Hartman, 24, was acquired at the Feb. 25 deadline in the Wayne Simmonds trade. The Flyers also received a 2020 fourth-round pick in that deal.

Pitlick, a 27-year-old who can play center or winger, is 6-foot-2, 201 pounds and appeared in only 47 games last season because of wrist surgery in February. He finished with 12 points (eight goals, four assists) in 2018-19. His best season came in 2017-18, when he scored 27 points (14 goals, 13 assists) in 80 games with Dallas.

"I'm a physical, north-skating player," Pitlick said, via Flyers public relations. "I can score and make plays when I get the chance. I'm going to be physical and I'm going to create energy and compete as hard as I can."

Pitlick is on the final year of a three-year contract with a cap hit of $1 million.
