The Flyers have announced that they have signed defenseman Brandon Manning to a one year contract extension.
Manning, 24, has played in 20 NHL games throughout his career, and 10 this season. He’s been earning the coach’s trust over his recent call up where he is averaging just about 17 minutes of ice time per game. This means the Flyers now have 7 defenseman under contract for the start of next season and that is not including RFA d-man Michael Del Zotto. Manning’s deal comes with a small cap hit of just $625k which is a nice change compared to the other pricey top 6 defenseman we have.
