The Flyers signed left wing Zac Rinaldo to a 2-year contract extension, the team announced Tuesday.

Rinaldo, 24, a 5-11, 185-pounder, will be entering his fourth NHL season. He had two goals, two assists and 153 penalty minutes in 67 games last season. The 24-year-old was a sixth-round pick (178th overall) by the Flyers in the 2008 draft. He is a native of Mississauga, Ontario.

“Philadelphia is where I started my NHL career and this is where I want to be so I am really happy,” Rinaldo said in a release. “This definitely gives me a lot of confidence by the Flyers showing that they have confidence in me. I know they want to see me get better as a player, and this is the place to do it.”
