Flyers sign Laughton to 2-year, $4.6M extension

The Philadelphia Flyers and forward Scott Laughton agreed to a two-year contract extension with an average annual value of $2.3 million, the team announced Friday.

Laughton was a restricted free agent and had an arbitration hearing scheduled for July 30.

The 25-year-old tallied career highs in goals (12) and points (32) while finishing third on the Flyers with 146 hits in 82 contests last season. He also played a major role on the penalty kill, logging the second-most shorthanded ice time per game among forwards.

Laughton was selected by Philadelphia with the 20th overall pick in the 2012 draft and has recorded 79 points in 272 career games.
