Defenseman Deryk Engelland signed a three-year contract with the Calgary Flames on Tuesday. The team did not release financial terms, but TSN reported the contract carries an average annual value of $2.9 million.
Engelland, 32, had a career-best six goals in 56 games with the Pittsburgh Penguins last season, and finished with 12 points and 58 penalty minutes. He was held without a point in seven Stanley Cup Playoff games.
In five NHL seasons, all with the Penguins, Engelland has 13 goals, 47 points and 308 penalty minutes in 243 games.
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.
