Calgary Flames

NHL CapHit: $3,125,000 Puckpedia Profile

The Flames have signed Derek Ryan to a three-year, $9.375M ($3.125M AAV) contract.

Ryan was a late-bloomer, spending three years in the WHL, four years at the University of Alberta, three years in Austria, one in Sweden and one in the AHL before making it to the NHL. Ryan had 15 goals and 23 assists (38 points) in 80 games with the Hurricanes. Ryan was top-10 in the NHL in face-off percentage last year and can also chip-in on the power-play. The 30-year-old has ties to Flames head coach Bill Peters, who was just let go in Carolina.

The Hurricanes have signed Derek Ryan to a one-year extension worth $1.425M.

At 30-years-old Ryan came out of nowhere in 2016-17. After being in Europe for four years, Ryan signed with the Hurricanes in 2015-16 and posted 55 points (23G / 32A) in 70 AHL games. He enjoyed more AHL success early last year before being called up and registering 29 points (11G / 18A) in 67 NHL games. Ryan carries strong possession numbers and should be a quality depth centre for the Hurricanes in 2017-18.
