Philadelphia Flyers sign forward Scott Hartnell to a six-year contract extension

PHILADELPHIA - The Philadelphia Flyers signed left-winger Scott Hartnell to a six-year contract extension worth US$28.5 million on Monday.

The deal with the six-foot-two, 210-pound Hartnell kicks in after the 2012-13 season, when he is scheduled to make $3.2 million in the final year of his previous contract.

The 30-year-old had 37 goals and 30 assists in 82 games with the Flyers in 2011-12. He also added three goals and five assists in 11 playoff games.

In 843 career NHL games with the Flyers and Nashville Predators, Hartnell has 222 goals, 252 assists and 1,279 penalty minutes. He also has 19 goals and 24 assists in 84 playoff games.

The Regina native was Nashville's first pick, sixth overall at the 2000 draft.

Quote of the Day

It was a different game in the past, that's for sure. It's not exactly what I was expecting but I think the experience paid off for a lot of our guys that realized what it takes in a Game 7. Realistically the effort we put forward, we might not even had to put 60 [minutes], but we just couldn't get a couple bounces to go our way and we just kept pushing.
