The Flyers have made a move.

With just minutes remaining before the NHL trade deadline, general manager Paul Holmgren pulled the trigger on a trade to somewhat clear up the logjam on their blue line. Sportsnet’s Dan Murphy reports the Flyers have traded defenseman Andrej Meszaros to the Boston Bruins in for a third round pick.

Meszaros, 28, carries a $4 million cap hit that expires at the end of the season when he will become an unrestricted free agent. The Slovakian-native has five goals and 12 assists in 38 games in 2013-14 despite spending most of the first half of the season as a healthy scratch.

The Bruins began to show interest in Meszaros last week. It solidifies the Bruins’ blue line who was searching for some depth after losing Dennis Seidenberg to a torn ACL and MCL.

On the Philadelphia side of the things, Holmgren gets back a draft pick after dealing two away yesterday for Andrew MacDonald.
