The Flyers have signed Alex Lyon to a two-year deal worth $1.5M ($750K AAV).
Lyon split the 2018 season between Philadelphia (NHL) and Lehigh Valley (AHL). During his 11 games in the AHL, he went 6-5-0 with a 1.98 GAA and .944 SV% while going 4-2-1 with a 2.75 GAA and .905 SV% in 11 games for the Flyers. Injuries to Brian Elliott and/or Michal Neuvirth are the only way that Lyon will find himself back in the NHL in 2019.
The Flyers have signed Christian Folin to a one-year contract.
The Flyers have signed James van Riemsdyk to a five-year, $35M ($7.0M AAV) contract.
van Riemsdyk was originally selected No.2 overall by the Flyers in 2007 and spent the first three years of his career in Philadelphia. van Riemsdyk has been one of the most consistent producers in the NHL in recent years, averaging 31 goals and 28 assists (59 points) per 82 games over the last five seasons. JVR is expected to skate on the Flyers’ second line with Nolan Patrick and Jakub Voracek.
The Flyers have signed Samuel Morin to a three-year extension worth $2.1M ($700K AAV).
The Flyers select Jay O'Brien with the No.19 overall pick.
The Flyers select Joel Farabee with the No.14 overall pick.
Farabee is known as a high-character 200-foot player. He served as the captain of the U.S. National U-18 team and scored 33 goals with 43 assists (76 points) in 62 games while playing on a line with Oliver Wahlstrom and projected 2019 No.1 overall pick Jack Hughes. Farabee creates offence with his great speed and compares favourably to Blues’ forward Brayden Schenn.

Elliott stopped all 17 shots that he faced in the Flyers shutout win over the Rangers in the Flyers’ season finale. It was a much better outing than his return to the crease last Thursday. As long as he is healthy, Elliott will be in net for the Flyers. He was 0-1-1 with a 5.31 GAA and .864 SV% in his only two starts against the Penguins this season.

The Flyers have recalled Alex Lyon from Lehigh Valley (AHL).
Lyon went back to the AHL with Michal Neuvirth returning to the crease on Thursday. Neuvirth was re-injured almost immediately, so Lyon returns to backup Petr Mrazek.
