PHILADELPHIA -- The Philadelphia Flyers on Saturday signed rookie forward Michael Raffl to a two-year, $2.2 million contract extension.

Raffl, who signed a one-year, $925,000 contract May 31, 2013, could have become a restricted free agent this summer.

The 25-year-old has nine goals and 21 points in 57 games. He's developed into one of the Flyers' most versatile performers and a top penalty killer, averaging 1:44 per game, fourth-most among their forwards. He has 91 hits, fifth among forwards, and 37 blocked shots, tied for third among forwards.

Raffl had three points in four games for Austria at the 2014 Sochi Olympics.

Quote of the Day

It's about enjoying the moment. It's pretty cool to get that many people together and that excited about hockey to the point they really want you to mess up. They've got a ton of red jerseys and you have to sit back and appreciate people love hockey that much and you are the one out there who gets to play the game. Just try and stick with that respect for the game and also the mentality that for me it's just about entering the fight and seeing how long I can stay in it.
