A familiar face is rejoining the Flyers.
Philadelphia on Sunday acquired goaltender Brian Boucher and defenseman Mark Alt from Carolina in exchange for center Luke Pither.
The 36-year-old Boucher has spent most of his 14-year NHL career as a backup. He started eight games last season, losing all but one of them.
Alt was drafted by the Hurricanes in 2010. The 21-year-old defenseman had five goals and 17 assists for the Minnesota Golden Gophers last season.
