The 24-year-old Chatham, Ont., native has been a valuable member of the Flames since earning a permanent spot on the blue-line last season after splitting his time between the NHL and AHL earlier in his career.

Chris Johnston on Twitter: “The market for good young D is pretty established with Brodie ($4.65M AAV), Brodin ($4.167M), Gardiner ($4.05M) and Muzzin ($4M) contracts.”

Brodie, who was selected 114th overall by the Flames in the 2008 NHL Draft, has six points in six games so far this season.
