The Philadelphia Flyers on Friday agreed to terms with defenseman Robert Hagg, their second-round pick (No. 41) in the 2013 NHL Draft. Contract details were not released.

Hagg, 19, will arrive in North America on Monday and report to the Adirondack Phantoms of the American Hockey League.

The 6-foot-2, 204-pound 18-year-old had one goal and five assists in 50 games with Modo in the Swedish Hockey League. He had one goal in seven games to help Sweden win the silver medal at the 2014 IIHF World Junior Championship. Hagg won silver with Sweden at the 2013 WJC.

Quote of the Day

He seemed to thrive on his own and didn't really need any push from me. I certainly don't want to get in the way of the coaches. You see how that goes sometimes. I never really worried about it and just enjoyed the ride.
