The Calgary Flames on Tuesday signed defenseman Brett Kulak from the Vancouver Giants of the Western Hockey League to a three-year entry-level contract worth $2.45 million.

Kulak, a native of Stony Plain, Alberta, is in his third full season with the Giants. He's tied for eighth in WHL scoring among defensemen with 14 goals and 46 assists for 60 points and 51 penalty minutes in 69 games.

Kulak, a fourth-round pick (No. 105) in the 2012 NHL Draft, was scoreless in four games with the Abbotsford Heat at the conclusion of last season.

Quote of the Day

He's a winner. We want winners here, and he's a proven winner. He's won two Stanley Cups. He's 22 years old and been a big part of it. He's got all the right tools. He's got size (6-foot-1, 204 pounds) and strength. He's exactly what we were looking for. He's going to be a big piece of our team for many, many years to come.

— Blue Jackets GM Jarmo Kekalainen on Brandon Saad, who he acquired in a trade with the Blackhawks on Tuesday
