Flyers Sign D Prospect Robert Hagg

Bill Meltzer confirmed a report that the Flyers have signed a one-year entry level contract with Swedish defenseman Robert Hagg.

Hagg will join the Adirondack Pantoms for the remainder of the season, and his contract will start next season. Hagg is considered by many as one of the top prospects in Philadelphia's system, and arguably the best defenseman.

Hagg, 19, was picked by the Flyers in the second round (41st overall) of the 2013 NHL Draft, which many experts felt was a steal.

In 50 games with Modo in the Swedish League, he has one goal and five assists.
