Arron Asham to Decide Soon, Wants to Stay a Flyer

Written By Tom Dougherty On Wednesday, July 28, 2010

Asham might be showing the Flyers unrequited love.

Arron Asham will make a decision on his playing future by the end of next week, according to Jason Hendricks.

Asham hopes to return to Philadelphia, but the Flyers have not offered him a contract. Hendricks says that the Canadiens and Oilers could be interested in Asham.

The 32-year-old right winger spent the last two seasons playing for the Orange and Black, and is coming off a solid season in which he played with youngsters Claude Giroux and James van Riemsdyk.

Asham scored 10 goals and 14 assists in 72 games last year. He also scored seven points in 23 playoffs games.

In his two seasons with the Flyers, Asham registered 18 goals and 26 assists for 44 points in 150 games.

Asham, who has played for four teams in his 11-year career, was known strictly for being an enforcer before coming to Philly. During his time with the Flyers, Asham showed flashes of being capable of scoring 20 goals in the right situation.

With the signing of Jody Shelley and the re-signing of Darroll Powe, the Flyers do not have a roster spot for another forward nor the cap space for another player without moving someone else.

So, unless something else is going on, Asham will be playing somewhere else in 2010.
