It was relatively quiet today on the NHL transaction front but a pair of former NHL centers find themselves in the news.
- Capitals UFA center Zach Sill has signed a one-year contract with Sparta Praha, the Czech Extraliga team announced (link in Czech). The 30-year-old was largely an NHL regular back in 2014-15 with Pittsburgh and Toronto but has spent the bulk of his time in the minors since then. Last season, Sill suited up in all 76 games with Hershey of the AHL, recording 22 points and 60 penalty minutes.
- Roman Lyubimov, who remains property of the Flyers, was released by CSKA Moscow, per an announcement by the KHL (link in Russian). The 26-year-old center played in 47 games for Philadelphia back in 2016-17 but opted to go back home following the season but they still tendered him a qualifying offer to retain his rights. Lyubimov will likely now look to land elsewhere in the KHL but if the Flyers have any interest in bringing him back to North America, they will probably be in touch with him as well.
