Philadelphia Flyers Sign Promising Young Defenseman To One-Year Deal

The Philadelphia Flyers have signed promising young defenseman, Egor Zamula, to a one-year contract extension worth $775,000, according to an announcement by Interim General Manager, Daniel Briere.

Zamula, who would have become a restricted free agent this summer, had a solid 2022-23 season. He recorded four assists in 14 games with the Flyers and posted 19 points in 44 games with Lehigh Valley of the American Hockey League.

Zamula's progress was unfortunately cut short due to a left shoulder injury that required surgery, causing him to miss the 2023 Calder Cup Playoffs. Nevertheless, the Flyers are confident he will make a full recovery in time for training camp in September.

The 23-year-old from Chelyabinsk, Russia, first joined the Flyers in 2018 as an undrafted free agent and has since proven himself as a valuable asset to the team.

Over the course of his career, Zamula has contributed four assists, six PIM, and 17 shots in 26 NHL games with the Flyers since 2020-23. He has also recorded 54 points, one power-play goal, one game-winning goal, and 184 shots in 127 career matches with Lehigh Valley over three seasons (2020-23).

The Flyers will be hoping that Zamula can continue to develop his skills and become an even greater asset to the team in the years to come. Photo Credit: Kyle Ross-USA TODAY Sports
