Blue Jackets trade forward Cam Atkinson to Philadelphia Flyers for Jakub Voracek

The Columbus Blue Jackets announced Saturday that forward and 10-year veteran Cam Atkinson has been traded to the Philadelphia Flyers.

In return, the team has acquired Flyers forward Jakub Voracek.

Atkinson has spent his entire professional hockey career with Columbus, scoring 213 goals and 189 assists in 627 career games.

Voracek, who started the first three years of his career with the Blue Jackets, has spent the last nine with the Flyers.

Voracek has posted 216 goals and 522 assists in 968 career games.

“Adding a player like (Voracek) comes at a cost and I want to thank Cam Atkinson for his many contributions to the Blue Jackets and Columbus community over the past 10 years,” said General Manager Jarmo Kekalainen. “He has made a lasting impact on our club and I wish he, Natalie and their family all the best.”

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: and let's talk some hockey!
