Flyers general manager Ron Hextall continued his rebuild of the Philadelphia Flyers with another deal.  Zac Rinaldo, a member of the Flyers since being drafted by the team in 2008, has been traded to the Boston Bruins.  The Flyers will receive a third round draft pick in return.

The Flyers broke the news themselves:

Bill Meltzer notes that Rinaldo does not represent a large cap hit, but the team acquires an asset in return.

Rinaldo made his Flyers debut in 2011.  Hextall signed Rinaldo to a two-year contract extension back in September.   So, the free agent-to-be netted the Flyers a third-round pick instead of walking away altogether.  Well done, Hextall.
