The Flames signed Josh Leivo to a one-year contract worth $875K.
Leivo appeared in just 36 games with the Canucks last season, picking up seven goals and 12 assists (19 points). The Leivo signing continues the Flames' trend of bringing in former Canucks this offseason. With Dominik Simon and Joakim Nordstrom also signing with the Flames, they have plenty of internal competition for bottom-6 roles this season.
The Flames signed Nikita Nesterov to a one-year deal worth $700K.
Nesterov was originally a fifth-round pick of the Lightning back in 2011. He spent four seasons in North America, including parts of three seasons in the NHL before returning to Russia and playing in the KHL from 2018-to-2020. Nesterov had 23 points (7G / 16A) in 53 games with CSKA Moscow in the most recent season and has 33 points (9G / 24A) in 132 career NHL games with Tampa Bay and Montreal.

The Flames have signed Chris Tanev to a four-year deal worth $18.0 million ($4.5M AAV).
Tanev is a stable defenseman that can play the tough minutes but offers very little in the way of offence. Tanev struggled when he wasn't paired with Quinn Hughes in 2020 but this addresses a big need after the departure of TJ Brodie. Expect Brodie to be paired with Mark Giordano at the top of the Flames' blueline.
The Flames have re-signed Zac Rinaldo to a one-year, two-way contract worth $700K.
Rinaldo split his 2020 campaign between the AHL and NHL, finishing the season in Calgary and playing in five playoff games. The pugilist could start 2021 on the Flames roster but likely won't be a regular player.
The Flames have signed Jacob Markstrom to a six-year contract worth $36.0 million ($6.0M AAV).
Markstrom is coming off of the best year of his career, tying for 11th in the NHL in wins (23), 13th in SV% (.918) and tied for 25th in GAA (2.75). Now he goes from a team that gave up the third most scoring chances to a team that ranked in the middle of the pack, so his GAA and SV% should improve in 2021. The Flames have made a huge commitment to him but they have not had a goalie with a SV% above .920 since Miikka Kiprusoff in 2011-12.
The Flames have signed Alex Petrovic to a one-year, two-way deal.
Petrovic spent the entire 2020 campaign with the Providence Bruins (AHL) and will likely do the same in Stockton (AHL) next year. Petrovic is a big, physical defenseman that can log NHL minutes if the Flames find themselves in a bind.
The Flames have signed Buddy Robinson to a one-year deal worth $700K.
Robinson had another strong season in the AHL in 2020, scoring 18 goals with 14 assists (32 points) in 45 games. In his first two years with Stockton, he's compiled 32 goals and 42 assists (74 points) in 110 games. He earned a late-season call-up and will be a fringe roster player to start 2021.
The Flames have signed Justin Kirkland to a one-year, two-way contract extension.
Kirkland was a third-round pick of the Predators in 2014 but signed with the Flames last summer. He spent the entire 2020 season with Stockton (AHL), where he had six goals and 22 assists (28 points) in 53 games.
Markstrom starts Game 3 vs. the Golden Knights.
Markstrom starts Game 2 vs. the Golden Knights.
Markstrom will start Game 1 vs. the Golden Knights.
