The Calgary Flames on Monday signed forward Kenny Agostino to a two-year contract

The Calgary Flames on Monday signed Yale University forward Kenny Agostino to a two-year entry-level contract. The contract has an average annual value of $900,000.

In 32 games Agostino had 14 goals and 18 assists.

A 2010 fifth-round pick of the Pittsburgh Penguins, the Flames acquired Agostino, along with forward Ben Hanowski and a 2013 first-round draft pick last season in exchange for Jarome Iginla.

In four seasons at Yale, Agostino had 56 goals and 132 points in 134 games and helped the school win the NCAA title in 2013.

Quote of the Day

Obviously there's a lot of expectations around me but it's something I try not to focus on. I'm just trying to go out there, be myself on the ice every day, try to get better, be myself around the guys in the locker room. I think that's what's made me successful and the person that I am.
