The Philadelphia Flyers announced today they have signed Kitchener Rangers forward Connor Bunnaman to an NHL Entry Level Contract. Terms of the agreement have not been disclosed.
Bunnaman, a Guelph, ON native, was selected by the Flyers in the fourth round, 109th overall in the 2016 NHL Draft. He was the Rangers’ second round, 31st overall pick in the 2014 OHL Priority Selection.
The 19-year-old centre is coming off a career-best 52 points in 64 games played during the 2016-17 season, while his 37 even strength goals and 16 power play markers were both team highs and career bests. He also led the Rangers in goals (4) and points (4) in the Rangers’ first-round playoff series vs. the Owen Sound Attack.
Bunnaman has dressed in 217 total regular season and playoff games during his three-year tenure with the Rangers. He registered his 100th career regular season OHL point with his first of three goals on March 11, 2017 vs. the Flint Firebirds. His three power play goals during that game also tied a Rangers’ franchise mark for number of power play goals scored by a player in a single game.
