Rinaldo, 24 (6/15/1990) will be entering his fourth NHL season in 2014-15.  He appeared in 67 games for the Flyers last season, recording two goals and two assists along with 153 penalty minutes. He ranked second on the Flyers with 231 hits while playing an average of 7:41 per game, giving him an average of 2.23 hits per minute of ice time.

“I’m surprised that we’d even started to talk about it so early, but I am thrilled,” Rinaldo said. “Philadelphia is where I started my NHL career and this is where I want to be so I am really happy.  This definitely gives me a lot of confidence by the Flyers showing that they have confidence in me.  I know they want to see me get better as a player, and this is the place to do it.”
 
After concluding his Ontario Hockey League junior career in 2010, Rinaldo joined the Flyers’ American Hockey League affiliate, the Adirondack Phantoms, for the 2010-11 season.  He appeared in 60 games, recording three goals and six assists while ranking second in the AHL with 331 PIM.
 
Rinaldo joined the Flyers for the 2011 Stanley Cup Playoffs, appearing in two games, and made his regular season Flyers debut the following season. He appeared in 66 games that year, posting two goals and nine assists while ranking second in the NHL in penalty minutes with 232.  He was second on the Flyers in hits (175) while playing just 7:28 per game, giving him an average of 2.82 hits per minute of ice time.  He played 31 more games for the Phantoms in the first part of 2012-13, recording two goals, three assists and 92 PIM before the start of the NHL season.  With the Flyers, Rinaldo recorded three goals, two assists and 85 PIM in 32 games that year.  
 
A native of Mississauga, Ontario, Rinaldo was selected by the Flyers in the sixth round (178th overall) of the 2008 NHL Entry Draft.
