With a 3 point game Oliver Bjorkstrand gave the Flames their 4th million dollars under the Mountain Due Endorsement as he crossed the 100 point threshold in the WHL.

Achieved: Oscar Dansk $1 million - best Goalie in the WJC
John Klingberg $1 million - 20 points for a Dman in the SEL
Adam Clendening $1 million - 30 points for a Dman in the AHL
Oliver Bjorkstrand $1 million - 100 points for a forward in the CHL

With the Flames meeting 2 of the other 3 endorsements they will add $9.5 million to the bank account and cross over the $30 million mark. An additional couple of home playoff games continue to improve the forecast.

It hasn't been easy - it meant trading away Datsyuk and other much loved players during a depressed market but in the long run it will pay off. With teams struggling to find buyers of their expensive high priced veterans the Flames were able to stay within 2 million dollars of the floor all season.

Considering the Flames ended last season with only $4 million in the bank account the turnaround has been remarkable.

NOTES

The Flames signed Alex Killorn and Zack Kassian and promoted Jamie McBain from the minors to improve the team for the run in.

The Flames signed several players to contract extensions. Jeff Skinner, Anton Khudobin, Dion Phaneuf and Tyler Kennedy were all extended.
