The Flyers have signed restricted free agent forward Ben Holmstrom to a one-year, $550,000 contract according to CapGeek.com. It's a two-way contract that pays Holmstrom $105,000 in AHL salary.

Holmstrom, 25, played five games with the Flyers as an injury call-up last season. In 67 games with the Adirondack Phantoms, Holmstrom scored 15 goals and 26 assists while compiling 134 penalty minutes. He was named Phantoms captain prior to last season and is a solid depth forward at the NHL level.

The Colorado Spring, Colo. native is coming off his two-year entry level contract, signed with the organization in 2010. Holmstrom played at UMass-Lowell for four seasons before joining the organization.
