PHILADELPHIA — The Philadelphia Flyers have signed goaltender Ron Hextall to a new multi-year contract.
Terms of the agreement were not released by the team Tuesday.
Hextall, 23, is struggling in his second National Hockey League season after winning the Vezina Trophy as the league's top goalie last season and recognitions as the most valuable player in the Stanley Cup finals, which the Flyers lost to the Edmonton Oilers.
He has a 2-7-2 record with a 3.94 goals-against average after serving an eight game suspension at the start of the season for a stick-swinging incident during last season's playoffs.
Hextall was the Flyers' sixth-round draft choice in 1982.
