Flyers sign first-round pick Tyson Foerster to three-year, entry-level deal

  Flyers sign first-round pick Tyson Foerster to three-year, entry-level deal Foerster, 18, is a big, talented winger from the OHL who scored 36 goals in his second year of junior and earned himself a chance to join what has become a strong prospect group in Philadelphia. He’ll head back to the Barrie Colts should the OHL ever get its season off the ground, but he is now officially part of the Flyers organization.The three-year contract will not kick in this season unless Foerster somehow makes the NHL team out of camp, and even then he would have to play in 10 games before losing his slide eligibility.

The Philadelphia Flyers have done some quick paperwork with their top draft selection, inking Tyson Foerster to a three-year, entry-level contract. Foerster was selected 23rd overall in last week’s draft and received some effusive praise from his general manager Chuck Fletcher:

"Tyson obviously has a lot of offensive gifts. He can shoot the puck tremendously well. Goal scorer. Playmaker. Great hockey sense. Really good size. He’s got a lot of attributes. I think the good thing about Tyson was very good with self-awareness, of his strengths and the areas that he needs to improve. He’s worked very hard on those areas during the pause. We expect he’ll continue to develop into a pretty good player."

Foerster, 18, is a big, talented winger from the OHL who scored 36 goals in his second year of junior and earned himself a chance to join what has become a strong prospect group in Philadelphia. He’ll head back to the Barrie Colts should the OHL ever get its season off the ground, but he is now officially part of the Flyers organization.

The three-year contract will not kick in this season unless Foerster somehow makes the NHL team out of camp, and even then he would have to play in 10 games before losing his slide eligibility. That’s very unlikely at this point, meaning this deal won’t actually expire in 2023, but rather 2024 or even 2025.

Philadelphia Eagles open to Zach Ertz trade?

  Philadelphia Eagles open to Zach Ertz trade? Even if Ertz has declined slightly, he would still generate plenty of interest before the NFL trade deadline. Teams such as the Buffalo Bills, New England Patriots, Arizona Cardinals and Green Bay Packers could all benefit from adding Ertz to their offense.The Eagles might have to settle for a mid-round pick in return, but it’s a better outcome than losing Ertz next offseason for nothing. It might also give him a chance to compete for a Super Bowl, which probably won’t happen this year in Philadelphia.Subscribe to Yardbarker's Morning Bark, the most comprehensive newsletter in sports.
