Detroit, MI (Sports Network) - The Philadelphia Flyers have reportedly agreed to terms with free agent forward Dan Cleary on a three-year contract.

The Detroit Free Press was the first to break the news on Tuesday, stating the deal is worth $2.75 million per season. The Flyers have yet to confirm Cleary's signing, likely due to the fact they are currently over the salary cap.

According to the Free Press, the Flyers will make the transaction official in late September, when the club is able to place concussed defenseman Chris Pronger's $5 million salary on long-term injured reserve.

Cleary has spent the last eight seasons in Detroit and helped the Red Wings to their last Stanley Cup in 2008. The 34-year-old had just nine goals and 15 points in 48 regular-season games this past year, but was the team's second- leading scorer in the playoffs after notching four goals and six assists in 14 contests.

The 15-year veteran, who has previously played with Chicago, Edmonton and Phoenix in addition to the Wings, has amassed 160 goals, 217 assists and 455 penalty minutes in 869 career games. Cleary's best season came with Detroit in 2010-11, when he recorded personal highs of 26 goals and 46 points.
