Flyers GM Paul Holmgren announced this evening that the club has agreed to a two-year contract extension with forwards Zac Rinaldo and Jay Rosehill.
Rinaldo posted three goals and five points to go along with 85 penalty minutes in 32 games for the Flyers this season.
He is currently out of the line up, missing the last seven games, with a high-ankle sprain on his left leg. Prior to his injury, he was one of the Flyers leaders in hits this season, posting 143 in 32 games.
Rinaldo also missed four games from Jan. 22-27 due to lacerated right thigh.
Rosehill was acquired around the trade deadline from the Anaheim Ducks on Apr. 1 in exchange for Harry Zolnierczyk.
Since joining the Flyers, he has one goal and 47 penalty minutes in seven games.
BEST OF MAXIM
Wednesday night, the Philadelphia Flyers took to twitter to announce that two-year contract extensions had been signed by both Zac Rinaldo and Jay Rosehill. Rinaldo, 22, would have been a restricted free agent at the end of the season. Due to his play this season, he is very deserving of this contract extension. Although he is [...]
Playing for respectability in the waning weeks of the strike-shortened 2013 season, the Flyers managed to hold off a late rally from the Rangers Tuesday night for their 19th win of the season.
The Flyers (19-21-3), 5 points behind the Rangers for 8th place in the Eastern Conference, were fresh off of a 7-3 smackdown of the Montreal Canadiens comming into the Wells Fargo Center...
Interesting reaction on Twitter from Columbus Blue Jacket fans living in the midwest to Steve Mason.
They all like him but the book on him, they say, is that he can be very good or very average. Which sounds very much like what the Flyers have gotten from Ilya Bryzgalov these past two years.
I don't think for a second Mason was brought here to unseat Bryz as the No. 1....
The Philadelphia Flyers' wins in the last two games are of little consequence to this lost season. Ranked 22nd of the NHL's 30 teams and 11th in the Eastern Conference with five games remaining on their schedule, the playoffs are not a realistic scenario even though Philly is not yet mathematically eliminated.
However, Philadelphia's 7-3 win in Montreal on Monday...
Brayden Schenn, Erik Gustafsson and Kimmo Timonen scored to give Philadelphia's faint playoff hopes a boost, and the Flyers beat the New York Rangers 4-2 on Tuesday night for their second win in two nights.
Mats Zuccarello and Derek Stepan scored for the Rangers, who have a tenuous hold on the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. The Rangers have 46 points...
When looking at the NHL as a whole, it is easy to see that several NHL netminders thrive when given a second chance to prove their worth.
As an example, one can point out the likes of Ray Emery (Chicago Blackhawks), Carey Price (2010-11 with the Montreal Canadiens), Craig Anderson (Ottawa Senators) and so on and so forth. One can probably name several players in this particular...
The Rangers winger Carl Hagelin obviously doesn’t have much respect for Flyers forward Brayden Schenn. Tuesday night, Hagelin gave Schenn a little “who’s your daddy?” slash to a region no man wants to get hit.
Game officials either share Hagelin’s lack of respect for Schenn or were skating with their eyes closed because there was no penalty called on the play.
The Philadelphia Flyers came into tonight’s contest seven points behind the New York Rangers for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. With six games remaining in the shortened season, the Flyers needed to play perfect hockey for the remainder of the season in order to keep their playoff hopes alive. The [...]
Last night, the Habs Goon/forward Ryan White caught Flyers defenseman Kent Huskins in the head with this dirty check. You have to wonder if the NHL will be giving White a very long suspension? White was given a Match Penalty for this bushleague hit on Huskins. These are also the types of hits, that the NHL is trying to eliminate.
Yesterday, the Flyers GM announced that Kent...
The Philadelphia Flyers did the Sabres a solid by kicking the NY Rangers on Tuesday night. The Winnipeg Jets refused to help the Sabres, who sit all alone in tenth place (42 points) with five games remaining. If Buffalo are going to make a serious move to secure a share of the eight-seed, they have no choice other than to win its next two games in regulation: at Boston tonight and at home to...
