Fan favorite Wayne Simmonds’ hard work finally pays off as he lands new contract. Congratulations Wayne! This from CBS Sports’ Adam Gretz…
The Philadelphia Flyers have agreed to terms with forward Wayne Simmonds on a six-year contract extension according to TSN’s Bob McKenzie.
It’s a big commitment by the Flyers at this point in Simmonds’ career, but he’s good young player and should be a part of their core, and it will also run through what should be his peak offensive years in the NHL.
Not much else to this report, but here’s the rest. And here’s Bob’s tweet… -PA
Wayne Simmonds has agreed to 6 year extension with PHI. Not sure on precise AAV but hearing it’s around $4M per year.
