The Philadelphia Flyers acquired defenseman Brennan Menell from the Toronto Maple Leafs on Wednesday in exchange for future considerations, according to a report from ESPN.

Menell, 24, appeared in five games with the Minnesota Wild during the 2019-20 campaign. He has appeared in 20 games this season for the AHL’s Toronto Marlies, registering one goal and four assists in 20 games.

The 5-foot-11 Minnesota native also has 15 penalty minutes and a minus-6 rating for the Marlies this season.

Although the NHL trade deadline was Monday, Menell will be able to play this season for Philadelphia’s AHL affiliate, the Lehigh Valley Phantoms.
