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).
