Patrick, 22, was coming off his entry-level contract and he’ll be a restricted free agent next summer.
The former member of the Winnipeg Thrashers and Brandon Wheat Kings missed all of last season with a migraine disorder and hasn’t played a game since April of 2019.
He scored 13 goals in each of his first two seasons in the NHL. He followed up his 30-point rookie season with a 31-point effort in 2018-2019.
Patrick was the Flyers’ second overall pick in the 2017 NHL Draft.
