The Philadelphia Flyers signed center Nolan Patrick, the No. 2 overall pick in last month's National Hockey League draft, to a three-year, entry-level contract on Monday.

A native of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Patrick was initially expected to go first overall in the 2017 draft class, but an injury-riddled draft-eligible season and a breakout year for eventual first overall pick Nico Hischier resulted in Patrick's drop to the Flyers.

The deal is for three years and $2.775 million, with an annual salary-cap hit of $925,000, according to CapFriendly.com. Aside from the Flyers being happy to jump to second in the draft, they will be ecstatic to have landed a prospect the caliber of Nolan Patrick. Patrick amassed 46 points in 33 games. Patrick finished the season with 20 goals, 26 assists and 36 penalty minutes in 33 games.

Her parents are publicizing the tragedy in an attempt to raise awareness about the potential danger of texting while bathing. Her grandmother Donna O'Guinn revealed that the tragic girl had "burn marks" on her hand from when she touched the device.

Patrick had surgery to fix the injury on June 13th but was able to take part in off ice activities during the Philadelphia Flyers development camp earlier in July.

It will be interesting to see Patrick on the ice for the Philadelphia Flyers once training camp rolls around but for the time being, Ron Hextall has done what is needed to make sure that the team's top draft pick has been locked up.
