Perhaps the Flyers’ goaltending picture next season is becoming clearer.

In a surprise move, the team re-signed goalie Michal Neuvirth to a two-year, $5M on the day of the trade deadline. TSN’s Pierre LeBrun was first to report the deal. Reports also have the Flyers re-signing winger Pierre-Édouard Bellemare to a two-year deal, terms were not disclosed.

Neuvirth, 28, has a 10-9-1 record with a 2.90 goals-against average and .887 save percentage in 24 appearances this season. He came to the Flyers as a free agent in the summer of 2015 and was fearing that he would be on the move at the deadline as he has been twice in the last three years.

“When I got traded to the Islanders from Buffalo, I knew I was a rental just in case if Jaro Halak gets hurt for the playoffs,” Neuvirth said Tuesday. “It is what it is, no matter what team I play for I’m going to try my best every time.”
