Flames sign and recall Krys Kolanos

CALGARY, AB – The Calgary Flames announced today they have signed centre Krys Kolanos to a two year, two-way contract and have recalled him from the Abbotsford Heat.

“Krys has been one of our best players in Abbotsford and has done everything we’ve asked of him to earn this opportunity,” said Flames General Manager Jay Feaster. “He has worked hard on being a responsible two-way player and we look forward to him contributing to our success at both ends of the ice.”

Kolanos, a native of Calgary, Alberta, has played 136 NHL games scoring 20 goals and adding 21 assists for 41 points and 92 penalty minutes with Phoenix, Edmonton, and Minnesota. After joining the Abbotsford Heat (AHL) on a professional try-out agreement, Krys went on to earn an AHL with the club. He leads the team in scoring netting 18 goals along with 22 assists for 40 points in 34 games. He was selected to represent the West in the AHL All-Star game this past weekend.

Contract Term: Two year/two-way contract with an AAV of $525,000
I question why.
