CALGARY -- The Calgary Flames wasted little time signing defenseman Dougie Hamilton.

After acquiring Hamilton from the Boston Bruins at the 2015 NHL Draft on Friday, the Flames announced a multiyear extension for the pending restricted free agent Tuesday.

"I didn’t know I was going to be a Flame until, I guess, today, or when I was traded to them," Hamilton said. "It’s something that your life can change pretty quick and it’s part of the business and everything. For me, I’m looking forward to it. I’ve heard a lot of good things and some text messages from players around the League and stuff like that, that have told me how nice it is there. I’m going to fit in well.

"There’s a lot of things that continue to excite me about the organization, the team and the city. It’s all just building for me. Unfortunately, there’s still a lot of time left in the summer and I can’t go there and start playing right now."

"It was an extremely easy choice," Stafford said Tuesday. "It was the offer I wanted. I'm extremely happy to be coming back. The bottom line is I'm coming back to an organization where I'm extremely comfortable. I love the city. The fans were unbelievable to me."
