Fantastic news for all Flyers fans, the club announced today that they have officially re-signed winger Joel Farabee to a six year contract extension. This contract will take Farabee up until he is 27 years old and solidifies his spot in the Flyers lineup for years to come. It’s also a fantastic deal for the team as Chuck Fletcher was able to work his magic once again.
Only $5 million a year for a guy that scored 20 goals in 55 games last year, I’ll take it. Farabee proved last season that he has that pure goal scorer potential. While there were times he was streaky, hopefully he grows on his success from last season and is able to provide some much needed offense for this Flyers team.
Another great move in what has been one of the best Flyers off-season in years.
