Sources tell TSN the Philadelphia Flyers and forward Jeff Carter have officially agreed to terms on a three-year, $15 million contract extension.

Carter, 23, was set to become a restricted free agent next Tuesday.

"I'm very excited to be staying in Philadelphia,” said Carter in a statement. "We have great group of guys on this team and I can't wait to get back on the ice and continue where we left off last season."

Carter appeared in all 82 of of the Flyers' regular season games last season, tallying 29 goals and 53 points. In 17 playoff games, the London, Ontario native had six goals and five assists and helped lead the team to the Eastern Conference final.

"Jeff is a terrific young player who has come up through our organization and we believe that he is only going to get better,” said general manager Paul Holmgren in making the announcement. "It is a priority for us to keep our core of young players intact and signing Jeff allows us to do that."

Taken 11th overall by the Flyers in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft, Carter has 66 goals and 132 points in 225 career NHL games.
