Marc-Andre Bourdon signed to a contract extension; Scott Laughton signed to an ELC

I didn't see a thread that had this yet.

Philadelphia Flyers ‏@NHLFlyers
NEWS: #Flyers signed 2012 1st rd pick Scott Laughton to entry-level contract & re-signed D Marc-Andre Bourdon to a multi-year extension.

Mod edit:

Flyers' official release:

http://flyers.nhl.com

Quote:
The Philadelphia Flyers announced today that they have re-signed defenseman Marc-Andre Bourdon to a multi-year contract extension and have signed center Scott Laughton to an entry-level contract, according to General Manager Paul Holmgren.

Bourdon, 22 (9-17-89), was selected by the Flyers in the third round (67th overall) of the 2008 NHL Entry Draft. He made his NHL debut with the Flyers in 2011-12 and went on to play in 45 games, contributing four goals and three assists for seven points along with a plus-4 rating.

Bourdon has spent parts of the past three seasons with the Flyers’ American Hockey League affiliate, the Adirondack Phantoms, where he had four goals and 29 assists for 33 points, along with 168 PIM, over the course of 125 games.

Laughton, 18 (5-30-94), was the Flyers’ first-round selection (20th overall) in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft.

From Tim P. at CSNPhilly:

Bourdon's deal: 2 yrs, $1.225 million, source says - $612,500 AAV

source: Laughton EL deal is worth $925,000 per w/performance bonus of $212,500
Per NHL.com and the CBA:

Players who sign their first contract at age 18-21 are required to sign three-year Entry Level contracts
From Bill Meltzer via HockeyBuzz:

http://www.hockeybuzz.com/blog/Bill-...Robak/45/46004

Quote:
The new contract pays Bourdon $612,500 per season. Some have said the the new deal represents a paycut for Bourdon but that's not true. It's a lower cap hit and a lower NHL base salary but the player will be still be taking home considerably more money than he did in his entry-level contract. Here's why:

Under the terms of Bourdon's entry-level contract, the player carried an $875,000 cap hit at the NHL level for three seasons. However, that was not Bourdon's actual salary.

The player was on a two-way contract. He received a signing bonus delivered in three annual installments of $87,500. In terms of base salary, he received $65,000 per season in the AHL, where Bourdon spent the first two-plus seasons of his pro career.

In 2011-12, he got his first NHL call-up and spent two stints (Nov. 21 to Feb. 19, March 27 through the end of the season) with the big club. For these portions of the season, he received a prorated distribution of a full-season $762,500 NHL salary. For the portions of the season MAB spent on the Phantoms roster (October, most of November, 10 days in February, most of March), he received a prorated $65,000.

So stoked about Bourdon. He's quickly becoming one of my favorite Flyers. Big hits, good fighting ability, still has a bit of offense in him. To think he was considered a bust as early as last year.

Glad on both fronts assuming the numbers for MAB are reasonable.

Im going to say MAB got a two year deal worth 1.95 million is my guess. If he got three years, which I dont think they would do, then 3 years 2.925 million.

Signing Laughton already indicates he will get a long look in training camp...

Another RFA saved from the 29 NHL GMs who were surely trying to offersheet him to teach Homer a lesson.

Happy to see Laughton locked up. Happy for Bourdon as well. When he was healthy he was impressive. Has a nice blend of offense and physicality in him.

Yea I can't recall but aside from Couturier the Flyers don't typically lock up their picks from this year to an ELC right away.

Excited about both.

I too am a tad worried about MAB's health.

So Bourdon signed for less than what he previously made?

That's what she said...

Yeah good point...I'm surprised all the other league GM's sitting in Bettman's dark room didn't throw an offersheet at Bourdon to teach Holmgren a lesson..

They're high on Laughton, it seems. Wouldn't be surprised to see him in a 9-game stint if he impresses in camp, but I doubt that happens. I'll wait and see what happens before hoping he sticks for the season.

Bourdon signed for less because it is presumably 1 way deal. The guaranteed 612k, even if he ends up in the AHL (unlikely because he is no longer waiver exempt), is worth it for him.

I can't believe it either. But maybe Homer guaranteed him a spot in the lineup if he would sign for cheap - who knows what the inofficial deal is all about.

Hmm apparently it is two way.

He must have gotten a SIGNIFICANT AHL salary raise in order to take less at the NHL level.

This is the most likely reason Bourdon took less money. NHL contact gets NHL pay anywhere.

Now people are saying two way lol. I haven't seen this but it's interesting if true.

Injury concerns reason why MAB signed for less.

I disagree. There is barely room for less. The guy established himself as a legitimate 3rd pairing candidate. Everyone had him penciled in for a raise.

I'd be shocked if we don't see him with a very significant AHL salary raise, in exchange for the lower NHL cap hit. It provides him with security.
