The Philadelphia Flyers announced on Friday that they're parting ways with veteran forward Cam Atkinson.

In a post on social media the Flyers shared that they'll be buying out the final year of Cam Atkinson's contract, which will make him an unrestricted free agent once the process is completed.
Flyers GM Danny Briere commented on the decision on Friday, thanking Atkinson for his contributions to the organization for the past few season.
"When it comes to someone with the accomplishments and character of Cam, this was an exceptionally tough decision to make.

Throughout his time with the Flyers, Cam has displayed an incredible work ethic and level of professionalism that is a true credit to him as a player and person. I've witnessed firsthand the amount of effort, dedication, and perseverance he went through during an incredibly tough rehabilitation process in order to come back and be a leader for our team on and off the ice.

I would like to thank Cam for all he has put into raising the standard of our team. Cam will always have a place in the Flyers organization, and we wish all the success for him and his family in the future." Briere said.

Atkinson, 35, appeared in 70 games for the Flyers this season where he had 28 points (13 goals, 15 assists), 27 penalty minutes and was a minus-22.
More to come.
