PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Philadelphia Flyers avoided arbitration with Brayden Schenn, signing the forward to a $20.5 million, four-year contract.
Schenn will count $5.125 million against the salary through the 2019-20 season. Agent Don Meehan confirmed the terms of the deal.
The 24-year-old had 26 goals and 33 assists for 59 points last season. Schenn has 84 goals and 109 assists for 193 points in 354 regular-season games for the Los Angeles Kings and Flyers.
Acquired in the 2011 trade that sent Mike Richards to Los Angeles, Schenn blossomed from a highly-touted prospect into a top-six forward for the Flyers. He was a restricted free agent and had his arbitration hearing scheduled for Monday.
Schenn and the team agreed on the contract before the hearing.
