Multiple reports: Flyers sign D Maxim Lamarche from Baie-Comeau Drakkar (QMJHL)

Canadian defenseman Maxim Lamarche tweeted late Thursday night that he was “very proud” to have signed his first pro contract with the Flyers.

The Flyers have not made an official announcement yet. Earlier in the day, the Flyers denied signing anyone.

Lamarche an overage junior.

The 20-year-old Lamarche played the last four years in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League for Baie-Commeau Drakkar.

He’s 6-foot-3, 218 pounds with a right-hand shot, something the Flyers covet these days. Lamarche had nine goals and 43 points in 55 games last season in the QMJHL, an improvement over the 25 points the season before.

TVA Sports first reported the signing on Wednesday, saying it is a two-way, entry-level contract.


When Adirondack Phantoms coach Terry Murray prepares for training camp, he’ll have some fresh faces on his blueline. Mark Alt, acquired from Carolina as part of the Brian Boucher trade, played only six games at the tail end of the season. Andreas Lilja will be gone and likely the same for Blake Kessel, who played only seven games this season.

Then there’s Maxim Lamarche, a 20-year-old defenseman the Flyers signed as a free agent according to MikaŽl Lalancette of TVA Sports in Montreal.

It’s a two-way deal for Lamarche, who spent the last four years in the QMJHL with Baie-Comeau Drakkar. The Laval, Quebec native had his best season this year with nine goals and 34 assists in 55 games. He was also the team’s assistant captain. His teammate there was Petr Straka, a right wing the Flyers signed in April.

The 6-foot-2, 192-pound blueliner represents the 42nd contract on the Flyers’ books for the 2013-14 season.
