On Tuesday afternoon the Philadelphia Flyers made yet another offseason move by signing Daniel Carcillo to a new one-year deal.

Carcillo has played a huge part in the Philadelphia Flyers' success over the last two seasons, and the front office thought highly enough of him to bring him back in for one more tour of duty.

Over the course of last season, Carcillo led the Flyers as the physical enforcer. Carcillo led the team in hits with 194 and piled up 207 penalty minutes in the process. He also showed a fair amount of puck skill, tallying 22 points (12G, 10A).

Carcillo's biggest impact on the Flyers came in the 2010 NHL playoffs where he scored the game-winning overtime goal against New Jersey in the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals.

Flyers fans probably had a large role in this signing because of the popularity Carcillo received over the course of this year's playoffs. Many fans sported orange t-shirts with Carcillo's likeness on the front to help support the Flyers during their playoff run.

One-year contracts are becoming a rarity in the NHL now that the salary cap has become a main focus of many teams. Carcillo's terms were not enclosed in the statement released by the Flyers.

Philadelphia has now signed six players this offseason to help them get back to the Stanley Cup Finals.
