Brian Elliott signs with Flyers

A two-year, $2.75 million deal is in place between the Flyers and unrestricted free agent Brian Elliott, according to a report by Andy Strickland on Friday.

Last season with the Flames, Elliott went 26-18-3 with a 2.55 goals-against average and .910 save percentage in 49 games (45 starts).

Elliott’s best seasons came with the Blues from 2011-2016, a five-year stretch in which he went 104-46-16 with a 2.01 goals-against average, .925 save percentage and two All-Star bids.

The Flyers and unrestricted free agent Steve Mason decided to part ways, per the goalie’s agent on Thursday. Other options in net, via free agency, were Jonathan Bernier, Antti Niemi and Ryan Miller. Bernier will likely demand more money, while the aging Niemi is coming off a disastrous season and Miller, who turns 37 in July, looks to be headed out west.
