Oliver Lauridsen, the surprising seventh-round pick who ended up among the Flyers' starting six defensemen last season, agreed to a new contract on Wednesday.
 
The 24-year-old signed off on a two-year deal worth $1.2 million ($600,000 annual cap hit).
 
Lauridsen appeared in 15 games as a late-season call-up because of injuries, and had three points -- including two goals -- while playing a solid 15 minutes a night for the Flyers.
 
Born in Gentofte, Denmark, Lauridsen is a 2009 Flyers draft pick and represented the Danes at the 2013 IIHF World Championships last spring.
