Travis Konecny, Flyers agree to new contract and fans go into a frenzy on social media


Flyers Twitter has officially gone into a frenzy thanks to the team's Twitter account.

Let's break it down from the beginning.

First, the Flyers tweeted this GIF of Travis Konecny. Considering a deal was not done at this point (that we knew of), it caused some chaos. 

With no other information in the tweet aside from the single emoji, one of two things were possible — their social media manager has a degree in A-plus trolling, or the team was about to drop some major news.

Turns out, they were right. Just 15 minutes later, the news officially broke — Konecny and the Flyers agreed to terms on a six-year deal with an average annual value of $5.5 million. Eat up, bud.

Fans began expressing their excitement throughout Twitter and it doesn't look like it's going to stop anytime soon.

Heck, even the Flyers social media team joined in on the fun.

Now, all contracts are set for the Flyers before the start of the regular season. Everyone is locked in, ready to go and it's time to Fly or Die
