The Philadelphia Flyers signed forward Joel Farabee to a six-year, $30 million contract extension Thursday.

He led the Flyers last season with 20 goals and added 18 assists. He became the second-youngest player, following Eric Lindros, to lead the franchise in goals for a season.

In 107 career regular-season games, Farabee has 59 points (28 goals, 31 assists). In 12 playoff games, he has five points (three goals, two assists).
