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

I spent a long summer thinking about that playoff series and what could have been. [The Blackhawks] ended up being the Stanley Cup champions, so we know we lost to a very good team. It's tough to know how close we were, and it motivates us for this year.

— Nashville captain Shea Weber in an interview with the Predators website
