Publish date:

In his first season as a Philadelphia Flyer, having arrived as part of the Mike Richards trade with the Los Angeles Kings, forward Wayne Simmonds posted career highs with 28 goals and 49 points. So it's no surprise that the Flyers have agreed to a six-year extension with the right wing, who turns 24 on Aug. 26. According to Bob McKenzie of TSN, the deal is for about $24 million.
