The Philadelphia Flyers announced today that they
have re-signed defenseman Marc-Andre Bourdon to
a multi-year contract extension and have signed
center Scott Laughton to an entry-level contract,
according to General Manager Paul Holmgren.
Bourdon, 22 (9-17-89), was selected by the Flyers
in the third round (67th overall) of the 2008
NHL Entry Draft. He made his NHL debut with the
Flyers in 2011-12 and went on to play in 45 games,
contributing four goals and three assists for
seven points along with a plus-4 rating.
Bourdon has spent the past three seasons with
the Flyers’ American Hockey League affiliate,
the Adirondack Phantoms, where he had four goals
and 29 assists for 33 points, along with 168 PIM,
over the course of 125 games.
He was a third-round selection of the Flyers
in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft. The St. Hyacinthe,
Quebec native played in just 18 games with the
Phantoms last year while spending the majority
of the season in Philadelphia. He scored one goal
and three assists with Adirondack in 2011-12.
Laughton, 18 (5-30-94), was the Flyers’
first-round selection (20thoverall) in the 2012
NHL Entry Draft. He has played the past two seasons
for the Oshawa Generals of the Ontario Hockey
League, where he scored 33 goals and added 43
assists for 76 points in 127 games. In 2011-12,
Laughton had 53 points over 64 games, but scored
41 of those points (18G, 23A) over the final 39
games of the season.
He ranked third on the team with 101 PIM and also
added five points (2G-3A) in six games during
the OHL Playoffs.
