The deal is worth a reported $7.05 million and carries an annual average value of $2.35 million.You can scratch Michael Raffl off the list of potential trade candidates ahead of Monday’s trade deadline. The Flyers have inked the forward to a three-year extension. According to ESPN’s Pierre LeBrun, the deal carries an annual average value of $2.35 million. Raffl has eight goals and nine assists while averaging 14:17 of time on ice per-game in 61 contests this season.
The 6-foot, 195-pound forward gives the Flyers versatility up front as he has played all three forward positions this season. The 27-year-old would’ve become an unrestricted free agent this summer as his two-year, $2.2 million contract was set to expire. Raffl, an undrafted, free-agent signing by the Flyers in May 2013, has appeared in 196 games with Philadelphia over parts of three seasons scoring 38 goals and 67 points.
"The next three years should be the best years of my career, experience wise and maturity wise. I'm looking forward to that."— Philadelphia Flyers (@NHLFlyers) February 28, 2016
