Nolan Patrick accepted his qualifying offer, signing a one-year deal worth $874K.
The Flyers have signed Erik Gustafsson to a one-year deal worth $3.0 million.
The Flyers have signed Zayde Wisdom to a three-year, entry-level contract.
The Flyers have signed Justin Braun to a two-year contract worth $3.6 million ($1.8M AAV).
The Flyers were likely going to let Braun walk in free agency but with the surprising news that Matt Niskanen is retiring, they got to work on re-signing Braun. The 33-year-old scored three goals with 16 assists (19 points) in 62 games while ranking third among Flyers' defensemen in hits (91) and tied for second in blocked shots (84).
The Flyers have signed Brian Elliott to a one-year, $1.5 million contract extension.
Elliott was set to become an unrestricted free agent on October 9th but gets another one-year deal from the Flyers that retains him as Carter Hart's backup for at least another season. Elliott's cap-hit goes from $2.0M AAV to $1.5M AAV, leaving Philadelphia with roughly $4.8M in cap space (per PuckPedia). That's plenty to re-sign their only RFA Philippe Myers but doesn't leave them with much to spend to upgrade their roster in free agency.
The Flyers have signed Robert Hagg to a two-year, $3.2 million ($1.6M AAV) contract extension.
Hagg appeared in 49 games with the Flyers in 2020, scoring three goals with 10 assists (13 points). The 25-year-old led the Flyers in hits (136) and was tied for fourth in blocked shots (79). Hagg will likely be the Flyers No.6 defenseman in 2021.
Chris Stewart has announced his retirement from the NHL.
Stewart was the No.18 overall pick back in 2006. The 6-foot-2, 242 lbs. winger played 11 years with the Avalanche, Blues, Sabres, Wild, Ducks, Flames and Flyers and totalled 160 goals and 162 assists (322 points) in 668 games.
The Flyers have signed Alex Lyon to a one-year, $700k contract extension.
Lyon spent most of 2020 in the AHL going 11-14-5 with a 2.69 GAA and .913 SV%. With Brian Elliott set to become a UFA, it looks like the Flyers plan to have Lyon as Carter Hart's backup in 2021. The 27-year-old is 5-4-1 with a 3.15 GAA and .893 SV% in 16 career NHL games.
The Flyers have signed Nicolas Aube-Kubel to a two-year, $2.15 million ($1.075 million AAV) contract extension.

Couturier is not on the ice for warmups; will not play in Game 6.
Couturier is questionable for Game 6 vs. the Islanders.
Couturier was hurt in a collision with Mathew Barzal late in the second period and did not return for the third. Head coach Alain Vigneault did not have an update on Couturier's status on Wednesday but said that he was "still being evaluated." Consider Couturier a game-time decision for Game 6.
