Philadelphia Flyers' 2005 NHL Draft pick Matt Clackson has signed a two-way contract with the Washington Capitals' organization.

The deal is a one-year contract where Clackson will earn $525,000 at the NHL level and $75,000 at the AHL level. Clackson was the Flyers' seventh pick in the 2005 NHL Draft and went 215th overall in the seventh round. He spent four seasons in the Flyers' system, but never played a game for the Flyers and has yet to play a single game in the NHL. After his third year at Western Michigan University, Clackson joined the Philadelphia Phantoms for two games in 2007-2008 going pointless with 19 PIMs including three fighting majors, two of which came against the Hershey Bears, the Washington Capitals AHL affiliate.

The Phoenix Coyotes don't plan on re-signing Matt Clackson, who they acquired as part of the recent Ilya Bryzgalov trade.

It looks like the Coyotes just accepted Clackson in the deal for procedural reasons, so he will be looking for work as a free agent this summer. The main prize in the deal for Phoenix was Philadelphia's third round pick.

The Phoenix Coyotes acquired Matt Clackson, a 2012 third round pick, and future considerations to the Philadelphia Flyers in exchange for Ilya Bryzgalov.

Both Clackson and Bryzgalov are scheduled to become free agents this summer. Clackson had four points and 118 penalty minutes in 62 AHL games in 2010-11. He has no fantasy value.
