Flyers sign Aubin

Philadelphia has filled the absence created due to Antero Niittymaki's injury by signing Jean-Sebastien Aubin to a one-year contract earlier today.

The Flyers website has the details.

“I’m happy to come to a great organization like the Flyers,” said Aubin, 31. “I know a lot of the guys on the team. They have a lot of faith in me and it is a really good fit for me to come here.”

Getting Aubin is hardly ideal. His save percentage the past two seasons was .886 and .876 and he hadn't found a suitor all summer even without a lot of options out there in free agency.

The good news is that, if Niittymaki can get back within the next month or so, Aubin likely heads to the AHL awful soon.
