Ron Hextall waited until the last minute, but was able to lock up Brayden Schenn to avoid arbitration.
The Philadelphia Flyers signed the restricted free agent center Schenn to a four-year deal on Monday. He will make $20.5 million, according to TSN.

There was an arbitration scheduled for 9 A.M. this morning and had that hearing went down, the ruling would’ve only been for two years. Schenn is coming off the best season of his seven-year career, posting 26 goals and 33 assists, both career highs. He will miss the first three games next year after being suspended for his hit on the Washington Capitals’ T.J. Oshie in the playoffs.
