The Philadelphia Flyers signed left wing Dan Carcillo to a one-year contract on Tuesday.

''We are happy to have Dan under contract for the 2010-11 season,'' said Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren.

Carcillo recorded 12 goals and 10 assists for 22 points and 207 penalty minutes in 76 regular season games with the Flyers this past season. The 25-year old led the team in hits (194) and his 207 penalty minutes also led the Flyers and ranked fourth in the NHL.

In the playoffs, he recorded six points and 34 penalty minutes in 17 games to help lead the Flyers to the Stanley Cup Final.

Acquired by the Flyers on Mar. 4, 2009 from the Phoenix Coyotes in exchange for Scottie Upshall and a second round draft pick in 2011, Carcillo has 26 points and 287 penalty minutes in 96 regular season games, as well as eight points and 39 penalty minutes in 22 playoff games over the past two seasons with Philadelphia.

Over parts of four seasons in the NHL with Phoenix (2006-07 to 2008-09) and the Flyers (2008-09 to 2009-10), Carcillo has recorded a total of 67 points (32G,35A) and 859 penalty minutes in 225 regular season games.

A native of King City, Ontario, Carcillo was originally selected by the Pittsburgh Penguins in the third round (73rd overall) of the 2003 NHL Entry Draft.
