Flames sign centre Jooris to two-year, two-way, entry-level contract

CALGARY - The Calgary Flames have signed centre Josh Jooris to a two year, two-way entry level deal.

The deal is worth $832,500 per year in the NHL and $70,000 in the AHL, with a signing bonus of $92,500 in each year.

The Burlington, Ont., native has spent the past three seasons with Union College in Schenectady, N.Y. In his final collegiate season he finished fourth in team scoring with 28 points (12 goals, 16 assists) in 39 games.

"Josh is a right-shot centre with size and skill," Flames general manager Jay Feaster said in a statement. "During our recent development camp he played an aggressive, up-tempo style and displayed good grit and a high compete level."

Quote of the Day

That was something I've been dreaming of, something I've told myself before the third period I was going to do ... It was an amazing feeling. It's hard to describe. I didn't believe it went in at first but when I saw all the reaction and all the fans going crazy and my teammates going crazy, it's just an unbelievable feeling. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know whether to jump or just skate and do a Theo Fleury. I don't think I'm the same caliber player he is so I couldn't do it.
