Flyers sign Hagg to two-year, $2.3-million contract

Robert Hagg

Defenseman Robert Hagg was the last significant Flyer without a contract, until Wednesday that is.

     Hagg, 23, agreed to a two-year deal worth $2.3 million.
     The Swede enjoyed a fine rookie season, finishing among all freshmen leaders in blocked shots and hits (the actual leader with 238 hits and seventh overall among all players).
     The $1.15 million per year agreement is slightly above the $875,000 qualifying offer originally made by the Flyers.
     With this signing, the Flyers should have about $10 million remaining in salary cap space heading into next season.
     Hagg, a native of Sweden, registered nine points in 70 games and was a plus-5. He appeared in two games against Pittsburgh in the Stanley Cup playoffs and was a plus-1.
     Prior to joining the Flyers full-time in 2017-18, Hagg spent parts of four seasons with the Flyers’ AHL affiliate the Lehigh Valley Phantoms.
     Hagg was a second-round pick (41stoverall) in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft.
