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.
I've got a lot of experience and there's a lot of young guys. It's even making me excited a little more. It's kind of a new life. At my age, I feel like I know a lot of things what to do, but I just cannot do it anymore. It's a lot easier to tell them what to do because they've still got the legs and hands to do it. I just know things, but I cannot do them anymore.
