Flames avoid arbitration, sign Byron to one-year deal

The Calgary Flames announced that they have signed Paul Byron to a one-year contract.

The financial terms of the agreement weren’t released, but his deal is reportedly worth $900K, per Elliotte Friedman.

Byron, 26, was limited to 57 games last season due to injuries and underwent sports hernia and wrist surgeries over the offseason. He finished the 2014-15 campaign with six goals and 19 points in 57 contests.

He had an arbitration hearing scheduled for Thursday after completing his previous $600K contract. With Byron re-signed, the Flames’ only remaining restricted free agent is Michael Ferland.

Calgary might not be done this summer after inking Ferland though as captain Mark Giordano, who only has one season left on his contract, could still be re-signed.
