The Calgary Flames have re-signed left wing Rene Bourque to a multi-year contract. No terms were disclosed.

Bourque is in his second season with the Flames after being acquired on July 1, 2008 from Chicago for a conditional draft choice. The 6-foot-2, 207-pound forward has scored 156 points in 280 career NHL games. He has established a career high for points already this season with 41 (18 goals and 23 assists) in 53 games. During the 2008-09 season, his first with Calgary, he reached a new career high for goals with 21.

Bourque originally was signed as a free agent by Chicago on July 29, 2004 following a four year career with the University of Wisconsin. He played his first year of professional hockey in 04-05 with Chicago's AHL affiliate in Norfolk where he established team highs in goals (33), assists (27) and points (60). For his efforts, Bourque was named to the AHL All-Star Game and was the recipient of the Dudley "Red" Garrett Memorial Award as the AHL's most outstanding rookie.
