REPORT: Former 20 goal scorer - Veteran of over 700 games - Signs PTO

Published November 15, 2022 at 9:56 PM

Our beloved game is becoming more and more of a youngster persons game, so these veteran players are having a hard time finding places in the league and have been forced to sign Professional Try Outs.

This veteran player spent the entire 2021-22 season playing in the KHL where he actually produced fairly well. In 27 games he scored 8 goals and 19 points. This player is Artem Anisimov.

Anisimov was a second round pick by the New York Rangers back in 2006, and last played for the Ottawa Senators.

He signed a PTO with the Philadelphia Flyers this season, but suffered a broken bone in his foot during pre-season and was cut from his PTO.

The Flyers did apparently like what they saw in this veteran though as it was announced today that their affiliate team the Lehigh Valley Phantoms have signed Anisimov to a PTO.

Anisimov has played in 771 games over his career, scoring 180 goals and 376 points while being a member of the New York Rangers, Columbus Blue Jackets, Chicago Blackhawks and Ottawa Senators.
