The Flames said Friday the two-year deal carries an average annual value of $900,000
Hanowski, a native of Little Falls, Minn., finished his senior season at St. Cloud State on Thursday night when the Huskies lost to Quinnipiac in the NCAA Frozen Four. The Huskies captain was second on the team in goals with 17 and finished the season with 31 points in 37 games.
Hanowski was chosen by Pittsburgh in the third round (No. 63) of the 2009 NHL Draft.
