    Flyers resign Danick Martel

    By Jordan Hall | NBC Sports Philadelphia

    General manager Ron Hextall is starting to take care of his restricted free agents.

    The Flyers re-signed forward Danick Martel to a one-year, two-way contract worth $715,000, according to a report Thursday night by Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports.

    Earlier in the day, the Flyers re-signed RFA defenseman Reece Willcox (see story). Last Saturday, the Flyers avoided arbitration with goalie Alex Lyon, who inked a two-year deal (see story).

    The Flyers now have four restricted free agents left unsigned: Taylor Leier, Robert Hagg, Anthony Stolarz and Tyrell Goulbourne. Leier filed for arbitration last Thursday (see story).

    Martel, who earned $800,000 last season, made his NHL debut in 2017-18 and finished with no points over four games. The Flyers called up the 5-foot-8, 162-pounder in late November looking for a spark during their 10-game losing streak.

    He showed some flashes of his dynamic ability and registered six shots in limited ice time.

    "He's been a good player the last couple of years, but this year, he's clearly taken a step," Hextall said when the Flyers brought up Martel from AHL affiliate Lehigh Valley. "He's a dangerous player when he's on the ice. That's a good thing."

    The 23-year-old scored a career-high 25 goals last year in 59 regular-season games with the Phantoms, his third full AHL campaign. He also matched his personal best in points with 40 and was a plus-16 for the season.

    Martel, an undrafted product, will more than likely open the 2018-19 season with the Phantoms but is a sleeper given his versatility to play either the wing or center. He has a scoring pedigree, having put up 20 or more goals three times in the AHL while amassing 102 points (48 goals, 54 assists) his final junior season in 2014-15.

    I like this signing.

    He did an unreal job in the AHL, and had a nice little stint in the NHL.
    A quick energy guys that gets in to the tough spots to score. Pretty nimble
