Flames sign former Oilers tough guy Gazdic to one-year, two-way deal


Luke Gazdic has now gone to the other side of the Battle of Alberta.

The 27-year-old forward signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Calgary Flames in a deal announced on Sunday.

Gazdic, known more for his pugilistic abilities, spent three seasons with the Edmonton Oilers, appearing in 67 games in 2013-14. He had only two goals and four points, and 127 penalty minutes.

That campaign also included a fight with Kevin Westgarth, who was knocked to the ice and didn’t return after going through concussion protocol.

Gazdic spent last season in the New Jersey Devils organization, splitting time between the NHL club and its AHL affiliate in Albany. He played 11 games with New Jersey, failing to record a point while posting 12 penalty minutes.
