After 10 seasons In Philadelphia, Jakub Voracek happy to return to Columbus Blue Jackets

It was time to leave Philadelphia. After spending a decade in the “City of Brotherly Love,” Jakub Voracek wasn’t feeling much affection the past couple of seasons. He and Philadelphia Flyers coach Alain Vigneault were at odds, his contract had become a problem and Voracek made bigger headlines last season for calling a reporter a “weasel” than for contributing nine goals, 34 assists and 43 points in 56 games for a team that missed the playoffs.

Blue Jackets' Jakub Voracek: Forming connection with Laine

Voracek has seen consistent time this preseason on a line with Patrik Laine, and the duo has combined for two goals and seven points in two exhibition games, Brian Hedger of The Columbus Dispatch reports. "It's obviously been fun to play with him and just try to kind of build chemistry," Laine said after Monday's win over the Sabres. "I felt like we had some good looks right away when we got put together (in training camp) and (we're) still learning about each other, how we play."

Nearly a month since then, and with training camp a month away, we wanted to learn more about the trade reaction and so much more as Voráček is set to embark on his reunion in Columbus.

Columbus Blue Jackets Trade Cam Atkinson for Philadelphia Flyers Jakub Voracek

The Columbus Blue Jackets recently announced that they have traded right wing Cam Atkinson for right wing Jakub Voracek of Philadelphia Flyers. Atkinson, a Connecticit native, was a gem for the team and his trade was quite significant. Currently he sits second on the club’s all time list in terms of points, goals, games played, power play goals, and game-winning goals. He ranks fourth in assists. From 2013-2019 he notched 20-plus goals in six-straight campaigns. The Blue Jackets have been the only National Hockey League (NHL) organization Atkinson has been with after scoring 213 goals in 627 goals. He is now headed for Philadelphia as Voracek, of Czech Republic, returns to play for the Blue Jackets.

Philadelphia Flyers: A requiem for Jakub Voracek

Alas, poor Jakub Voracek, I knew him. Pretty well, too. That’s what happens when a player spends a decade in your city, but that time is now over after the Philadelphia Flyers dealt Voracek to Columbus this past weekend for Cam Atkinson. It was a statement move by the Flyers and GM Chuck Fletcher, as they finally cut the cord with a core member of the team’s leadership group. Looking back on Jake’s time with the Flyers, I find his legacy to be a fascinating one.
