Bob McKenzie of TSN announced Wednesday evening that right winger Wayne Simmonds has signed a six-year extension with the Flyers with an average cap hit of around $4 million per year. Specific financial terms of the agreement have yet to be confirmed.
Simmonds was traded by the Los Angeles Kings along with forward Brayden Schenn and a second round pick in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft in exchange for former captain Mike Richards and prospect forward Rob Bordson on June 23, 2011.
The 6’2″, 183-pound forward recorded 28 goals and 21 assists (49 points) during the 2011-12 season. He has been a powerful asset to the team’s power play unit.
Simmonds has one more season remaining on his current contract. The extension will keep him with the Flyers through the 2018-19 season.
