On what is expected to be a busy NHL draft day, the Flyers checked one offseason item off their checklist.

The Flyers are expected to re-sign defenseman Samuel Morin to a three-year contract, according toA Marc Antoine Godin of The Athletic.

Morin will miss most of the 2018-19 season because of a torn ACL in his right knee. He suffered the injury during the Phantomsa€™ five-overtime playoff game against the Charlotte Checkers on May 9. Hea€™s likely out until February.

Because Morin signed his entry-level contract five years ago as an 18-year-old, hea€™s no longer waiver exempt. He would have been a restricted free agent.

Morin, a hulking 6-foot-7 defenseman, was the Flyersa€™ first-round pick (11th overall) in 2013. He failed to make the Flyers last season despite a strong training camp and preseason.
