The Flyers avoided arbitration with Scott Laughton by agreeing to a two-year, $4.6 million contract. The average annual value of $2.3 million is a raise from the $962,500 he made last season.
Laughton, 25, posted career highs in goals (12) and points (32). He projects as third-line winger or fourth-line center next season.
Laughton was the Flyers first-round pick in 2012. He’s missed just one game in the last two seasons and was due to have an arbitration hearing on July 30.
