Big news out of Philadelphia on Monday.
The Philadelphia Flyers and general manager Chuck Fletcher took a big name off the trade board and that's because they're keeping him in Philly.
Fletcher announced that the team has signed Scott Laughton to a contract extension.
Laughton was labeled as a top trade chip at this year's trade deadline with the possibility of becoming UFA this offseason.
Instead Fletcher has locked him up to a 5 year deal with a $3million AAV.
The move keeps Laughton in Philly and also means he'll have to be protected in the upcoming expansion draft.
Scott Laughton 5 x $3M with PHI per @TSNBobMcKenzie
