Brandon Manning has signed a one-year, $625,000 contract extension for the 2015-16 campaign.
The big news here is that it's a one-way contract. That doesn't necessarily guarantee that he'll spend the full 2015-16 campaign with Philadelphia, but it signals that the Flyers have every intention of keeping him on their roster next season. The 24-year-old had 43 points and 150 penalty minutes in 58 AHL contests and another three points and seven penalty minutes in 10 games with the Flyers. He's might have some fantasy value in standard leagues next season. That said, our incredibly preliminary assessment is that he'll be someone that will be worth keeping an eye on during training camp and the early portion of the campaign, but not taking in standard league drafts.
