Paul Byron played in his first preseason game on Friday.

The significance of this is that Byron had off-season surgery on his wrist and was unable to shoot all summer as he finally had the pin removed from his wrist in early September. He had 19 points in 57 games with the Flames last season and expect a bit more this season.

Paul Byron will have a pin removed from his wrist in the first week of September.

He hopes to be ready for the start of camp. Byron had his wrist scoped in June. That would seem to leave him very little time to rehab and get back on the ice. He had six goals and 19 points last season. He agreed to a one-year, $900,000 contract Sunday afternoon. "I don't think any player wants to go to arbitration," Byron said. "You don't want to ruin the relationship between you and the team."

The Flames have signed Paul Byron to a one-year, $900,000 contract, according to Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet.

Calgary announced the deal Sunday, with Friedman reporting the financial component. Byron had 19 points in 57 games last season. The restricted free agent had an arbitration hearing set for Thursday.

Paul Byron has an arbitration hearing set for July 30.

Of course, it will be moot if the Calgary Flames can sign Byron before it starts. In order to do that, they'll probably have to offer him a raise over his $600,000 salary in 2014-15 as he recorded six goals and 19 points in 57 contests.
Jul 13 - 5:05 PM

Calgary Flames RFA forward Paul Byron filed for salary arbitration on Friday.

Byron is coming off a one-year, $600K contract, which was a slight haircut form his previous one-year, $614K contract. Last season, he collected 19 points and 101 hits in just 57 games as he missed time due to injury. The Flames have the cap space (about $7.1M) to re-sign the 26-year-old, the question is if they can find a term and value that works for both sides.
