from Anthony SanFillippo at the Flyers' website,
If there was any question at all as to whether the Flyers viewed Matt Read as part of their long-term core that was answered in resounding fashion late Friday.
The Flyers and Read agreed on a four-year contract extension that kicks in beginning next season.
The contract is for $14.5 million, or an average annual value of $3.625, which will serve as his cap hit beginning in the 2014-15 season.
“We’re excited and happy we finally got this done,” said general manager Paul Holmgren. “This has been going on for the better part of the summer. We’re happy and I’m sure Matt’s happy. He’s one of the young, core players on our team.”
