Columbus drafted Voracek seventh overall in 2007. He spent three seasons with the club before joining the Flyers in 2011. The 31-year-old is one of the league's premier set-up men, notching nine goals to go with 34 assists in 53 games last season.

Atkinson, 32, has spent his entire 10-year career with the Blue Jackets. He recorded 402 points in 627 games with the club, highlighted by a 41-goal campaign in 2018-19.

Both the Flyers and Blue Jackets have been busy to start the offseason. Philadelphia has made moves to acquire Ryan Ellis and Rasmus Ristolainen, while Columbus dealt star blue-liner Seth Jones to Chicago in a blockbuster deal on Friday.
