Veteran right winger Bill Guerin has agreed to a tryout with the Philadelphia Flyers.

Guerin, who will turn 40 in November, took part in an informal workout with the Flyers on September 1 and scrimmaged with 30 other Flyers players last week.

"Right now I'm just kind of skating and being around the guys," Guerin told the Courier-Post after a 50-minute scrimmage Thursday. "This is a team I would definitely like to play for, but we'll see."

Guerin was released from the Pittsburgh Penguins on August 27th when the club decided not to bring him back for the 2010-11 season. He recorded 21 goals and 24 assists in 78 games and four goals and nine points in 11 playoff contests last season.

The 17-year veteran has won two Stanley Cups and played in 1,263 games, totaling 856 points (429G, 427A) with a career plus/minus of 51.

The Flyers are coming off a season where they won the Eastern Conference title, and made it to Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Finals.
