Flyers Sign Wayne Simmonds to Six-Year Contract Extension

The Philadelphia Flyers announced today that they have re-signed 6-2, 183-lb right wing Wayne Simmonds to a multi-year contract extension, according to General Manager Paul Holmgren.

“We are pleased to announce that we have agreed to a multi-year extension with Wayne Simmonds,” Holmgren said. “Wayne plays the game with courage and honor and we believe he will continue to be a very good winger for our organization.”

"I'm extremely happy to have this deal in place,” Simmonds said. “We're going to have a good team in Philly for a long time and I just wanted to be able to be a part of hopefully bringing a championship back to the Philly faithful."

Simmonds, who turns 24 on August 26 (8/26/88), was acquired by the Flyers from the Los Angeles Kings on June 23, 2011.

He set career highs in his first season with the Flyers in goals (28) and points (49), while also seeing more playing time (15:55 avg TOI) and taking more shots (197) than any other season in his four-year career.

A native of Scarborough, Ontario, Simmonds was selected by the Kings in the second round (61st overall) of the 2007 NHL Entry Draft. He has 67 goals and 75 assists for 142 points, along with 378 PIM, in 322 career NHL games.

I wouldn't be so ire signing a forward to a long term deal tends to happen just before we trade him and two thirds of them have ended up in LA

great signing. wayne simmonds brings everything you want in a young power forward, he's strong in front of the net, on the walls, he can skate, he can score and he can fight. i'm obviously pumped about this.

Not gonna lie.... I wasn't much of a fan of Simmonds besides knowing he was a big body out there who hits, fights and stirs things up, but man did he ever come into his own as one of the leagues upcoming power forward stars and grats to philly for signing him for the long haul!

Good job Philly. Love the way he plays the game, and can't imagine too many on this site would disagree. I'd take him on the Hawks any day.

I think this is a steal for what they're getting in Simmonds. Damn them!
