Brandon Manning finally signs deal with Flyers

USA TODAY Sports

Brandon Manning has signed a one-year deal with the Flyers.

Restricted free agent Brandon Manning has finally signed a contract with the Flyers -- nearly two months after he officially became an RFA.

The Flyers announced the deal late Thursday but, as is their policy, terms were not disclosed. We do know that it's a one-year deal. Manning, a 23-year old-defenseman, has played 10 games for the Flyers including six last season.

We have him pegged as the Phantoms top defenseman heading into the 2013-14 season, a distinction he'll probably lose to somebody like Marc-Andre Bourdon once training camp ends. Manning represents the organization's 49th contract, of which they are allowed 50. Goalie Anthony Stolarz will come off that list thanks to the slide rule once the season starts, and unless Scott Laughton makes the team (a possibility), he'll come off as well.

Eric Wellwood remains the team's only unsigned RFA, a symptom of a nasty injury he suffered last year. He's reportedly signed an AHL contract in the meantime until he's healthy and can sign an NHL deal. The Flyers can't sign him to an NHL deal yet because since he's an injured player who cannot be demoted, they'd be required to keep him on the NHL roster.
