Chris VandeVelde has parlayed an AHL contract into his second straight NHL one.
The Flyers re-upped with the 27-year-old veteran on Friday, giving VandeVelde a one-year, two-way deal. This comes after VandeVelde began last season on a deal with AHL Adirondack before inking with Philly in mid-December.
The former Oilers draft pick (97th overall, 2005) appeared in 18 games for the Flyers last season, recording one point. All told he’s appeared in 46 career NHL contests but has done the majority of his time in the American League — last year, he racked up 10 goals and 24 points in 41 games for the Phantoms.
