The Red Wings have signed Turner Elson to a one-year ($725k/115k) contract extension.
Elson has been a career AHLer and has spent the last three seasons with Grand Rapids. In 2020, the 28-year-old had nine goals with 13 assists (22 points) in 61 games.
Here is the list of guys who were assigned to the Heat: John Armstrong (C), Adam Avramenko (G), Bryan Cameron (RW), Justin Dowling (C), Turner Elson (LW), Ryley Grantham (LW), Ryan Howse (RW), Quintin Laing (C), Logan MacMillan (LW), James Martin (D), John Negrin (D), Jonathan Rheault (RW), C.J. Severyn (LW), Dustin Sylvester (C), Mitch Wahl (C)
Calgary Flames announced the signing of camp invitees Trurner Elson and James Martin yesterday.
The 19-year-old probably returns to Juniors for at least one more season. Elson scored 16 goals and 31 points last season with the Red Deer Rebels but is known more for his physical play. Look for him to take at least one year to make the AHL.
