Ivan Fedotov in His NHL Debut
Photo credit: Daily Faceoff

Ivan Fedotov has had quite the whirlwind of a week. He has his KHL contract terminated, came over and joined the Flyers, made his debut, being thrown in relief in the 2nd period, and now is in heavy contract extension talks with the Flyers.

Fedotov has been the talk of the Flyers since his arrival. The tallest goalie in NHL history is making headlines, and the fan base wants more. They are itching for Fedotov to get his first start.
Fedotov is an UFA at the end of the year but the Flyers are working hard on not letting it get that far according to insider Chris Johnson.
He hasn't even played a full NHL game yet... and already work is underway on what would be his second NHL contract. And that's because of the unique circumstances at play here, with him being 27 years old.
It sounds like considerable progress has been made towards an extension. It might not be something we see announced in-season here, it might come a little bit after the year. But certainly, from both sides of the equation, the Flyers and Fedotov, I think they want this to be a longer-term stint together and I do expect him to be signed long before free agency.

It seems the Flyers are working quickly to lock up Fedotov, and with their recent goalie struggles dating back to when Ron Hextall manned the net, no one blames them.
