Flames prospect Brandon Hickey was thrilled to be invited to Team Canada's World Junior Summer Camp.

"Growing up, my brother and I would watch the Canada games and then we’d go to our basement, our little hockey rink, and be playing," Hickey said. "We were Team Canada against the couches. We’d have them set up so we could play around them and shoot at the net. To actually play in it would be something special." The 19-year-old was Calgary's third round pick, 64th overall, in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft.

Oliver Kylington will be able to play in North America in 2015-16.

Kylington had already signed with the Calgary Flames, but as Sweden's AIK held his rights, he would have had to go back to Europe in the likely event that he didn't make the NHL roster. Now it looks like AIK has given him permission to play in North America regardless, which means that he's free to play for the WHL's Brandon Wheat Kings or AHL Stockton depending on Calgary's preference.

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.

Josh Jooris is thrilled to be staying with the Calgary Flames.

Jooris signed a one-year deal worth $975,000 earlier this week. "I’m completely thrilled to be back in Calgary next year, and to avoid arbitration," said Jooris. "I’m looking forward to a year where I have to prove myself again and having the chance to do that again. I can’t think of a better place to continue my development." The 25-year-old scored 12 goals and 24 points in 60 NHL games last season.

Turner Elson has inked a one-year deal with the Calgary Flames.

Elson had 17 goals and 30 points in 59 AHL games last season. He's not expected to be a factor in standard fantasy leagues in 2015-16.

Josh Jooris has inked a one-year, $975,000 deal with the Calgary Flames.

Jooris has 12 goals and 24 points in 60 games with Calgary in 2014-15. He had an arbitration hearing scheduled for Tuesday that has now been rendered moot.

Lance Bouma will attempt to take another step forward offensively in 2015-16.

Bouma scored 16 goals and 34 points in 78 contests last season, up from five goals and 15 points in 2013-14. "Last year was a good year for me, but I feel I can still improve on it. That's my mindset going in," he said. "Obviously, people are going to have questions whether I can do it again and I'm going to try and do my best to prove to them I can and can do it for a long time." While he's a big contributor from a physical perspective, we don't expect him to make further strides offensively. He signed a three-year, $6.6 million contract on Thursday.

Lance Bouma has signed a three-year/$6.6 million contract with the Calgary Flames.

The two sides went to arbitration on Wednesday but agreed to the deal before the arbitrator's final decision which was expected to come on Friday. Bouma will get $2.1 million, $2.2 million and $2.3 million over the next three seasons. He had 16 goals and 34 points in 78 games in 2014-15 as a third line player while chipping in with 264 hits with the Flames. Look for a similar type season in 2015-16.

Lance Bouma is requesting $2.5 million from an arbitrator.

The Calgary Flames have countered with $1.5 million. Bouma's arbitration date is Wednesday, but the two sides can make the hearing moot if they can find common ground before then.

Dougie Hamilton doesn't see himself having difficulty dealing with the pressure that will come with his new six-year, $34.5 million deal.

"I think the expectations are going to be higher but I think in Boston there’s a lot of scrutiny from fans and expectations for me when I came in, being a top-10 pick," said Hamilton. "I think I handled that fine and think it'll be the same here, just have fun and play my game. You can’t really put too much pressure on yourself, better to just do your best and try to be as consistent as you can." Hamilton also thinks he still hasn't reached his ceiling. He recorded 10 goals and 42 points in 2014-15 and he should be able to finish in that range again next season.

Michael Frolik is ready to step into any and every role the Flames need him to in order to boost the squad for the upcoming season.

"In the past, I’ve proved I can play different roles on the team. I don’t know what my role’s going to be but I’m ready for it. Like I did in the past, I can be in the first line, I can play the third line, PK, powerplay," said the new acquisition. ""It’s gonna be a new system, different adjustments but I’m very excited to work with the coach here. I talked to (Bob Hartley) and he’s going to give me a chance to play big minutes." Frolik was a fixture in the Jets' top six last year, so its unlikely he collects significantly more than the 42 points he managed last season.
Jul 18 - 12:43 PM

The Calgary Flames have signed Drew Shore to his qualifying offer.

Shore had a goal and two assists in 11 games with the Calgary Flames in 2014-15. He also recorded 12 goals and 25 assists in 47 AHL contests.
Jul 16 - 4:04 PM

Kenneth Agostino has accepted his qualifying offer.

Agostino had 15 goals and 43 points in 67 AHL contests in 2014-15. The 23-year-old forward has a goal and an assist in eight career NHL games.
Jul 16 - 4:03 PM

Oliver Kylington has agreed to terms with the Calgary Flames.

Kylington will compete for a roster spot with Calgary this preseason, but his rights will revert back to Sweden's AIK if he doesn't make the team. He had four goals and seven points in 17 contests with AIK last season.
