The Flyers have signed Nicolas Aube-Kubel to a two-year, $2.15 million ($1.075 million AAV) contract extension.
Aube-Kubel will return to the Flyers lineup for Game 1 vs. the Islanders.
Aube-Kubel is expected to be a healthy scratch for Game 4.
Aube-Kubel has been recalled from Lehigh Valley (AHL) and is expected to play Sunday.
The Flyers have re-signed Nicolas Aube-Kubel to a one-year contract.
Aube-Kubel had 16 goals and 14 assists (30 points) in 54 AHL games and appeared in the first nine NHL games of his career with Philadelphia in 2019. The 23-year-old doesn’t have great size but can play a solid two-way game with some offensive flair for the bottom-6. He will likely start 2020 in the AHL but could be one of the Flyers first call-ups.
Aube-Kubel will make his season debut for the Flyers on Tuesday.
Aube-Kubel was recalled to provide a spark to the Flyers’ bottom-6 after they’ve lost three in a row. Aube-Kubel had seven points (3G / 4A) in eight games with Lehigh Valley (AHL) prior to his call-up and will make his NHL debut tonight.
