Flyers sign Talbot to five-year deal @NHL

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - The Flyers on Friday signed free-agent forward Maxime Talbot to a five-year contract.

Talbot, 27, is a 5-foot-11, 190-pound center, who had eight goals and 21 points last season for the Pittsburgh Penguins. He was a minus-3 for the year and finished with 66 minutes in penalties as Pittsburgh totaled 106 points.

Talbot's deal is worth $9 million, and he became the second former Penguin in one day to decide to play on the other side of Pennsylvania.

An hour before Talbot agreed with the Flyers, Philadelphia announced a one-year deal for free-agent forward Jaromir Jagr, a former All-Star who was a first-round draft pick of the Penguins in 1990.

The Flyers also signed free-agent defenseman Andreas Lilja, 35, away from the Anaheim Ducks, and gave a contract extension to right wing Jakub Voracek, 22, acquired from Columbus in the Jeff Carter trade last week.
