Welcome to Julylights, a month long series taking the top plays of the '11-'12 season and giving them to you one a day, every day of the month of July. Thanks to a breakout year for the Philadelphia Flyers, and a little publicity in the 24/7 series, Claude Giroux has burst onto the hockey scene. He has become one of the league's top offensive forces, scoring highlight...
via TSN, The Philadelphia Flyers have locked up one of their own restricted free agents, signing forward Jakub Voracek to a four-year, $17 million contract.
The deal was first reported by Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia.
Voracek, 22, scored 18 goals and 49 points in 78 games with the Flyers last season.
Voracek was drafted by the Columbus Blue Jackets in the 1st round (seventh...
The Flyers signed forward Jakub Voracek to a multi-year contract extension on Thursday.
Voracek came to Philadelphia last season in the deal that sent forward Jeff Carter to Columbus and had a big debut season in the Eastern Conference. He had 18 goals and 49 points in 78 regular-season games last season, and finished third on the Flyers in postseason scoring with 10 points.
The Flyers offseason hasn’t exactly gone to script so far, but there was finally some good news to report yesterday. The Flyers finally agreed to terms with winger Jakub Voracek, a restricted free agent, on a 4-year, $17 million deal.
Jakub Voracek came to the Flyers as part of the Jeff Carter trade to Columbus, and while he struggled in the early going of last season, he got it...
Claude Giroux had surgery on both of his wrists after the Flyers were eliminated from the playoffs last season, and now the assistant captain says Sidney Crosby is the reason why.
Giroux told the Timmons Press in Ontario that Crosby’s hacking throughout the playoffs injured him.
“[The scars] are from (Sidney) Crosby,” Giroux told the Timmons Press. “Every time we’d line...
The Philadelphia Flyers and Pittsburgh Penguins do not like each other. Not at all. In fact, they flat out hate each other. Despise. Loathe. Any word you can think of, that is how the two teams from Pennsylvania feel toward one another.
Claude Giroux is simply looking to add a little bit more fuel to this never ending fire on the ice.
In yesterday's Shea Weber offer sheet post mortem press conference, Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren said it was only a matter of time until the club got a deal done with Jakub Voracek.
It turns out that it may have been just a matter of hours. Late last night, the Czech media got wind of a 4 year, $17 million agreement between the Flyers and Voracek. This report is still...
The Philadelphia Flyers have taken many swings that have all resulted in misses in landing some of the marquee free agents this offseason, with Shea Weber being just the latest. The Flyers were a bit taken back when the Nashville Predators matched the 14 year/$110 million offer sheet that the Flyers gave to Weber last week.
And with the aftermath of missing out on yet...
There was not much of note said during Paul Holmgren's press conference yesterday. The Flyers general manager reiterated that he is happy with his team (a line he uses at every one of these press conferences whether a major roster move is forthcoming or not).
Holmgren stated the obvious in saying that the club took its best shot at landing a true franchise defenseman with...
The four-year, $17 million contract signed yesterday by right winger Jakub Voracek is right in line with the market value that has been established this offseason. Once players such as Teddy Purcell signed their new deals for north of $4 million per season, there was no way the Flyers were going to be able to lock up Voracek for the long term at a lesser figure than that.

With the departure of Jaromir Jagr in free agency and the trade of James van Riemsdyk, the restricted free agent status of Jakub Voracek placed the Flyers’ forward corps in question.
But concerns regarding Voracek were quelled this morning, as the Philadelphia Flyers locked up the 23-year old winger to a...
