- Dave Isaac of the Courier Post: The Flyers have re-signed Zac Rinaldo to a two-year contract extension with a cap hit of $850,000 per season. Rinaldo would have been a RFA at the end of this season.
“I’m surprised that we’d even started to talk about it so early, but I am thrilled,” Rinaldo said in a statement. “Philadelphia is where I started my NHL career, and this is where I want to be, so I am really happy. This definitely gives me a lot of confidence by the Flyers showing that they have confidence in me. I know they want to see me get better as a player, and this is the place to do it.”
