Flyers sign goaltender Michal Neuvirth to 2-year extension

Colby Armstrong, Ryan Whitney, Doug MacLean and Ilya Bryzgalov talk about their past experiences during the NHL trade deadline.

The Philadelphia Flyers have signed goaltender Michal Neuvirth to a two-year, $5-million contract extension.

Neuvirth is in his second season with the Flyers, and has gone 10-9-1 in 24 appearances, posting a 2.90 goals-against average and .887 save percentage.

The 28-year-old, earning $1.625 million, was due to become an unrestricted free agent this off-season.

His numbers were much stronger last season, when the Czech netminder went 18-8-4 with a 2.27 goals-against average and .924 save percentage.

The signing gives the Flyers a goalie to expose at the upcoming expansion draft as Steve Mason will become an unrestricted free agent this summer.

Philadelphia will have to expose one of Neuvirth and restricted free agent Anthony Stolarz.
