The Flyers have signed defenseman Samuel Morin to a one-year contract extension with an AAV of $750,000.

Morin appeared in 20 of his 29 career games this past season (2020-21) and recorded his first NHL goal, which was a game-winning goal vs. NY Rangers on Mar. 27… He averaged 10:12 of ice time per-game.

Despite being limited to 20 games, he ranked third on the team in penalty minutes (37) and recorded 38 hits.

He has spent parts of the last five seasons with the Flyers organization, appearing in 29 games with one goal and 45 penalty minutes.

Morin twice battled back from season-ending knee injuries that required surgery.

He has also appeared in 177 regular season games for the Flyers’ AHL affiliate, the Lehigh Valley Phantoms, where he has posted 44 points (8g-36a) to go along with 289 penalty minutes.

Internationally, Morin has helped Team Canada win gold medals at both the IIHF World U-18 Championships (2013), and the World Junior Championship (2015).

He was selected in the 1st Round (11th overall) in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft.
