Jyrki Jokipakka (hip) should be ready for the World Cup of Hockey.

He underwent surgery in the offseason, but that shouldn't stop him from representing Finland. "Everything is looking good," Flames general manager Brad Treliving said. "He’s been back here for a little bit of time now and our staff has had a chance to check him out. Everything looks good. He’s been training. He’s been skating. I think there are a couple final checks to do, but everything is looking positive." The 25-year-old scored two goals and 12 points in 58 games with the Stars and Flames last season.

Jyrki Jokipakka is looking forward to beginning his first full season with the Calgary Flames.

The Flames acquired Jokipakka at the trade deadline when they sent Kris Russell to Dallas. "I like it here. The guys are good and it is fun to play [here]," he stated in his year-end media address. "I got more minutes here and it was fun. I think I played pretty well. The situation was we didn't make playoffs but I tried to help the team win the games and we'll be better next year. We have a good young team. I think we will grow up next year and we'll be better." The 25-year-old scored two goals and 12 points, while averaging 15:33 of ice time in 58 games last season. He won't have much fantasy value in 2016-17.

Sean Monahan admitted that he wants to be in Calgary for a long time.

Monahan signed a seven-year, $44.625 million deal with the Flames yesterday, but said he'd have signed a longer contract if he could have. "Loyalty is key," Monahan said. "Obviously, I want to be here. If you could play until you’re 50, I would sign a 20-year contract. This is where I want to be. Calgary is home and there’s no other fans I’d rather play in front of." There's nothing holding Monahan back from having a huge 2016-17. Don't be surprised if he hits 30 goals and 70 points next year.

The Calgary Flames are still working on re-signing Johnny Gaudreau.

Calgary locked up Sean Monahan on Friday and they'll shift their attention back to signing Gaudreau now. "There’s some uniqueness when you have two young players like this, relatively same age, coming out at the same time," Flames GM Brad Treliving said. "Is there some uniqueness? Sure there is. Does one impact the other? It’s like we talked about earlier, there’s a market place. … We’ll continue to work away. … That’s all you do. You pick away at it every little day. You try to find common ground."

The Calgary Flames have re-signed Sean Monahan to a seven-year contract extension.

The deal is reportedly worth $44.625 million ($6.375 million AAV). Monahan also gets a Partial No Trade Clause in the final three years of the contract. It took some time to get done, but the Flames have finally locked up their young star long-term. The 21-year-old has scored at least 22 goals in each of his first three NHL seasons. He scored a career-high 63 points in 2015-16. As impressive as Monahan's been so far, there's still a good chance that he'll continue improving his overall numbers. The Flames will now shift their focus to signing RFA Johnny Gaudreau.

The Calgary Flames are close to re-signing Sean Monahan, according to the Calgary Sun.

The deal could be as long as seven or eight years and worth $46 million or more. Monahan has scored at least 22 goals in each of his first three NHL seasons. The 21-year-old scored 27 goals and a career-high 63 points in 2015-16. Assuming the deal gets done, the Flames will then turn their attention on re-signing another young star in Johnny Gaudreau.

The Calgary Flames have hired former Coyotes general manager Don Maloney to be a pro scout.

Maloney was the GM in Arizona for nine years. Under his watch, the Coyotes made the playoffs three times. Maloney was named the NHL's General Manager of the year in 2009-10. He and current Flames GM Brad Treliving know each other from their days in the Coyotes organization. Treliving was the assistant GM in Arizona from 2003 to 2014.

Even though he hasn't signed a new contract, Johnny Gaudreau is planning on playing in the upcoming World Cup of Hockey.

This is according to Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman. Gaudreau should be set to cash in big on his next contract after two fantastic seasons with the Flames. The 23-year-old had 30 goals and 78 points in 79 games in 2015-16. He'll be suiting up for Team North America (the young guns) during the World Cup. Gaudreau has apparently told the Flames that he isn't interesting in negotiating during the tournament.

Jamie Devane will attend Calgary Flames training camp on a professional tryout.

Devane has spent most of his pro career in the AHL, but he also suited up for two NHL games with the Maple Leafs back in 2013-14. The 25-year-old was a third-round pick of the Leafs back in 2009. He had six goals, 11 points and 82 penalty minutes in 62 games with AHL Milwaukee last season. He's a long-shot to make the team.

The Calgary Flames signed Tyler Wotherspoon to a one-year, two-way deal.

He'll make $625,000 in the NHL and $125,000 in the AHL, according to General Fanager. The 23-year-old was Calgary's second round pick, 57th overall, in 2011. He played in 11 NHL games last year and recorded one assist during that span. The Flames have solid depth on defense, which doesn't bode well for Wotherspoon's chances of breaking camp on the roster. He'll likely spend at least a portion of the season in the AHL. He has no fantasy value.

Drew Shore has agreed to play for Kloten of Switzerland's National League A.

He spent the 2015-16 campaign with Calgary, where he posted one assist in two appearances with the Flames and 38 points in 59 matches with the Stockton Heat of the AHL.
Aug 13 - 9:01 AM

Troy Brouwer could be a good fit on Calgary's top line this season.

He inked a four-year contract with the Flames on the first day of free agency. Brouwer plays a physical game and he can chip in offensively, which gives him some fantasy value. He is likely to get some looks with Sean Monahan and Johnny Gaudreau, which has the potential to give him a boost.

Matthew Tkachuk will not skate at the National Junior Evaluation Camp.

"Matthew Tkachuk is not going to participate on the ice during the camp," said USA Hockey assistant executive director of hockey operations Jim Johansson. "He's here to be around the coaches and the players. We're keeping him out of physical contact." He took part at Calgary's development camp earlier in July, but he has been dealing with an ankle injury since the end of the Memorial Cup, so he will get some time off to rest.
Jul 31 - 8:23 PM

Johnny Gaudreau hasn't been involved in the negotiation process, but he is hoping to have a contract worked out soon.

He is leaving the work to his agent, Lewis Gross. "Honestly, I'm not even involved," Gaudreau said. "I try to stay out of it as much as possible. I don't like getting different numbers in my head. Hoping for this, hoping for that, how many years ... it's just, I don't really enjoy that stuff. Whatever my agent thinks is best for me is what I'm going to do. He does a really good job with his players, so I have all the faith in him that he'll get something done." Gaudreau could end up getting a deal similar to ones that Filip Forsberg, Mark Scheifele and Brandon Saad received this off-season.
Jul 30 - 9:28 PM

Calgary is expecting to have a medical update on Ladislav Smid (neck) soon.

He has been suffering from on-going neck issues, which sidelined him for the last 26 games of the 2015-16 season.
