One day after playing in his first game with the Grand Rapids Griffins, Mike Knuble is headed back to the NHL.

The 16-year NHL veteran has signed a one year deal with the Philadelphia Flyers. Knuble was a fan favorite when he played for the Flyers from 2006-2009.

Knuble was previously an unrestricted free agent and hoping for an opportunity in the NHL while playing with Grand Rapids.

He had one assist in his debut with the Griffins last night in a 5-4 shootout win over the Oklahoma City Barons.
