Flyers Inside Out
JAY AND ZAC COMING BACK

One area the Flyers certainly weren’t lacking this season was in physical play. And now, they are making sure they will have that same grit for the next couple seasons.

The Flyers announced today that they signed both Zac Rinaldo and Jay Rosehill to two-year contract extensions.

Rinaldo, 22, who was easily the Flyers most-improved player this season before suffering a high ankle sprain April 3 that cost him the rest of the season, inked a $1.5 million extension that will give the Flyers an annual cap hit of $750,000.

“I’m just really honored to be part of the organization for another two years,” Rinaldo said. I am really pleased with where I am right now and I’m ready to fulfill my next two years with the Flyers.”

Rinaldo had three goals and five points in 32 games this season for the Flyers and finished with 85 penalty minutes.

But perhaps more impressive was the fact that he finished with 143 hits, which, despite missing 11 games so far this season still ranks ninth in the NHL. He does rank first in the league though by a wide margin in hits per 60 minutes with 32.

Rosehill, 27, was slated to become an unrestricted free agent in the offseason but passed up on free agency to sign with the Flyers.

Locked in as the team’s enforcer for the next couple seasons, Rosehill signed a $1.35 million deal which will bring a cap hit for the Flyers of $675,000.

“I’m really excited,” Rosehill said. “A lot of things have changed for me the past two weeks. I’ve come to this organization and I feel part of it right away. I can’t think of myself in a better position right now than with the Flyers. It’s a really good fit.”

Rosehill was acquired just before the trade deadline in a deal that sent Harry Zolnierczyk to the Anaheim Ducks.

He has one goal and 47 penalty minutes in seven games this season with the Flyers.
