Flyers re-sign Raffl to reported three-year, $7.05M extension


Trade deadline talk was interrupted, at least briefly, with a wave of bad puns.

The Philadelphia Flyers signed winger Michael Raffl to a three-year contract extension on Sunday, allowing people to make unimaginative raffle jokes.

(OK, some of them were probably pretty solid. Not enough of them are David Bowie related, however.)

The contract totals $7.05 million, which entails a $2.35 million cap hit, according to ESPN’s Pierre LeBrun.

With this addition, the Flyers have $62.97 million in cap space devoted to 17 players, according to Cap Friendly’s numbers.

Of course, that number could go down if the Flyers, ugh, raffle off a few players during the trade deadline.
