Two Departures

Credit to the INCH Update Desk for being the first place I saw these.

Alaska's Kyle Greentree and Bowling Green's Jonathan Matsumoto have both signed professional contracts with the Philadelphia Flyers. Greentree was an undrafted free agent, while Matsumoto was drafted by the Flyers in the third round of last year's draft.

Neither departure is particularly surprising. Both players had good years on teams that struggled. Greentree was born in 1983, so it was probably important for him to start his pro career as soon as possible.

One potential sidenote to this is that if Philly is signing a bunch of forwards for next season, perhaps they may be willing to let St. Cloud's Andreas Nodl stay in school for at least another year before signing him.
