The Flyers signed forward Dan Carcillo today to a 1-year contract, according to general manager Paul Holmgren. Carcillo will earn $1.075 million in 2010-11.

“We are happy to have Dan under contract for the 2010-11 season,” Holmgren said in a statement about the 6-foot, 205-pound left winger.

Carcillo's signing puts the Flyers approximately $2.497 million over the league's $59.4 million salary cap. Holmgren will have until the regular season begins on Oct. 7 to pare the roster back down to fit the cap.

Carcillo, 25, had 12 goals, 10 assists and a team-high 207 penalty minutes in 76 regular-season games this past season. He led the team in hits with 194. He also became the first player, alongside Boston Bruins’ forward Shawn Thornton, to be assessed a fighting major in the NHL’s Winter Classic, on Jan. 1, 2010.

Carcillo originally filed for salary arbitration last week before agreeing to this deal.
