The Philadelphia Flyers have signed gritty forward Ryan White to a one-year extension, the club announced on Tuesday.

According TVA’s Renaud Lavoie, the deal is a one-way contract worth $800,000.

White recorded career highs in goals (6), assists (6) and points (12) in 34 games with the Flyers last season. The 27-year-old also appeared in 11 American Hockey League games with the Lehigh Valley Phantoms, scoring a goal and two assists.

He missed the first three months of the season recovering from an injury to his left pectoralis muscle suffered during an off-season workout.

The new contract gives White a $225,000 raise on his previous deal.

Per Generalfanager.com, the Flyers have 13 forwards, seven defensemen and a goaltender under contract for next season with a little over $6 million in cap space to work with heading into July 1.
