Off-seasonEdit

The Flyers had a relatively quiet off-season, with their main actions being to re-sign Radko Gudas[4] and Brayden Schenn[5] to 4-year extensions. Nick Cousins and Brandon Manning who both saw significant time the previous season were also retained.[6][7] With the Flyers electing not to re-sign Ryan White and Sam Gagner, they moved to sign free agent Dale Weise on July 1 to a 4-year $9.4 million deal, also adding Boyd Gordon on a 1-year deal the same day.[8]
