Flames' Jonathan Huberdeau: Inks max-length extension
Huberdeau signed an eight-year, $84 million extension with the Flames on Thursday.
Huberdeau was traded from the Panthers to the Flames in the Matthew Tkachuk deal July 22, and now both cornerstones of the trade are under contract long-term with their new teams. Huberdeau's deal takes him through the 2030-31 season at an eight-figure cap hit, at which point he'll be nearly 38 years old. The winger is expected to be a top-line fixture for the Flames for well over half of that term, and he can be targeted confidently in the first two rounds of most fantasy drafts this fall. He's coming off of a career-best 30-goal, 115-point season.... See More ... See Less
Flames' Andrew Mangiapane: Receives three-year contract
Mangiapane (wrist) signed a three-year, $17.4 million contract with the Flames on Tuesday.
Mangiapane was scheduled for an arbitration hearing Friday, but he'll avoid that with a new deal. It's a significant raise for the winger, who had a $2.425 million cap hit over the previous two seasons. He earned the new deal with 35 goals and 20 assists in 82 games last season, and he figures to slot into a top-six role with power-play time heading into 2022-23.... See More ... See Less
Flames' Oliver Kylington: Settles before arbitration
Kylington (shoulder) signed a two-year, $5 million contract with the Flames on Tuesday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.
Kylington avoided arbitration by signing this deal. The 25-year-old took a major step forward in 2021-22 with nine goals and 31 points in 73 contests, but the Flames' addition of Mackenzie Weegar in the Matthew Tkachuk trade could still mean a reduced role for Kylington. He'll likely be in contention for a third-pairing role for the upcoming season.... See More ... See Less
Flames' Martin Pospisil: Re-ups with club
Pospisil inked a one-year, two-way deal with Calgary on Tuesday.
Pospisil generated seven goals and 18 assists in 47 games for AHL Stockton this past season but has yet to earn a promotion to the NHL roster. Selected by the team in the fourth round of the 2018 NHL Draft, the 22-year-old center could make his debut this year but should probably be expected to play the bulk of his games in the minors....

Flames' Matthew Phillips: Inks new contract
Phillips signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Flames on Saturday.
Phillips led AHL Stockton last season with 31 goals and added 37 assists in 65 games. He was called up as one of the Flames' Black Aces during the playoffs. The undersized winger's impressive scoring pace should earn him a long look in training camp, but the two-way nature of his deal suggests he'll spend at least part of the campaign in the bus league....

Flames' Cole Schwindt: Sent to Flames
Florida traded Schwindt, Jonathan Huberdeau, MacKenzie Weegar and a first-round pick to Calgary for Matthew Tkachuk and a fourth-round pick Friday.
Schwindt was a third-round pick in the 2019 NHL Entry Draft. He's coming off a 19-goal, 40-point performance through 72 games in his first full season with AHL Charlotte. The 21-year-old forward also appeared in three NHL contests last season but failed to record his first career point. Schwindt should get a chance to compete for a bottom-six role in training camp, though he could split time between the AHL and NHL levels during the 2022-23 campaign.... See More ... See Less
Flames' MacKenzie Weegar: Dealt north of border
The Panthers traded Weegar, Jonathan Huberdeau, Cole Schwindt and a first-round pick to the Flames on Friday in exchange for Matthew Tkachuk and a fourth-round pick Friday.
There had been rumors this offseason regarding a potential trade for Weegar despite other reports stating that he and the Panthers were working on an extension. Those rumors culminated in him being involved with the biggest blockbuster of the offseason. Weegar averaged 23:22 of ice time with eight goals and 44 points through 80 games last season. On top of that, he also blocked 156 shots, laid out 179 hits and put 203 shots on net. The 28-year-old blueliner will immediately slot into Calgary's top four and could see an increase in power-play time as well. Weegar has one year left on his $3.25 million AAV deal.... See More ...

Flames' Jonathan Huberdeau: Sent to Calgary
Florida traded Huberdeau, MacKenzie Weegar, Cole Schwindt and a first-round pick for Matthew Tkachuk and a fourth-round pick Friday.
Huberdeau being traded after a 30-goal, 115-point performance with the President's Trophy-winning Panthers could be the most shocking move of the offseason. The 29-year-old was a top-line staple with Florida and had posted four consecutive seasons with at least a point per game. He'll have a top-line spot next to Elias Lindholm waiting for him in Calgary to begin the 2022-23 campaign while also skating with the top power-play unit. Huberdeau has one year left on his $5.9 million AAV contract and he'll surely be looking for a sizable raise on his next deal.... See More ... See Less
Flames' Matthew Tkachuk: Won't sign long-term in Calgary
Tkachuk (hand) has notified the Flames that he will not sign a long-term deal in Calgary, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports. Also, he hasn't formally requested a trade but has given a list of teams he'd be willing to sign with after the 2022-23 season (Dallas, Nashville, Vegas, St. Louis and Florida), per The Athletic.
The team has already initiated the arbitration process with Tkachuk, so it sounds like he'll spend one more season at most in Calgary before becoming an unrestricted free agent. He's likely to be traded well before then, but no matter the return the Flames might get for the 24-year-old, this is a tough bit of news for fans after fellow star forward Johnny Gaudreau departed earlier this month to Columbus in free agency....

Flames' Ben Jones: Signs deal with Calgary
Jones signed a one-year, two-way deal worth $750,000 at the NHL level with the Flames on Saturday, PuckPedia reports.
The 23-year-old doesn't have much NHL service under his belt (no points in two games with Vegas last season), but he's flashed some offense at the AHL level with 25 goals and 41 points in 41 contests with Henderson in 2021-22. Add in Jones' 102-point explosion in his final season with OHL Niagara, and it's perfectly conceivable that he could carve out a regular role at some point with the Flames.... See More ... See Less
Flames' Nikita Zadorov: Returns to Calgary
Zadorov (ribs) signed a two-year, $7.5 million contract with the Flames on Wednesday, per PuckPedia.
Zadorov was allowed to test free agency, but he decided to remain with the Flames. His $3.75 million cap hit is the same as it was last year. He put up 22 points and 181 hits as a physical third-pairing defenseman in 2021-22. The 27-year-old will need a new defense partner after Erik Gudbranson joined the Blue Jackets on a four-year deal -- Juuso Valimaki or Connor Mackey will likely get a chance on the Flames' third pairing.... See More ... See Less
Flames' Trevor Lewis: Another year in Calgary
Lewis signed a one-year, $800,000 contract with the Flames on Wednesday.
Lewis posted 16 points and 176 hits in 80 games for the Flames last year. He'll remain with the organization for another season, where he'll likely fill a fourth-line role.... See More ... See Less
Flames' Nick DeSimone: Back in Flames organization
DeSimone signed a two-year, two-way contract with the Flames on Wednesday.
DeSimone spent last season with AHL Stockton, registering 25 points in 68 games. The defenseman has yet to make his NHL debut and is likely organizational depth for the Flames.... See More ... See Less
Flames' Colton Poolman: Re-ups with Calgary
Poolman signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Flames on Wednesday.
Poolman has yet to make his NHL debut. He's logged 19 points in 83 contests across the last two seasons with AHL Stockton, and he'll likely follow the Flames' minor-league affiliate in their move to Alberta. The defenseman could be an option for a third-pairing job at some point in 2022-23.... See More ... See Less
Flames' Nicolas Meloche: Joins Calgary
Meloche signed a one-year, $950,000 contract with the Flames on Wednesday.
Meloche's deal is one-way, which suggests he'll make the Flames' Opening Night roster. The 24-year-old went unqualified by the Sharks after posting seven points in 50 NHL contests last season, the first where he spent a majority of time with the big club.... See More ... See Less
Flames' Oscar Dansk: Back in North America
Dansk signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Flames on Wednesday.
Dansk spent last season with KHL Spartak Moscow. He had a 2.66 GAA and a .910 save percentage in 17 games there, but he'll try another stint in North America, where he'll likely be a mentor to Dustin Wolf with the Flames' minor-league affiliate.... See More ... See Less
Flames' Clark Bishop: Latches on with Calgary
Bishop signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Flames on Wednesday.
Bishop spent the last two years in the Senators' organization. He had four points in 22 NHL games and another 17 points in 43 AHL contests over those campaigns. As such, Bishop is likely to report to the Flames' minor-league affiliate.... See More ... See Less
Flames' Dennis Gilbert: Snags one-way deal
Gilbert signed a two-year, one-way contract with the Flames on Wednesday, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.
The fact that Gilbert was able to land a one-way deal comes as a bit of a surprise, as the 25-year-old defender spent the entirety of the 2021-22 season in the minors, picking up 23 points through 52 appearances with AHL Colorado. The Flames are pretty shorthanded at defense, so Gilbert could earn at least a semi-regular NHL role in 2022-23.... See More ... See Less
