The Philadelphia Flyers and Tony DeAngelo have reached an agreement on a two-year, $10-million contract extension, ensuring the pending unrestricted free agent would not hit the open market after he was acquired in a trade earlier in the day.
The Flyers also acquired the 220th pick in the 2022 NHL Draft from the Carolina Hurricanes as part of the deal that brought DeAngelo to the City of Brotherly Love. In exchange, Caroline received pick No. 101, a third-round pick in 2023 and a second-round pick in 2024.
DeAngelo produced 10 goals and 41 assists with a plus-30 rating in 64 games with the Hurricanes last season.
Prior to joining the Hurricanes, DeAngelo played four seasons with the New York Rangers and one with Arizona Coyotes — where he began his NHL career.
In 2019-20, DeAngelo broke out with 15 goals and 38 assists in 68 games for the Rangers, but the following year he was at the centre of a lot of controversy on and off the ice, culminating in an altercation with then-teammate Alexandar Georgiev outside the locker room following an overtime loss. He was subsequently bought out by New York.
