For 10 seasons, Cam Atkinson was to Columbus what Claude Giroux has been to the Flyers — a franchise icon.

So you can understand why the emotions will be swirling Thursday, when Atkinson, now the Flyers’ leading goal scorer, faces his former team for the first time in his career.

“I don’t know if it’s quite hit me yet,” Atkinson said.  “There’s definitely going to be some emotion there. I feel like it’s probably going to be more emotional when we go to Columbus. … It’ll definitely be interesting.”
