Calgary Signs Curtis Lazar For Two Years

Calgary, AB – The Calgary Flames announced today that they have signed forward Curtis Lazar to a two-year contract.

The Flames originally acquired Lazar on March 1st, 2017 in a trade with Ottawa that included defenseman Mike Kostka in exchange for Jyrki Jokipakka and Calgary’s second round pick in 2017. The native of Salmon Arm, BC was a first round pick (17th overall) by the Senators in the 2013 NHL Draft.

Lazar played in four games with Calgary following the trade, recording three points from one goal and two assists. He also appeared in one playoff game with the Flames. Lazar has played 180 regular season games in the NHL and recorded 39 points (13G, 26A) and 36 PIM. The 22-year-old captained the gold medal-winning Team Canada squad at the 2015 IIHF World Junior Championships in Toronto and Montreal.

Term: 2 Years
AAV: $950,000

Video- Tom Wilson Hit On Curtis Lazar

from Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun,

Chris Neil knows what he saw on the controversial hit that sent his centre woozily to the dressing room late in the third period of Wednesday’s game against the Washington Capitals.

“Red,” said the Senators enforcer, who believes Caps winger Tom Wilson deliberately hit Curtis Lazar in the head. “I’m seeing red. You don’t like to see one of your players go down.”

While Neil was given two minutes for seeking retribution, Wilson, who later insisted it was a clean “hip-on-hip” hit, was given a major and match penalty.

“It was the right call,” said Senators coach Dave Cameron, adding that “tomorrow will tell the tale” for Lazar, who has already suffered one concussion this season.
