The Flyers have already begun to tidy up their summer workload with some early signings.
Late Wednesday, forwards Zac Rinaldo and Jay Rosehill were each given two-year contract extensions.
Rinaldo, who would have been a restricted free agent, signed a deal worth $1.50 million with an average annual value of $750,000 against the salary cap.
Rosehill, an enforcer who would have been unrestricted in July, has a $1.35 million contract with an AAV of $675,000.
Rinaldo appeared in 32 games for the Flyers this season, posting three goals and five points to go along with 85 penalty minutes.

The 22-year-old went down with a high-ankle sprain on his left leg in a 5-3 win over Montreal on April 3. He is expected to miss the remainder of the season.

“I’m just really honored to be part of the organization for another two years,” Rinaldo said. “I’m really pleased where I am right now and ready to fulfill my next two years.”
Rinaldo said his ankle is improving but he’s still not ready to skate.

Rosehill was acquired by the Flyers on April 1 in the trade that sent Harry Zolnierczyk to the Anaheim Ducks.

The 27-year-old has played in seven games since joining the orange and black, collecting one goal and 47 penalty minutes.
