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.
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.
