The Philadelphia Flyers have signed 6’0’’, 205-pound left wing Dan Carcillo to a one-year contract, according to club General Manager Paul Holmgren. Per club policy, financial terms were not disclosed.
“We are happy to have Dan under contract for the 2010-11 season,” said Holmgren.
Carcillo, 25, recorded 22 points (12G,10A) and 207 penalty minutes in 76 regular season games with the Flyers this past season. He led the team in hits (194) and his 207 penalty minutes also led the Flyers and ranked fourth in the NHL. He also became the first player, alongside Boston Bruins’ forward Shawn Thornton, to be assessed a fighting major in the NHL’s Winter Classic, on Jan. 1, 2010.
In the 2010 Stanley Cup Playoffs, he recorded six points (2G,4A) and 34 penalty minutes in 17 games to help lead the Flyers to the Stanley Cup Final, and scored the game-winning goal in overtime to give the Flyers a 3-2 win in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals vs. New Jersey on Apr. 18.
