Flyers Sign Young Defenseman To Multi-Year Deal After Breakout Season

The Philadelphia Flyers have made a strategic move by securing defenseman Cam York with a two-year contract extension worth $3.2 million.

At just 22 years old, York impressed with his playmaking skills during a breakout season, tallying 20 points in 54 games.

The Flyers recognize his potential and believe that reuniting him with struggling defenseman Travis Sanheim could prove mutually beneficial. This short-term deal with minimal financial commitments allows York to continue his development while providing the team with a promising young talent on their blue line.

York's performance and growth have been impressive, earning him a well-deserved contract extension. Despite being cut from Flyers training camp previously, he made a strong comeback and established himself at the NHL level.

With the potential for increased ice time and the opportunity to play on his preferred side, York's game is expected to further improve, making him a valuable asset for Philadelphia.

Having excelled in college hockey and represented the United States internationally, including winning gold at the 2021 IIHF World Junior Championship, York has proven his capabilities on various stages.

With this two-year deal, both the Flyers and York benefit from the opportunity to showcase his potential over the next seasons, setting the stage for a potential long-term extension as he continues to develop as a solid defenseman for the team. Photo Credit: Kyle Ross-USA TODAY Sports
