Flyers sign Samuel Morin to a three-year entry-level contract (AAV $1.425m yr.)|PHI|home

The Philadelphia Flyers have signed 6-6, 211-lb defenseman Samuel Morin to a three-year, entry-level contract, according to general manager Paul Holmgren.

Morin, 18 (7/12/1995), was drafted by the Flyers in the first round (11th overall) of the 2013 NHL Entry Draft. Since joining the team, Morin participated in the team’s summer prospect camp and the rookie camp earlier this month before main training camp opened.

Morin, 18, has really impressed the Flyers with his work ethic throughout the summer months, his willingness to learn and improve and his desire to reach his potential sooner rather than later.

He lived for part of the summer with Player Development Director Ian Laperriere, and Morin really won him over with his thirst for knowledge about the game.

“He’s getting better and better every day,” Laperriere said. “He wants to learn. He asks the right questions every day and we’re really happy with him. He knows who he is and what he can do and the sky’s the limit for a kid like that.”

In his first preseason game in the NHL, Morin played 23:14, played in all situations, and had a beauty of an assist on a goal by Vinny Lecavalier.

Morin’s contract is for three years and has performance bonuses that, if triggered, can bring his average annual value to $1.425 million.

Morin, the 11th overall pick in the 2013 draft, puts the Flyers at 51 contracts entering the 2013-14 season.

However, Morin’s contract is eligible to slide, or not count against the Flyers 50 contract limit, if he is returned to his junior team in Rimouski in the QMJHL.
