The Philadelphia Flyers have locked up their intriguing Russian goaltender, Ivan Fedotov, for two more seasons with a contract extension worth $6.5 million. This deal, carrying an average annual value of $3.25 million, keeps Fedotov off the unrestricted free agent market this summer.

Fedotov’s NHL debut this season was brief, spanning just three appearances with a less-than-stellar 4.95 goals-against average. However, the Flyers clearly see potential in the 27-year-old. His path to the NHL was anything but ordinary after his contract with CSKA Moscow was terminated following a complicated dispute spurred by his unexpected military service in Russia.

Despite the turbulent circumstances, Fedotov put up solid numbers with CSKA this season. He maintained a .914 save percentage and a 2.37 goals-against average in his 21-22-1 record. His playoff performance was not as dominant, but the Flyers clearly believe his talent and international experience justify the investment.

Drafted by the Flyers in 2015, Fedotov’s development has taken twists and turns. With this new two-year deal, the Philadelphia Flyers are banking on his potential to bolster their goaltending in the coming years.
