QMJHL defenseman says he signs with Flyers 5/30

One item of note to pass along from this evening. Baie-Comeau (QMJHL) defenseman Maxim Lamarche Tweeted on Thursday that he has signed his first pro contract with the Philadelphia Flyers.

The Flyers have yet to formally announce the signing. In fact, CSN Philly reported they denied it. But Mikael Lalancette of TVA Sports reported that Lamarche agreed to a two-way deal with the Flyers. 

If Lamarche did sign with the Flyers, he could be headed to the Phantoms. Undrafted, the 20-year-old Lamarche produced 9-34-43 in 55 games  and was a plus-30 with the Drakkar in his overage season. All of those were career highs, but that isn't unheard of when you're talking about overage players.

He was also teammates with Petr Straka, the high-scoring Czech winger who the Flyers signed in April. The former Blue Jackets second-round pick netted 41-41-82 in 55 games with Baie-Comeau.

That’s the real news here! We finally can relax about the 50 contract rule, after being near the limit for the past few years. To see more info please visit
