Brett Carson signs 2-year deal
Carson was picked up Feb. 28 from the Carolina Hurricanes. The 25-year-old has two goals and 10 assists in 78 career NHL games.
Flames general manager Jay Feaster said the club signed Carson "based on his solid play at the end of last season. ... In our end-of-season meetings, a number of our top forwards commented on his consistent ability to get the puck to them in transition.
"We are confident he will continue to develop his overall game."
