Ryan Poehling inks two-year contract extension with Flyers

The Philadelphia Flyers have signed forward Ryan Poehling to a two-year, $3.8 million contract extension, according to Flyers general manager Daniel Brière.

The Fourth Period’s David Pagnotta originally reported that Poehling and the Flyers agreed to a deal on Friday, but the team has now confirmed it.

Poehling originally signed a one-year, $1.4 million deal with the Flyers on July 1st, providing the organization with another young depth center.

In his inaugural season on Broad Street, the 25-year-old has recorded 5 goals and 9 assists for 14 points in 45 games so far. He also leads the club’s forwards in blocked shots with 45 and has been a steady and solid defensive-minded bottom-six forward in John Tortorella’s lineup.

Before joining the Flyers, Poehling was drafted 25th overall by the Montréal Canadiens in 2017 before making his NHL debut in the Canadiens’ 2018-19 season finale, where racked up a hat trick and the shootout winner against Toronto. The Lakeville, Minnesota native was then traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins along with Jeff Petry in 2022 for Mike Matheson and a draft pick before signing with the Flyers this past summer.

In 182 career contests with the Canadiens, Penguins, and Flyers, Poehling has recorded 25 goals and 25 assists for 50 points.
