Flames Sign Kylington to Two-Year Deal, Avoid Arbitration

Another restricted free agent avoids arbitration. 

Hours before the two sides were set to meet in front of an arbitrator to hammer out a new contract, the Calgary Flames and defenseman Oliver Kylington found common ground on Tuesday evening, agreeing to terms on a two-year extension worth an average annual value of $2.25 million. 

The 25-year-old is coming off a breakout year in 2021-22, racking up nine goals and 22 assists for 31 points in 73 games for the Flames while logging upwards of 18 minutes per night in ice time. Kylington truly established himself as an adept puck mover in his first full NHL season, activating Calgary’s wingers and looking quite comfortable on a pairing with Chris Tanev.
