CALGARY — The Calgary Flames have signed forward Martin Pospisil to a two-year contract extension.
The deal carries an annual average value of US$1 million.
Pospisil has four goals and seven assists in 34 games for Calgary since making his NHL debut Nov. 4 in Seattle, when he scored in a 6-3 win over the Kraken.
Pospisil’s plus-10 defensive rating ranks fourth among rookies.
He was called up to the NHL club after posting three goals and three assists in six games with the American Hockey League's Calgary Wranglers.
Pospisil, a native of Zvolen, Slovakia, was selected by Calgary in the fourth round, 105th overall, of the 2018 NHL draft.
“We have seen tremendous growth and maturity in Martin’s game since we drafted him in 2018,” Flames general manager Craig Conroy said in a release. "Martin has become a big part of our team, and we are excited to have him under contract for the next two years."
