The Philadelphia Flyers and defenseman Nicklas Grossmann have agreed to a multiple-year contract extension today, according to Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren.

Grossmann was acquired by the Flyers on Feb. 16 from the Dallas Stars in exchange for a second-round pick in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft, previously acquired from Los Angeles, and a third-round pick in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft.

He has appeared in 22 games for the Flyers, recording six assists and a plus-minus rating of plus-5 to go along with 10 penalty minutes.

Overall in 2011-12, Grossmann has 11 assists and 36 penalty minutes in 74 games.

He was injured in the Flyers-Penguins game on Apr. 1 and is currently listed as day-to-day with a lower-body injury.

He was selected by Dallas in the second round (56th overall) of the 2004 NHL Entry Draft.
