NHL Cap Hit: $75,158,376 Puckpedia Profile

The Flames have re-signed Andrew Mangiapane to a one-year contract worth $715K.

Mangiapane spent most of his time in the NHL in 2019, scoring eight goals with five assists (13 points) in 44 games with the Flames. Mangiapane will likely be reserved to a fourth-line role, with Johnny Gaudreau, Matthew Tkachuk and Milan Lucic ahead of him on the depth chart.

Valimaki will miss six to nine months with a torn ACL.

The Flames D-depth took a hit in August when Valimaki suffered a torn ACL. Michael Stone was signed on Wednesday to help fill that void. Stone and Oscar Kylington will likely battle for the sixth spot to open the 2020 season. Best case scenario, Valimaki returns late in the season and is ready for the playoffs.

The Flames have re-signed David Rittich to a two-year extension worth $5.5M ($2.75M AAV).

Rittich played very well for stretches of the 2019 season, going 27-9-5 with a 2.61 GAA and .911 SV% in 45 games with the Flames. However, when it came to the postseason, the Flames leaned on Mike Smith and were ultimately bounced in the first-round. Coming into 2020, Rittich will be battling with Cam Talbot for the No.1 job and the 26-year-old probably has the early edge to win the spot.

The Flames have signed Sam Bennett to a two-year extension worth $5.1 million ($2.55M AAV).

After missing just one game in 2017 and 2018 combined, Bennett appeared in just 71 games last season but averaged the least ice-time of his career (13:17 TOI/GM). Bennett wrapped the season up with 27 points (13G / 14A). Bennett will likely be fighting with Michael Frolik for a spot on the Flames’ second line but will likely open the year in the bottom-6.

The Flames acquired Milan Lucic and a conditional 2020 third round pick from the Oilers for James Neal.

Lucic waived his no-movement clause to get dealt to Calgary and brings a contract that has four years left on it with a $6.0M cap-hit—however the Oilers retained 12.5 percent of that contract ($750K) to make his cap-hit with the Flames $5.25M AAV. . Lucic had a solid first year with the Oilers but has combined for just 54 points (16G / 38A) in 161 games over the past two seasons. Lucic will likely be tasked with playing a physical, bottom-6 role in Calgary—replacing what they lost with Garnet Hathaway going to Washington this summer.

The Flames have re-signed Rinat Valiev to a one-year contract.

Valiev has moved around Canada over the last year, going from Toronto to Montreal and then Calgary. The 24-year-old blueliner is a former third-round pick and had four goals and 17 assists (21 points) in 57 AHL games a season ago. Valiev will almost certainly start the 2020 season with Stockton (AHL).

The Flames have re-signed Ryan Lomberg to a one-year contract.

Lomberg had 29 points (12G / 17A) in 58 games with Stockton (AHL) last season and had a brief four-game showing with the Flames, where he had 17 PIMS. Lomberg is a fourth-line player who could have a spot in Calgary next year after Garnet Hathaway signed with the Capitals this summer.

The Flames have signed Alan Quine to a one-year deal worth $735K.

Quine has been a fantastic AHL player over the years and led the Stockton Heat with 52 points (19G / 33A) in 41 games this season. The 26-year-old also recorded three goals and two assists (five points) in 13 games with Calgary—he has 27 points (9G / 18A) in 97 career NHL games.
