Nolan Patrick inks entry-level contract with Flyers

The Philadelphia Flyers have signed their top draft choice - Winnipegger Nolan Patrick.

A native of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Patrick was initially expected to go first overall in the 2017 draft class, but an injury-riddled draft-eligible season and a breakout year for eventual first overall pick Nico Hischier resulted in Patrick's drop to the Flyers.

Despite only playing in 33 games for the Brandon Wheat Kings of the WHL last season, he still showed what he was made of. That's an impressive 1.39 points per game from Patrick in the WHL.

The deal is for three years and $2.775 million, with an annual salary-cap hit of $925,000, according to CapFriendly.com. The Flyers had luck on their side when they claimed the second overall pick out of the lottery. He was able to put up 20 goals and 46 points in just 33 regular-season games, well in keeping with his 102 points in 72 games the year prior to gaining league-wide attention.

Patrick had yet another surgery, which is said to be a minor one, on his abdomen after the NHL Entry Draft.

Patrick missed the on-ice portions of the recent Flyers development camp after undergoing abdominal surgery on his own in early June, but he's expected to be fully fit well ahead of training camp.
