What Travis Konecny’s 6-Year $33 Million Deal Means for the Flyers

The Philadelphia Flyers signed Travis Konecny to a six-year, $33 million ($5.5 million AAV) extension on Monday. Konecny, 22, is no longer a restricted free agent with his new deal. Part of the deal does include performance bonuses. 

The winger played 82 games last season and scored 24 goals and a career-high 49 points. The Flyers selected the forward 24th overall in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft. He developed his game over the years playing in different roles and scenarios. The 5-10, 175-pound winger plays with a chip on his shoulder. Flyers fans admire his mix of grit and playmaking ability. 

Expect Konecny to play in the Flyers top-six line-up. Konecny is a key piece in the Flyers roster, alongside with Claude Giroux and Sean Couturier. He also represents a new generation of youth with top rookies like Nolan Patrick and Carter Hart. 

Now that Konecny is signed, there are other top restricted free agents without a contract. These players include Brayden Point, Patrik Laine, and Brock Boeser. Now that preseason is starting, expect some moves this week.
