Grossmann signs extension with Flyers

Nicklas Grossmann has fit in well with the Philadelphia Flyers since arriving in February, and they have rewarded him with a four-year extension worth $14 million.

The team announced the signing Friday, and a club official confirmed the terms.

Grossmann joined the Flyers before the trade deadline from the Dallas Stars for second- and third-round picks, and has thrived while helping the team replaced injured captain Chris Pronger. He has six assists in 22 games and has added an a physical presence to the blue line corps the Flyers were missing without Pronger, who is out for the season with a concussion.

Quote of the Day

We're buyers. We're committed to winning. That's what [owner Vinnie Viola] has said all along and what we've said all along. We want to win. We want to win a championship. We're putting the pieces together, step by step, and we're hopeful that Jaromir can lead these young guys to the promised land. It's a win-win for us.
