CALGARY, Alberta (AP) - The Calgary Flames have re-signed defenseman Anton Babchuk to a two-year contract extension worth $5 million.

Babchuk had 11 goals and 24 assists and was a team-best plus-14 with the Flames. He added eight points in 17 games with Carolina.

Monday's deal will pay Babchuk $2.5 million a year.

A first-round pick by Chicago in 2002, Babchuk has played 250 career NHL regular-season games, with 34 goals and 62 assists.
