 PHILADELPHIA (AP) -The Philadelphia Flyers signed scoring leader Mike Richards to a 12-year contract extension Thursday
While the team didn't disclose financial terms, The Canadian Press reported the deal was for $69 million.
The 22-year-old forward has a career-high 14 goals this season and also has 20 assists. He's third in the NHL with three short-handed goals.
Richards' new contract will start next season and run through the 2019-20 season. The team announced the extension before its game Thursday night against Montreal.
``Mike has become an integral part of our core group and we are extremely happy to have him under contract long term,'' general manager Paul Holmgren said. ``We believe that he will continue to grow as a player and as a leader.''
The Flyers' first-round draft pick in 2003, Richards has 35 goals and 65 assists over three NHL seasons. He's making just over $940,000 this season.
``I am very happy to be part of the organization for hopefully the rest of my career,'' Richards said.
