Flyers sign goaltender Samuel Ersson to 2-year extension

The Philadelphia Flyers signed goaltender Samuel Ersson to a two-year extension, the team announced Saturday.

The extension, which has an average annual value of $1.45 million, will take effect in 2024-25.

Ersson was slated to become a restricted free agent after the expiration of his entry-level contract next summer.

The 23-year-old got his first taste of NHL action in 2022-23, posting a 6-3 record, .899 save percentage, and 3.07 goals against average in 12 showings.

Ersson also took some reps in the AHL this past season, registering a .900 save percentage and 2.84 goals against average in 42 games with the Lehigh Valley Phantoms.

Philadelphia selected Ersson in the fifth round of the 2018 NHL Draft.
