Manning has been bothered by a shoulder injury during the preseason, but it looks like he will be ready to play in the Flyers’ season opener. This is good news for Philadelphia, who will be without Michael Del Zotto (lower-body) and Radko Gudas (suspension) for at least the first six games.
The Flyers signed Brandon Manning to a two-year contract worth $1.95 million ($975K AAV).
Manning, 26, spent the entire 2015-16 season with the Flyers after splitting the first four years of his professional career between the AHL and NHL. He tallied just seven points (1G / 6A) in 56 games, bringing his career total to 12 points (1G / 11A) in 77 NHL games. Manning is a member of a very crowded Flyers blueline, which will likely add rookie Ivan Provorov during training camp, so Manning may end up as an extra defenseman or back in Adirondack (AHL).
