Flyers sign Nate Thompson to one-year contract



Nate Thompson Flyers

Nate Thompson is back in Orange and Black. The Philadelphia Flyers signed the veteran forward to a one-year, $800,000 deal.

Thompson turns 37 in October and gives the Flyers a depth center option to battle it out with the internal candidates. The veteran forward was previously acquired by the Flyers at the 2020 trade deadline. He played seven regular-season games and 16 playoff games with the Flyers.

Thompson signed a one-year deal with the Winnipeg Jets last offseason. He recorded five points (two goals, three assists) in 44 games.

Hopefully, Thompson is nothing more than a 13th or 14th forward for the Flyers. He was well-liked during his time in Philadelphia, but he didn’t help much on the ice.

The Flyers may be done making signings now after bringing in Keith Yandle, Martin Jones and Thompson. Thompson’s cap hit is low, as is Yandle’s, while Jones’ is at $2 million. They still need to sign restricted free agents Carter Hart and Travis Sanheim.

More to come…
