Sami Kapanen to stay in Philly

The Phildelphia Flyers have signed Sami Kapanen to a 2-year contract extension. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

“I am very happy to stay here,” said Kapanen. “It’s something that we were able to get done in a short period of time. I believe that this team is rebuilding in the right direction and we will be back contending next year. My family loves it here, so it was an easy decision to stay here.”

Kapanen, 33, has recorded seven goals and seven assists for 14 points and 14 penalty minutes in 51 games for the Flyers this season.
