Calgary Flames agree to deal with first round pick Morgan Klimchuk

The Calgary Flames have agreed to a deal with third first round pick of 2013, Morgan Klimchuk. This means that Klimchuk will be a member of the Flames for at least three years, as per rules of an entry level contract.

According to the Associated Press,

A Calgary native, Klimchuk is in his fourth season with the Regina Pats of the Western Hockey League. He has 12 goals and 17 assists for 29 points in 26 games and has a plus-9 rating.

The 18-year-old left wing was the 28th overall pick in the 2013 draft.

The three-year deal is worth $832,500 with a signing bonus of $92,500 each year and an American Hockey League salary of $70,000 per year. The contract has an average annual value of $925,000.

The Flames currently have a record of 13-15-5, but are close to having another loss, as they are losing to the Boston Bruins 2-0 at the moment.

The team is in 6th place in the Pacific Division, and will have to look for more help if they intend on making a serious push into the postseason.
