The Calgary Flames have signed Mark Jankowski to an entry-level deal, the team announced Wednesday.
The Flames selected the centreman with the 21st overall pick at the 2012 draft, making him the highest Canadian high school draft pick ever.
Jankowski, 21, commented on the long-awaited signing, calling it “a dream come true” and saying that he “couldn’t be happier it’s with the Flames.”
Flames general manager Brad Treliving has been confident all along that they could come to an agreement following Jankowski’s NCAA career.
The St. Catharines, Ont., native just completed his senior season at Providence College. He registered 15 goals and 25 assists in 38 games with the team to lead the Friars in goals, assists and points.
