The Philadelphia Flyers have signed defenceman Nick Schultz to a one-year contract worth $1.25 million.

Schultz, 31, split the 2013-14 season between the Edmonton Oilers and Columbus Blue Jackets, posting five assists and 28 penalty minutes in 69 total games.

Originally drafted in the second round (33rd overall) by the Minnesota Wild of the 2000 NHL Entry Draft, he has appeared in 880 games with the Minnesota Wild, Oilers and Blue Jaskets.

Schultz was traded to Edmonton in exchange for Tom Gilbert on February 27, 2012 and spent parts of three seasons with the Oilers before being traded to Columbus for a fifth-round draft pick at the trade deadline on March 5, 2014.

The club also signed forward Zack Stortini to a one-year, two-way contract later in the day. The 28-year-old spent the 2013-2014 season with the Anaheim Ducks organization, playing with their American Hockey League affiliate, the Norfolk Admirals. He scored four goals and added five assists with a league-leading 299 penalty minutes.
