The Philadelphia Flyers acquired defenseman Tony DeAngelo from the Carolina Hurricanes and signed him to a two-year, $10 million contract extension, Sportsnet reported on Friday.

Multiple media outlets reported the Flyers also receive a seventh-round pick in the 2022 NHL Draft. The Hurricanes, in turn, will secure a second-round selection in the 2024 draft, a third-round pick in 2023 and fourth-round selection in 2022.

DeAngelo, who is scheduled for restricted free agency, recorded 51 points (10 goals, 41 assists) in 64 games last season with Carolina.

It was the 26-year-old’s lone campaign with the Hurricanes, who signed him to a one-year, $1 million deal after the New York Rangers disowned him after six games in 2020-21 following a reported incident with goaltender Alexandar Georgiev.

It wasn’t DeAngelo’s first brush with controversy.

The NHL suspended him for three games in 2016 during his rookie season with the Arizona Coyotes for abuse of officials. That came two years after the Ontario Hockey League suspended him for eight games for making a racist slur at a teammate.

DeAngelo totaled 157 points (34 goals, 123 assists) in 270 career games with the Coyotes, Rangers and Hurricanes.
