Grossmann signs extension with Flyers
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

There was a lot of talk off the ice. From a player's standpoint, that's not the talk in the room. GMs make decisions, coaches make decisions, but as a team you have to come together and be ready to go, and we are.
