PHILADELPHIA — The Philadelphia Flyers acquired defenseman Mark Streit from the New York Islanders on Wednesday for minor-league forward Shane Harper and a fourth-round pick in 2014.

Streit, the Islanders' captain, has 65 goals and 288 points in 491 regular-season NHL games and is a sharp, left-handed shot from the blue line that is much needed as Philadelphia reshapes its roster.

Streit, though, is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent July 5, meaning he can sign anywhere. But the Flyers now own his rights until then and can negotiate a new deal with him exclusively until that time.
