Akeson signed a two-way deal worth $575,000 Wednesday, reports John Vogl of The Buffalo News.

The undrafted former Kitchener Ranger has been very productive for the Flyers' AHL affiliate over the past two seasons, scoring 117 points in 127 games. The diminutive winger was held without a point in 13 games with the Flyers this past season, and was subsequently released as a free agent. Akeson will provide some scoring depth for Buffalo, but he'll have to battle for a roster spot in training camp.

Akeson was reassigned to AHL Lehigh Valley on Monday, TheAHL.com reports.

Akeson appeared in the Flyers' regular-season finale Saturday against the Senators, seeing 13:21 of action. Over 13 games with the Flyers this season, Akeson failed to score a single point, a surprise development after he lit up the AHL ranks for 22 goals and 51 points in 53 games. At 24 years old, he's not really much of prospect at this stage and may only be viewed by the Flyers as organizational depth.

The Flyers have sent Akeson to AHL Lehigh Valley.

Akeson was recalled from AHL Lehigh Valley on Saturday.

The Flyers moved defenseman Braydon Coburn (lower body) to open up the 23-man roster spot for Akeson. With Scott Laughton nursing an upper-body ailment, Akeson's arrival will help the Flyers restore some depth at forward. However, Akeson's opportunities to join the lineup could be limited, as he was a total non-factor after earning a roster spot with the parent club out of training camp. He was held without a point over 12 games with Philadelphia before getting placed on waivers.
