Flyers Sign F David Kase to Entry-Level Deal
The Flyers have signed forward David Kase to an entry-level deal, GM Ron Hextall announced on Friday.
Kase, 21, was selected with the Flyers fifth-round pick, 128th overall, in the 2015 NHL Draft.
Kase spent the last season playing in the SHL, Sweden's top professional league. With Mora, he scored nine goals and had 23 points in 44 games. He added one goal and two assists in five playoff games.
Kase participated in the World Junior Championship with Czech Republic three times, and was an alternate captain in 2016 and 2017. In 14 games at World Juniors, Kase scored two goals and had five points.
Kase also was a participant at Flyers Development Camp in each of the last three years.
Kase's older brother, Ondrej Kase, has played for the Anaheim Ducks for the last two seasons.
With Kase now under contract, only two of the Flyers seven draft picks still in the system from 2015 have not been signed.
Kase will be eligible to join the Lehigh Valley Phantoms next season.
