Flyers Land AmonteArchived from 2002-03 season.
The Philadelphia Flyers acquired three-time 40-goal scorer Tony Amonte from the Phoenix Coyotes for two draft picks and a minor leaguer.
In exchange for Amonte, the Coyotes get left wing 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.
"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 general manager Bob Clarke said. "This is a real top acquisition to our club."
