Center Sean Couturier signed a multiyear contract with the Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday. Terms were not released, but Sportsnet reported it's for six years and $26 million, an average annual value of $4.33 million.
Couturier, the eighth pick in the 2011 NHL Draft, could have become a restricted free agent after this season.
"It's a great organization, they believe in me," Couturier told CSNPhilly.com. "I'm really happy to be there for the next six years. I love the organization, the city. I think the future is bright in Philly. Hopefully we can do some good things during those six years."
