The Philadelphia Flyers have had a busy morning, announcing new one-year contracts for bothA Taylor LeierA andA Tyrell GoulbourneA and confirming the signing ofA Danick Martel, also to a one-year deal which had beenA previously reported.A While Martel simply accepted his qualifying offer, the other two contracts were negotiated. No salary terms were revealed by the team, but CapFriendlyA reportsA that Leier will make $720K on a one-way deal, while Goulbourne will likely play on a two-way deal similar to Martela€™s.

Leiera€™s contract is interesting for many reasons. The first, and most pressing, is that it negates an August 3rdA arbitration hearing date. Leier had filed for salary arbitration after spending the entire 2017-18 season in Philadelphia. While Leier only played in 39 games, it is easy to see why he might not be agreeable to a two-way deal after avoiding the AHL for an entire campaign. However, Leiera€™s qualifying offer was of a two-way nature. Rather than agree to that deal, the two sides worked out a contract that actually comes in below the qualifying offer value, but with a one-way status. Leier, 24, collected five points last season and will be looking to improve his production in the coming season.
