Scott Hannan Signs With Calgary

Calgary, AB – The Calgary Flames announced today the signing of defenseman Scott Hannan.

“Throughout the summer we have consistently said that we were not yet finished adding to our hockey club, and while we have great confidence that one of our second-year prospects or quality depth defensemen we added this off-season will step-up and make our hockey team in training camp, we have also recognized the need for some veteran leadership at that position,” said Flames General Manager Jay Feaster. “Scott not only brings a wealth of experience to our blue line, but he also brings a great deal of knowledge about the Western Conference in general and our Division in particular. Just as importantly, he has demonstrated his commitment to our organization and his desire to be a part of our team by agreeing to a contract that enables us to fit him under the salary cap.  We are very pleased to add him to the Flames family, and we look forward to his contributions to our success both on and off the ice.”

Not that different than the DET/Commodore signing honestly.  High reward/low risk.  Hanna’s stock has plummeted, but he can maybe add something.

We’ll see if either of them work out.
