Sergei Bobrovsky traded to Columbus Blue Jackets according to report

According to Darren Dreger of TSN, the Philadelphia Flyers have traded goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky to the Columbus Blue Jackets for three draft picks.

The deal hasn't been confirmed by the NHL yet.

The Flyers will get the Blue Jackets' 45th pick in the draft as well as a pair of 4th round picks (117th pick this year and a 4th in 2013). The Flyers previously didn't have a pick in the 2nd round of this year's draft, which starts tonight.

Bobrovsky, 23, wasn't comfortable in a back-up up role for the Flyers, whereas in Columbus, he will get a chance to be the starter. Steve Mason, the Jackets starting goalie last season, struggled and Howson was looking to improve with a younger and experienced goalie.

In two season with the Flyers, Bobrvosky posted a 42-23 record with a 2.73 GAA and a .909 save percentage. He has never posted a shutout in his NHL career.
