Dreger: Flyers Reach Four-Year Deal With Mark Streit
The Flyers have signed defenseman Mark Streit to a four-year contract according to TSN's Darren Dreger.
The deal is said to be worth $21 million, an AAV of $5.25 million. The deal also includes a partial no-trade clause, meaning Streit can submit a list of teams he would want to be traded to.
The Flyers acquired the rights to Streit last week for a 2014 4th round pick and Phantoms forward Shane Harper. Streit, 35, was going to be an unrestricted free agent come July 5 if the Flyers couldn't reach an agreement with him.
During the 2013 season, Streit scored six goals and added 21 assists in 45 games played for the New York Islanders. He was their captain.
With Streit looking to get that much money, the Flyers are sure to be cutting ties with goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov as well as winger Danny Briere. It could also mean another high contract could be on the move, with defenseman Andrej Meszaros being one of those options.
