CALGARY, AB -- The Calgary Flames announced today they have signed forward David Eddy from St. Cloud University to a two year, two-way contract with the first year being 2012-13.
“When we were informed that David had elected to forego his senior season we immediately informed his advisor that we wanted to make him a part of the Calgary Flames organization,” stated Flames General Manager Jay Feaster. “David is a hard worker who goes to the high traffic areas on the ice and plays the game with grit and passion. He is the type of player who agitates opponents by the way he battles and competes. He is very strong on his skates and tough to move from in front of the net. At the same time, he has good hands and vision and we like his offensive instincts. We are pleased he has chosen to start his professional career with our organization and we look forward to his continued development.”
Eddy, a native of Woodbury, Minnesota, is in his junior year at St. Cloud University (WCHA). He has scored 30 goals and added 35 assists for 65 points and 81 penalty minutes in 92 games over three seasons with the Huskies.
Contract Term: Two year/two-way contract with an NHL AAV of $525,000
