Calgary Flames sign Curtis Lazar to two-year contract

Former Ottawa Senators forward and current member of the Calgary Flames Curtis Lazar talks about what he's looking forward to next season and how he wishes his former team and friends the best of luck in the playoffs.

The Calgary Flames signed Curtis Lazar to a two-year contract, the team announced Friday. The deal comes with an annual salary cap hit of $950,000.

Lazar was a restricted free agent. The 22-year-old was acquired from the Ottawa Senators at the trade deadline. He only suited up for four games with the Flames this past season, plus one post-season contest, registering one goal and two assists.

The former Edmonton Oil Kings star was selected 17th overall by the Senators in 2013 and has totalled 39 points in 180 career regular-season NHL games.

Lazar was one of three important restricted free agent forwards the Flames had to sign this off-season. The team inked Micheal Ferland to a two-year, $3.5-million contract Thursday and Flames general manager Brad Treliving still needs to re-sign 2014 fourth-overall pick Sam Bennett.
