St. Lawrence University standout Kyle Flanagan has signed with the Philadelphia Flyers, according to an online report on Tuesday night.

Flanagan, who just completed his senior season with the Saints, has agreed to an amateur tryout agreement with the Flyers, TSN’s Bob McKenzie reported. The forward will report on Friday to the Adirondack Phantoms, Philadelphia’s affiliate in the American Hockey League.

If all goes well, the 24-year-old Flanagan will get a one-year NHL contract with Philadelphia for next season.

Flanagan, a Canton native who just finished his second season as team captain at St. Lawrence, totaled 47 points, including 15 goals in 35 games this season.

He finished with 147 career points, including 46 goals and 101 assists at the school and is just the seventh Saints player to record at least 100 career assists.

Flanagan helped guide the Saints to a fifth-place finish in ECAC Hockey this season. After sweeping Colgate in two games in a first-round playoff series at St. Lawrence, the Saints were beaten in two games at Yale in the quarterfinal round this past weekend.

Both Flanagan and linemate Greg Carey, a junior winger, are Hobey Baker Award candidates.
