PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Flyers on Thursday agreed to terms with
right wing Wayne Simmonds on a multi-year contract extension.

Simmonds, 22, was acquired from Los Angeles on June 23, along with center Brayden Schenn and a draft pick, in exchange for center Mike Richards.

In 80 games with the Kings last season, he had 14 goals and 30 points.

Simmonds, a Los Angeles second-round draft pick in 2007, appeared in 240 games for the Kings over three seasons.

He has career totals of 39 goals, 93 points and 264 penalties in minutes.
