The Philadelphia Flyers have agreed to terms with rugged forward Ian Laperriere and goalie Brian Boucher.

The team announced the agreements with the unrestricted free agents in a conference call Wednesday, the first time of the NHL free-agent season.

Boucher, who was a backup goalie for the San Jose Sharks, backstopped the Flyers' run to the 2000 Eastern Conference finals in an earlier stint with Philadelphia. He will likely be a backup this time behind recent acquisition Ray Emery.

Laperriere had seven goals, 12 assists and 163 penalty minutes last season with the Avalanche, his third with Colorado. He has also played for St. Louis, the New York Rangers and Los Angeles in a 15-season NHL career.
