Konecny signs entry-level deal with Flyers

Prior to development camp getting underway last week, the Flyers inked top pick Ivan Provorov to an entry-level deal. Just days after camp broke, the Flyers signed their other first-round pick.

Travis Konecny signed a three-year, entry-level contract with the Flyers on Thursday worth $925,000 per year.

The 18-year-old forward was selected with the 24th overall pick at the NHL Draft in June after scoring 29 goals and recording 68 points this past as captain Ottawa 67's of the OHL. Konecny will likely return to juniors after participating in Flyers training camp. 

In the season prior, Konecny was named OHL Rookie of the Year after posting 70 points for the 67's.

Konecny also received the first ever E.J. McGuire Award of Excellence, presented on Day 2 of the Draft. The award is given to the prospect who best displays a commitment to excellence through strength of character, competitiveness and athleticism.
