Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - The Philadelphia Flyers and forward Mike Knuble have agreed to terms on a one-year contract.
The move was made necessary after the Flyers discovered Thursday that forward Scott Hartnell is expected to miss 4-to-8 weeks with a broken toe in his left foot.
Knuble spent the last three seasons with the Washington Capitals, recording six goals and 12 assists over 72 games last season.
The 40-year-old, who previously played in Philadelphia from 2005-09, has collected 274 goals and 266 assists through 1,040 career games with the Red Wings, Rangers, Bruins, Flyers and Capitals.
Philadelphia also recalled defenseman Andreas Lilja from Adirondack on Friday.
