While discussions have started, Simmonds is focused primarily on his health heading into the final season of his six-year, $23.85-million contract.
"I've gotta get healthy, first and foremost, and show (them) that I am the player that I was, I think, two years ago," Simmonds said, according to Matisz.
Following the Flyers' first-round playoff elimination in April, Simmonds revealed a ridiculous list of injuries he played through in 2017-18.
The 30-year-old still managed to suit up in 75 contests last season, recording 24 goals and 46 points - his lowest total in both categories in a full campaign since 2011-12.
When fully healthy, Simmonds is one of the premier producers at his position. Since 2013-14, Simmonds' 144 goals rank sixth among all right-wingers. If he can get back on track next season, it's safe to say he'll be in line for a raise from his modest $3.975 million cap hit.
