Earlier this afternoon it was announced that Scott Hartnell signed a six year, $28.5 million extension with the Philadelphia Flyers which will start after this season. He is the second forward in the past week to sign a six year extension with the Flyers after the team extended Wayne Simmonds late last week. In regards to the signing Hartnell tweeted the following:
Hmm…feel like I’ve heard other Flyers make those same comments after signing extensions. Yeah about that…. (Sorry, I couldn’t resist.)
Congrats Hartsy! And I mean that. As a rival fan, I hate the guy but he definitely makes the Flyers better and deserves the extension. Kirsten Swanson will have more about this on It’s Always Icy on Broad Street later this evening.
