With arbitration looming, the Flyers and their restricted free agent forward have agreed on a new four-year contract.

About an hour or so after the Flyers and forward Brayden Schenn were scheduled to begin their arbitration hearing on Monday morning, the team announced that they had reached an agreement with the restricted free agent forward:

TSN’s Bobby McBoatface, who may or may not actually be named Bob McKenzie, has the terms:

About a week ago we looked at the projections for Schenn’s contract and found that the most likely range for a deal was between $4.5 million and $5.25 million per year on a deal that was likely to be at least four years in term. So this is on the high end of the salary range but the low end of the term range, but within our expected numbers in both aspects. The deal will keep Schenn here in Philadelphia through his age-28 season.

With this, it looks like the biggest remaining question of Ron Hextall’s summer has been answered. We’ll have more analysis of this deal soon.
