Flames lock up Jooris, Elson to one-year deals

The Calgary Flames continue to inch closer to summer vacation mode, as they continued to lock up players with one-year deals for Josh Jooris and Turner Elson on Friday.

The team didn’t provide financial terms for Jooris (pictured), but the CBC’s Tim Wharnsby reports that his contract is worth $975K.

The 25-year-old enjoyed a solid rookie season for Calgary, scoring 12 goals and 12 assists for 24 points in 60 games. His postseason didn’t go so well, as he failed to register a point in nine playoff contests.

Perhaps that explains why he spoke about avoiding complacency, as the Calgary Sun’s Wes Gilbertson reports?

Both Jooris and Elson came to the Flames as undrafted free agents. In 59 games with the AHL’s Adriondack Flames, Elson, 22, generated 17 goals and 30 points.

Calgary’s already had a busy couple days, as they came to terms with Lance Bouma on Thursday.
