Philadelphia Flyers Extend Andrew MacDonald

It’s been reported that the Philadelphia Flyers have signed Andrew MacDonald to a 6 year extension for $30 million. AMac was set to become a free agent at the end of the season and apparently the Flyers front office liked what they saw in the 27-year-old defenseman.

Here are the twenty closest cap-hits via CapGeek.

According to Bill Meltzer this would have been the asking price for AMac on the open market.

Even if that happens to be the case, the collective groan from the Flyers blogosphere has been pretty prevalent.






Andrew MacDonald will be a free agent in 2020. Considering the money the Flyers just gave him it seems safe to assume the front office expects him to be a cornerstone defenseman with this team going forward.
