Per general manager Ron Hextall, the Philadelphia Flyers have signed Nolan Patrick, the second overall pick in the 2017 NHL Entry Draft, to an entry-level contract.

Patrick's signing comes shortly after the New Jersey Devils signed Nico Hischier, the No. 1 overall pick, to his entry-level pact.

Patrick, 18, was regarded as one of the top two players in the Draft as buzz heated up in the months prior to the event in Chicago that commenced last month. Patrick amassed 46 points in 33 games. The Flyers had luck on their side when they claimed the second overall pick out of the lottery. Patrick finished the season with 20 goals, 26 assists and 36 penalty minutes in 33 games.

Patrick had yet another surgery, which is said to be a minor one, on his abdomen after the NHL Entry Draft. He also served as captain of the Wheat Kings last season.

Patrick underwent abdominal surgery on June 13 to fix issues related to the sports hernia. He took part in off-ice activities during the Flyers' development camp earlier this month. Although the summer would have largely been for training camps and offseason skating, the forward has been recovering from abdominal surgery performed on June 13th.
