The Philadelphia Flyers jumped into the Euro free agent market on Thursday and made a pretty significant signing.
Chuck Fletcher has landed one of the SHL's top scorers as the Flyers have signed Linus Sandin.
The forward was never drafted by an NHL team but his brother Rasmus is currently with the Toronto Maple Leafs.
NHL insider Chris Johnston reports that Linus had offers from multiple teams and chose the Flyers.
The contract will be made official once the NHL finalizes the new international transfer agreement.
Swedish forward Linus Sandin intends to sign with the Philadelphia Flyers -- although he can't officially do so until the NHL finalizes new international transfer agreements. Sandin was one of the SHL's top scorers with 19 goals for HV71 last season and had multiple NHL offers.
