Flyers Sign Sam Morin to Three-Year Contract

The Philadelphia Flyers have signed first-round pick, defenseman Sam Morin, to a three-year deal according to the team. The deal is worth $4.275 million.

Morin’s first camp with the team has been a great one (via Philly.com)

Morin, 18, was selected with the 11th overall pick in the 2013 NHL Draft. He impressed many in his first game with the Flyers, last night’s 4-3 shootout loss to the Washington Capitals, making a couple of nice passes including a beautiful set-up for Vincent Lecavalier’s third-period tally. In fact, Lecavalier remarked “this kid’s going to bein the league for a long, long time” after last night’s game.

He will not, however, spend the season with the pro club; instead, he will likely return to the QMJHL to play with the Rimouski Oceanic after the first nine games (therefore avoiding using up the first year of his deal).

    Hopefully that means they’re developing him as defensive future and not setting him up as a trade piece in a couple years. Still has a lot of work but I wouldn’t be surprised to see him play a few games this season.

      I agree. He’s raw but talented, and this deal allows him to play nine games at the beginning of the season before being sent down.
