The Philadelphia Flyers' goal is to sign Wayne Simmonds, a pending unrestricted free agent, to a contract extension, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.

"We'd like to sign [Simmonds]," general manager Ron Hextall told the paper Sunday. "Whether we can or not, I don't have the answer to that."

The 29-year-old forward is entering the final season of a six-year, $23.82 million contract he signed Aug. 16, 2012. He can become an unrestricted free agent July 1, 2019.

Simmonds had 46 points (24 goals, 22 assists) in 75 games last season playing on a torn pelvis he had surgically repaired after the Flyers lost to the Pittsburgh Penguins in the Eastern Conference First Round. He also missed seven games after tearing a ligament in his thumb on Feb. 18.
