The Flyers have re-signed defenseman Marc-Andre Bourdon to a multi-year contract extension, according to GM Paul Holmgren. The Orange and Black also agreed to terms with first-round pick Scott Laughton on a three-year, entry-level deal.
Bourdon, 22, appeared in 45 games last season and contributed four goals, with a plus-4 rating. He adds much-needed depth on the blue line after the Flyers lost Andrej Meszaros to a possible season-ending injury Tuesday.
Laughton, 18, was the 20th overall pick in June’s NHL draft. The center racked up 53 points in 64 games for the OHL’s Oshawa Generals last season.
