Farabee penned a six-year, $30 million deal with the Flyers on Thursday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports. The contract starts in the 2022-23 season.

Farabee is coming off a great sophomore showing that featured 20 goals and 38 points. His shooting percentage is bound to fall from the bloated 16.4 mark he posted last year, but the 2018 No. 14 overall pick has plenty of pedigree and will likely only improve further in his age-22 season and beyond. Further positioning him for success, Farabee is slated for a top-six role while manning the point on one of the power-play units, as well, so a trip to the 60-point plateau should be well within striking distance over a full 82-game campaign.
