Contract negotiations aimed at re-signing Flyers forward Jeff Carter have taken an upswing after weeks of slow but determined negotiations.
"You know me, I don’t say much, but I will acknowledge that I’ve had some conversations with Paul and we’re making progress," agent Rick Curran told CSNPhilly.com on Wednesday.
"For the moment, that’s probably all I’m going to say. I don’t like to discuss negotiations."
The Flyers, who often re-negotiate in-season with key personnel, would like to have Carter re-signed before he becomes a restricted free agent on July 1.
