PITTSBURGH - The Flyers have traded backup goalie Sergei Bobrovsky to Columbus for three draft picks.
The Flyers confirmed they will receive Columbus' 45th and 117th picks this year and a fourth-rounder next year.
Before the deal, the Flyers had no second-round picks in this year's draft.
Bobrovsky, 23, had an impressive rookie season, but struggled in his sophomore year -- going 14-10-2 with an .899 save percentage and a 3.02 goals-against average. He never seemed comfortable as Ilya Bryzgalov's backup.
