The right wing is coming off a season in which he scored 21 goals and registered 46 points while playing for the Toronto Maple Leafs and Flyers, who gave up a 1st and 3rd round pick in the 2011 draft to acquire Vergsteeg in February. The Flyers will receive a second rounder in either 2012 or 2013, as well as a third rounder in 2012.

The 25-year-old has scored at least 20 goals in each of his three full NHL seasons. In his NHL career, he has a +/- of 13 after recovering from a -13 with the Maple Leafs to post a +4 with the Flyers.
