The Columbus Blue Jackets traded forward R.J. Umberger and a fourth-round pick in the 2015 draft to the Philadelphia Flyers in exchange for forward Scott Hartnell, the teams announced Monday.
Umberger had 18 goals and 34 points in 74 games for the Blue Jackets in 2013-14.
The 32-year-old left winger spent his first three NHL seasons with the Flyers, who traded him to the Blue Jackets in June 2008 for two draft picks.
Umberger has 169 goals and 366 points in 673 career games, and has scored at least 20 goals five times in nine seasons. He has three seasons left on his contract and will cost $4.6 million against the salary cap.
Hartnell had 20 goals and 52 points in 78 games in 2013-14, his seventh in Philadelphia. He scored at least 20 goals in five of those seven seasons, including a career-best 37 in 2011-12.
The 32-year-old left winger just completed the first season of a six-year, $28.5 million contract and waived his no-trade clause to facilitate the trade. Hartnell's contract has an average annual value of $4.75 million through the 2018-19 season.
In 953 NHL games with the Nashville Predators and Flyers, Hartnell has 250 goals and 537 points. He also has 19 goals and 47 points in 91 Stanley Cup playoff games.
