Twarynski, who was returned by the Flyers to the WHL team during training camp, was drafted by Philadelphia in the third round of the 2016 NHL entry draft.
In his second campaign with the Rockets in 2017-18, Twarynski is enjoying a breakout season, leading the club with 43 goals.
Since being acquired at the trade deadline last season from the Calgary Hitmen, Twarynski has played in 94 regular season games with the Rockets scoring 50 goals and 42 assists for 92 points.
He also added three goals and two assists for five points in 16 post season games last year.
