Morgan Frost & Flyers Reach Agreement On New Bridge Deal

One of the last remaining handful of restricted free agents in the NHL this summer, Morgan Frost, is signing a two-year deal with the Philadelphia Flyers, according to NHL Insider Elliotte Friedman.

Reports have the two-year contract worth $2.1M AAV.

The 24-year-old Frost was a first-round selection of the Flyers in the 2017 NHL Entry Draft, and had a breakthrough season this past year, with 19 goals, 27 assists and 46 points in 81 games, eclipsing his previous high by 30 points. 

That output came after Frost got caught in the crosshairs of head coach John Tortorella after scoring just three goals in the first 27 games of the season. The 4th-year center soared up the team's ranks as the season went on, however, increasing his TOI from 13 minutes in October to over 18 minutes by April, while scoring 8 goals with 17 points in the final 21 games of the campaign.

With his new deal done, he'll have arbitration rights at the conclusion of the contract in 2025 and his qualifying offer at that time will be $2.4M.
