Brett Carson inked a one-way, two year deal worth $1.15 million with the Calgary Flames. The 25-year-old has two goals and 10 assists in 78 career NHL games.
The deal pays Carson $550,000 next season, and $600,000 in 2012-13. Carson was originally acquired by the Flames off waivers from Carolina in February.
“Based on his solid play at the end of last season, we believe Brett can be an every day defenseman for us,” said Flames general manager Jay Feaster. “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, and we are confident he will continue to develop his overall game.”
