CALGARY, AB -- A busy summer has left Calgary Flames general manager Brad Treliving with one final contract to work out.
The Flames GM is hopeful both sides can come to an agreement, which will allow the 23-year-old to be in attendance when Calgary’s training camp breaks in just over two weeks time.
“Just money and term, that’s all,” Treliving said. “We’ll bang away. We haven’t been able to find something that both sides nod on yet. We’ve still got some time yet. We’re hopeful that everything will get done and Micheal will be in camp.
“No deal (and) he won’t be there. You have to have a contract to be at camp. That’s the one thing that’s real clear.”
The winger, a restricted free agent, is the last of the team’s players without a contract.
Ferland recorded two goals and five points in 27 regular season games for the Flames, but was a standout in Calgary’s playoff run. In nine games in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, the 6-foot-2, 215-pound winger had three goals and five points, and registered a team-leading 50 hits.
In 64 career games in the American Hockey League, Ferland has 13 goals and 33 points.
