Zac Rinaldo C PHI 2 Months

Rinaldo agreed to a two-year, $1.7 million extension with the Flyers on Tuesday.

Because Rinaldo previously agreed to a two-year deal with the Flyers last April, the extension will keep him on the books through the next three seasons. He proved to be a key cog on the Flyers' checking line in 2013-14, totaling 231 hits and 153 penalty minutes while averaging just 7:41 per ice time. He's shown little scoring acumen during his time in Philadelphia, but few players in the NHL offer more physicality at the forward spot.

Zac Rinaldo will return from his ankle injury Thursday.

He will play alongside Michael Raffl and Adam Hall against Anaheim. "It's been too long -- three weeks is too long for me," said Rinaldo, who was originally supposed to be out for six weeks. "I [was] going to do everything I can to do more to get back as soon as I can, and I did. I'm a little nervous being out of the lineup 10 games. Maybe that is good, I don't know. I bring a little more energy when I'm nervous." He has two points and 101 penalty minutes in 44 games this year.
