CALGARY FLAMES & OLIVER KYLINGTON AVOID ARBITRATION, AGREE TO CONTRACT EXTENSION

AUG 2, 2022  (18H14)      JON
The Calgary Flames have re-signed D Oliver Kylington to a two year, $5 million ($2.5M AAV) contract extension, narrowly escaping the trouble of salary arbitration:


Kylington's career struggled out of the gate, managing only 18 points in his first 95 games with Calgary with a -4 rating. But 2021-22 saw a big jump for him. In his first season under Darryl Sutter, Kylington scored 31 points in 73 games and was dynamite for the Flames' blue line.

Calgary has a scary blue line after the Tkachuk trade. On defense, their top-six looks like this:

Hanifin - Weegar
Zadorov - Tanev
Kylington - Andersson

Very respectable, especially considering the pickle Brad Treliving was in less than a month ago. Kylington adds great value in 3rd pair minutes, and it would not surprise if he ended '22-23 as a top-4 defenseman for these Calgary Flames.
