Carter, Flyers agree to long-term extension @NHLdotcom

PHILADELPHIA (AP) -Jeff Carter and the Philadelphia Flyers plan to be together for a very long time.

The star forward signed a long contract extension on Saturday, a deal reported by several media outlets to be for 10 years and worth $58 million. The 25-year-old Carter could have become a restricted free agent on July 1.

Beginning next season, Carter's salary-cap hit will be $5.27 million, slightly above the $5 million against this season's cap. This deal was announced five days after fellow forward Claude Giroux agreed to a three-year, $11.25 million contract.

Flyers captain Mike Richards is playing under a 12-year, $69 million contract that he signed during the 2007-08 season.
