FLYERS GENERAL manager Paul Holmgren locked up two of his own on Wednesday, inking forwards Zac Rinaldo and Jay Rosehill to 2-year contract extensions. Rinaldo, 22, was due to become a restricted free agent in July. Though he's on the shelf for the season with a high ankle sprain, Rinaldo was consistently reliable-and responsible-as a pest for opponents. Rinaldo led the NHL in hits per 60 minutes (14.64) with 143 checks in just 258:06. "I'm just really honored to be a part of the organization for another 2 years," Rinaldo said.

Flyers fourth-line winger Zac Rinaldo, caught off guard by the offer, signed a two-year contract extension Tuesday. "I'm surprised we'd even started to talk about it so early, but I'm thrilled," said Rinaldo, who added: "This definitely gives me a lot of confidence. " Rinaldo, 24, had two goals, two assists and 153 penalty minutes in 67 games last season, his third with the Flyers. He will earn $750,000 this season, and reportedly will be paid a total of $1.7 million over the next two years.

BUFFALO - Feisty Flyers winger Zac Rinaldo was accidentally cut by the skate of Buffalo's Robyn Regehr during a first-period collision Sunday and had 20 stitches administered above his right knee. "It's hockey; it happens," said Rinaldo, who did not return in the Flyers' 5-2 loss to Buffalo. "We just collided funny, and I guess his skate was still in the air when my leg was there. " Rinaldo's status for Tuesday's game in New Jersey is questionable. Based on his bad limp after the game, it wouldn't be surprising if Tom Sestito took his fourth-line spot against the Devils.

SEPTEMBER. That's the toughest time to make the Flyers, forward Ryan White was saying the other day. White, 27, has nearly 200 NHL games under his belt, but has only cracked an opening roster once in his career. At this level, it doesn't matter how many games you played in the previous season. Nick Cousins is now learning that lesson. Cousins watched Jason Akeson skate in all seven of the Flyers' Stanley Cup playoff games last spring. Akeson lasted just 12 quiet games this season before being shuttled back to the AHL. He isn't alone.

ANAHEIM - Zac Rinaldo is close to returning to the Flyers' lineup. Rinaldo skated in his third full practice of the last week yesterday and joined the Flyers on their flight to California. To make room for Rinaldo on the 23-man roster, the Flyers waived forward Chris VandeVelde. VandeVelde and Michael Raffl are the only players on the Flyers' roster on two-way contracts. VandeVelde lasted long enough with the Flyers to require waivers to be sent back down to AHL Adirondack.

Zac Rinaldo scored his first goal of the season Wednesday in the Flyers' 3-1 win over Montreal, but the feisty winger also suffered a left high-ankle sprain. He will miss about six weeks, the club announced Thursday. Rinaldo, who has been seeing time on the penalty-killing unit lately, notched the first game-winning goal of his career on Wednesday. General manager Paul Holmgren said the injury did not occur during Rinaldo's second-period fight with Montreal's Brandon Prust. The Flyers, who are also without winger Matt Read (concussion)

VANCOUVER - Riding an impressive 5-1-1 record in their last seven games, there are a lot of reasons for the Flyers to be smiling. Even more so yesterday, in one of the most beautiful corners of the world, as the Flyers completed a brisk, midday practice at Rogers Centre that allowed plenty of time for rest before tonight's test against the Canucks. It also featured a showdown months in the making. That's how long Jake Voracek and Zac Rinaldo have been chirping to each other about who is the faster skater.

SUNRISE, Fla. - Flyers winger Zac Rinaldo received a four-game suspension from the NHL on Monday and will miss the rest of the regular season. Rinaldo was suspended for an illegal check to the head of Buffalo defenseman Chad Ruhwedel in the third period of a 5-2 victory Sunday at the Wells Fargo Center. "While we view the four-game suspension to Zac as harsh, we respect the league's decision," general manager Paul Holmgren said. With Rinaldo out of the lineup, coach Craig Berube will reinsert Steve Downie or Tye McGinn in Florida on Tuesday.

Flyers defenseman Nick Grossmann, injured Saturday in a 4-2 win over the New York Rangers, said he will find out Monday if he suffered a concussion. Grossmann was injured when a second-period shot by the Rangers' Rick Nash struck his left shoulder and head. He underwent testing and will be reevaluated Monday, when he will learn if he is cleared to play Tuesday against visiting Calgary. "It's too soon to tell," Grossmann said Sunday while he participated in the Flyers Wives Carnival at the Wells Fargo Center.

ONE YEAR ago today, Ed Snider and Paul Holmgren waltzed into the wood-paneled Hall of Fame room at Wells Fargo Center to announce the promotion of Ron Hextall to general manager. Three hundred and sixty-five days later, what have we learned? There has been the bizarre, like last month, when Hextall left head coach and friend Craig Berube dangling for two days before finally cutting him down. There has been the bungled, like on Feb. 26, when the Flyers skated by the $69 million salary cap with just $48,000 to spare, forcing Steve Mason into the lineup and eventually into the net in Toronto after 60 percent of the meniscus in his right knee was removed 16 days earlier.

Ron Hextall and Craig Berube were Flyers teammates for five seasons. For the most part, they have been organization lifers. Hextall, the club's first-year general manager, says that doesn't make it more difficult to make a decision on retaining or dismissing Berube, who has been the Flyers coach for nearly two seasons. Human nature says otherwise. Hextall said Wednesday he was still mulling whether to bring back Berube for the final year of his contract. The longer he waits, the longer he allows Berube to twist in the wind.

THE VIDEO tribute began to roll during the final television timeout yesterday and as soon as Paul Devorski's name flashed on the big screen, boos rained down from all corners of Wells Fargo Center. Devorski was just glad the video didn't play earlier in the third period with fans still hot and bothered after Jake Voracek's 10-minute misconduct. "They said it was coming and they were going to do it right at the start of the third," Devorski said. "The fans were kind of restless right then, so they held off until near the end. It worked out pretty good.

CHIP KELLY is dismissed after the end of a 2016 season that saw quarterback Tim Tebow pilot the Eagles to a 2-14 season. It's the team's worst record in decades, but Kelly's offense sets a record for shortest time between plays, aided by the fact that it's easier to huddle after a 5-yard loss. The last straw for Eagles fans: the spectacle of Nick Foles leading St. Louis to a Super Bowl victory. Foles, clutching the Vince Lombardi Trophy, said he was going to Disney World, seemed to actually mean it, and thanked Kelly, former Eagles GM and coach, for giving him the freedom to go to a team that tailored an offense to his abilities.

'THEY HAVEN'T produced this year like we wanted them to, for sure," Craig Berube was saying on Monday, referring to Brayden Schenn and Sean Couturier. "Brayden ended up being a 20-goal scorer last year. We all thought that it was, not a given, but we thought that he'd be at 20 again. I thought Couturier would probably get to 20 this year, too. And they haven't. " Put aside the mess Berube made with Steve Mason for a minute. Forget the unnecessary controversy that was stirred up in the year the Flyers finally got consistent goaltending.

It's easy to feel sorry for onetime superstar Vinny Lecavalier, the classy 34-year-old Flyers forward who is finishing the most disappointing season of his 16-year career. Oh, he is being well-compensated, but when you have made as much money as Lecavalier, pride trumps dollars. And make no mistake, Lecavalier's pride has taken a major hit with the way coach Craig Berube has used him. That is, when he hasn't been a healthy scratch. Despite the embarrassment of being benched 17 times on an offensively challenged team, Lecavalier, who turns 35 next month, isn't considering retirement.

EDMONTON, Alberta _ The Flyers, playing without ill goalie Steve Mason, hit rock-bottom on Saturday night at Rexall Place. They lost to the awful Oilers in overtime, 5-4, and dropped their ninth straight road game, equaling their second-longest streak since they lost 10 in a row in 1991-92 (0-8-2). The Flyers, who also lost nine consecutive road games earlier in the season, fell to 0-6-3 in their last nine games against teams that were not in a playoff spot when they met. Stop the season, the Flyers want to get off. Ryan-Nugent Hopkins scored on a juicy rebound allowed by Ray Emery with 2 minutes, 14 seconds left in overtime.

CALGARY, Alberta - The Flyers lost another road game Tuesday, but center Nick Cousins couldn't be blamed. Making his NHL debut, Cousins played a solid two-way game as the Flyers fell to Vancouver, 4-1, and suffered their seventh consecutive road defeat. In 10 minutes, 4 seconds of action, Cousins had one shot and won 5 of 6 faceoffs, and nearly gave the Flyers a 2-0 second-period lead, getting denied by goalie Eddie Lack's impressive glove save. "I thought he was very good," coach Craig Berube said of Cousins.

CALGARY, Alberta - For most, the biggest item on the Flyers' wish list this summer is a stud left winger to skate alongside Claude Giroux and Jake Voracek. Ron Hextall joked last week no one was going to wave a magic wand and say, "OK, here's a 25-year-old Brett Hull, thank you very much. " No, that will not happen. But what if the Flyers already have a suitable first-line left winger who can bury goals from the feathery passes off the sticks of the team's two stars? His name is Michael Raffl.
