enjoying a solid season in Anaheim but he was a pending unrestricted free agent making very little money. Criscuolo is an AHL body.

Fantasy impact
Grant will likely play less in Philadelphia on a playoff contender, so his numbers should slow down with the Flyers. It is time to sell high on Grant in virtually all fantasy formats. Criscuolo has no fantasy value.
