The Philadelphia Flyers claimed Mike McKenna off waivers Thursday, becoming the third team to have the goalie on their roster in three days.

The Vancouver Canucks placed McKenna on waivers Thursday, one day after acquiring him in a deal with the Ottawa Senators.

The Flyers later announced that goaltender Michael Neuvirth is day-to-day with a lower-body injury and will not be available Saturday against the Calgary Flames.

"Mike provides our organization added depth as we continue to battle injuries at the goaltending position," Flyers general manager Chuck Fletcher said Friday. "He is a veteran goaltender with a tremendous amount of professional experience."

McKenna, 35, posted a 1-4-1 record with a .897 save percentage and a 3.96 GAA with the Senators this season. He served as the Canucks backup goaltender on Wednesday and Thursday.

He could become the seventh goaltender to start a game for the Flyers this season.
