Report: Simmonds, Flyers agree to six-year extension

Late Wednesday night, a report surfaced from TSN's Bob McKenzie that the Flyers and forward Wayne Simmonds agreed to a six-year contract extension worth somewhere in the neighborhood of $24 million.

The 23-year-old Ontario native posted career bests of 28 goals and 49 points while playing in all 82 regular-season games during his first year in Philadelphia, adding a goal and five assists in 11 playoff appearances. He was acquired from the Los Angeles Kings in a package for Mike Richards on June 23, 2011.

Simmonds, who has one more year remaining on his current deal, was slated to make $2 million after banking $1.5 million last season, according to NHLnumbers.com.
