The Philadelphia Flyers have signed LW Greg Carey to a contract extension, according to general manager Ron Hextall.
Carey, 26 (4/5/1990), is in his fourth professional season. Through 57 games with the Flyers' American Hockey League affiliate, the Lehigh Valley Phantoms, Carey has 26 goals and 17 assists for 43 points. The 26 goals lead the Phantoms, and ranks second overall in the AHL this season, while his 17 goals on the power play lead all players in the AHL.
His 43 points rank fourth in scoring on the team. All three totals match his career highs set one season ago with the Springfield Falcons, where he finished the year with 26 goals and 17 assists for 43 points over 64 games.
A 5-10, 204-lb native of Hamilton, Ontario, Carey has appeared in 163 career AHL games with the Phantoms, Springfield, and Portland. Over that time, he has collected 55 goals and 39 assists for 94 points. He began his pro career in 2013 following a four-year career at St. Lawrence University in New York.
