 “We are pleased to announce that we have agreed with Scott on a multiyear extension,” Holmgren said in a statement. “Scott has been a very good player for us over the last five seasons and we look forward to many more good years to come.”

 Said Hartnell: “I am very happy to be staying in Philly to continue my career playing in front of the best fans in the NHL. I would like to thank Mr. [Ed] Snider and the entire Flyers organization.”
