The Philadelphia Flyers and general manager Chuck Fletcher made the announcement everybody was waiting for on Monday. 

The team has signed forward Travis Konecny to the long term contract he was hoping for. 

It's a six year deal that comes with an AAV of $5.5million. 

"We are happy to have Travis under contract for the next six seasons," said Fletcher. "Travis has shown progression in each of his three seasons and is an integral part of our group of young forwards. His speed, skill and tenacity sets him apart in today's NHL."

Over the last couple of days we've heard the two sides were pretty far apart because Konecny was looking for a long term deal.
