The Philadelphia Flyers have signed off on another six-year contract.

After re-upping Wayne Simmonds to a six-year extension last week, the Flyers secured left wing Scott Hartnell for six years, $28.5 million, according to a source reported by's Tim Panaccio.

Hartnell, who expressed a desire to remain a Flyer after career-best totals of 37 goals, 67 points and 16 power-play goals last season, also got a no-movement clause, the source said.

He finished his fifth season as a Flyer ranked sixth in the NHL in goals and second in power-play goals, and played in his first NHL All-Star Game. He played all 82 games last season, and has missed just three games in his five seasons in Philadelphia.
