3rd year, undrafted center Ben Holmstrom(23) quietly signed a 1-year contract extension to stay in Philadelphia Flyers‘ system for 2012/2013. He was entering his first year of restricted free agency. There’s zero news of the signing on the team website.

He’s appeared in 7 NHL games over his first two seasons but has yet to strike on the scoresheet.

Last season the 6’1″ 190 lbs. forward wore the “C” for their AHL affiliate Adirondack Phantoms and put up career bests in assists (26), points (41) and penalty minutes (134). These marks were set in 12 less games than he skated in his rookie campaign.

It’s definitely time for the 25-year old to start putting up even better numbers in the team’s prospect system and maybe even chip in some if he can continue the streak of call-ups.
