Kent Huskins is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent this summer.
Flyers GM Paul Holmgren is considering re-signing Huskins, but he cautioned that the team is still in the evaluation process. Still, he had nothing but good things to say about Huskins, who is out with a concussion. "He's been around the block a few times and he's played in a lot of big games and it shows," Holmgren said. "He played on a Stanley Cup champion. That experience is something that you can't teach young players. When you have a guy ... and we were missing an older [veteran], that's what he brought to our team. We pretty much know what Kent did and what he does for a team. He's not going to rush the puck end to end. He is going to play defense and move the puck up. He's a quality person." Philadelphia acquired Huskins from Detroit for a conditional seventh round draft pick. He would provide the Flyers with some extra defensive depth, but he doesn't have any fantasy value.

He has been cleared to play tonight. The Wings take on the Blue Jackets at Nationwide Arena in Columbus. Huskins left Friday's 5-3 victory over the Blues after a crushing hit by David Backes, but the impact looked worse that it was. Detroit general manager Ken Holland told the Free Press that Huskins "had tests after the game. All negative. Huskins is playing (tonight)."

Huskins has seven points and a plus-9 rating in 25 games with St. Louis last season. He'll join a Detroit team which is in desperate need of help on the back end. That said, he'll likely be more of a depth player for the Wings and isn't all that useful from a fantasy perspective.
