PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Flyers re-signed defenseman Marc-Andre Bourdon to a multi-year contract extension on Wednesday, and agreed with center Scott Laughton on an entry-level contract.
The news comes a day after Philadelphia's defense took another hit, when Andrej Meszaros underwent surgery to repair a torn Achilles tendon. Meszaros is out indefinitely.
Bourdon, 22, was selected by the Flyers in the 2008 third round. He made his NHL debut with the Flyers last season, posting four goals and seven points. He finished with a plus-4 rating.
Laughton, 18, was the Flyers' first-round selection in June. He has played the past two seasons for the Oshawa Generals of the Ontario Hockey League, where he had 33 goals and 76 points in 127 games.
