Teenage centerman German Rubtsov, the Flyers' 2016 first-round pick, agreed to an entry-level contract Thursday afternoon.
 
His three-year entry deal is worth $2.775 million with an annual average value of $925,000.
 
The 18-year-old was selected 22nd overall in last summer's NHL Entry Draft in Buffalo, New York.
 
Rubtsov came over to North America in January after his agent, Mark Gandler, successfully got him released from his KHL contract with Vtiyaz in Russia.
 
Since then, he has been playing in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League for the Chicoutimi Saguenéens, where has eight goals and 20 points in 14 games.
 
A native of Chekhov, Russia, Rubtsov was one of just four 18-year-olds to play for the Russian National Team in the 2017 IIHF World Junior Championships. He appeared in five games, going scoreless, and won a bronze medal.
 
He began the 2016-17 season in Russia's Junior League with Vityazi Chekhov, where he averaged a point per game with eight goals and seven points in 15 contests. He also appeared in 15 games in the KHL.
