Shayne Gostisbehere's pitchman routine worked.
The Flyers on Friday signed 24-year-old centerman Mike Vecchione, a teammate of Ghost at Union College, to a one-year contract for $925,000.

He will join the Flyers immediately and is expected to play out the final five games of the season.
"I told him everything I could about why he should sign here and why this is a great organization, but the rest of it is up to him," Gostisbehere said a few days ago.
Vecchione had a short list of the Flyers, Rangers and Lightning. At 5-foot-10, he is another undersized forward, much like Travis Konecny and Jordan Weal, but he has established a reputation for playing above his size.
He led Union College with 29 goals this season and is a Hobey Baker finalist.
