Flyers bring Hagg into fold

Flyers GM Paul Holmgren locked up defensive prospect Robert Hagg on Friday morning.

The 19-year-old native of Sweden was given a one-year, entry-level contract.

Hagg, who was taken in the second round of last year's draft, has totaled one goal and five assists with 47 penalty minutes in 50 games for MoDo Ornskoldsvik this season.  

Bill Meltzer of Hockeybuzz stated this morning that Hagg may be further along the path to the NHL than fellow 2013 draft choice Samuel Morin, but that Hagg lacks some focus at times.
