Flames GM Craig Conroy announces new contract

It's been a busy week for the Flames GM.



It's been a busy first year on the job for Calgary Flames general manager Craig Conroy, who has already had to negotiate multiple trades for his club that is clearly going through a transitional phase. 

But while he's had to bid goodbye to several players who were organizational mainstays, he's ensured that one particular player will remain with the club for at least the next two seasons. Earlier this afternoon, it was announced that the Flames have re-signed Martin Pospisil to a two-year extension that carries an AAV of $1 million. 

“We have seen tremendous growth and maturity in Martin’s game since we drafted him in 2018," said Flames General Manager Craig Conroy. “Martin has become a big part of our team and we are excited to have him under contract for the next two years.”

Via the official press release on the Flames website: 

"Pospisil made his NHL debut earlier this season on November 4th in Seattle, scoring his first National Hockey League goal in his first big league appearance. The 24-year-old has suited up in 34 games for the Flames on the campaign, registering four goals and seven assists for eleven points and 37 penalty-minutes. Pospisil’s +10 rating on the season ranks fourth among all rookies in the league. The Zvolen, SVK native was the Flames fourth-round pick (105th overall) in the 2018 NHL Draft."
