Flyers sign Kalinski to contract extension

Posted: July 20, 2011

The Flyers have signed center John Kalinski to a 1-year contract extension and officially announced two other moves that previously were reported.

Kalinski, 24, appeared in 22 games for the Flyers last season, with a goal and four assists. He was a sixth-round choice in the 2007 NHL entry draft. Over parts of four seasons with the Flyers' AHL affiliate, he has posted 26 goals and 45 assists in 193 games.

The Flyers also announced the signings of free-agent goalie Jason Bacashihua and center Marcel Noebels, their fourth-round pick last month.

Bacashihua, a 2001 first-round pick by Dallas, agreed to a 1-year deal worth the minimum $525,000 in the NHL and $125,000 in the minors.

While Bacashihua, 28, has 38 games of NHL experience, he is a longshot to see any time in a Flyers uniform with four goalies ahead of him on the depth chart.

Noebels, 19, played last season for the Seattle Thunderbirds of the Western Hockey League, where he posted 54 points (28 goals, 26 assists) in 66 games.
