Flames sign Andrew Mangiapane to one-year, two-way contract

In his first NHL playoff game, Andrew Mangiapane shows off some patience and hands, as he out waits Philipp Grubauer and the Colorado Avalanche to get the Calgary Flames on the board, scoring from his knees.

The Calgary Flames have signed forward Andrew Mangiapane to a one-year, two-way contract worth $715,000, the club announced Sunday.

The 23-year-old suited up for 44 games with the Flames last season, posting eight goals and 13 points in that span. He also spent 15 games with AHL Stockton, putting up 17 points with Calgary’s minor-league affiliate.

A restricted free agent this off-season, Mangiapane and GM Brad Treliving had been locked in a lengthy stalemate, with the former’s representation pushing for a deal in the range of $1 million, according to Sportsnet’s Eric Francis — an ask that left player and team roughly $200,000 apart in negotiations at the time.

After a standoff that lasted all summer, the Toronto, Ont., native settled for the original qualifying offer Calgary put on the table back in June.

Mangiapane originally joined the Flames organization as the 166th-overall pick in the 2015 NHL Draft. He logged two seasons with the Stockton Heat — posting 41 and 46 points, respectively — after a standout junior career that saw him put up back-to-back 100-point campaigns for the OHL’s Barrie Colts.
