Flyers Extend Betts

The Philadelphia Flyers have signed forward Blair Betts to a 2 year contract extension.  The deal is worth about 1.4 million and Betts will earn $700K per year.  This is a great move for the Orange and Black.  Betts is quite arguably the Flyers’ best penalty killer.  He does his job on the penalty kill.  The Flyers kill 80.9% of their penalties and Betts is a very big part of that.  Betts was signed as a free agent after playing for the New York Rangers last season.  He was simply signed on a tryout contract and had to prove himself in the preseason.  Betts did very well and has made his way onto the team.  This is a sign that good things do actually come to those who work hard.
