Hockey is a results-oriented business. After a pair of strong outings for the Calgary Flames at the 2015 Young Stars Classic, defender Rasmus Andersson has been rewarded with an entry-level contract.
Per the CBA, it's a three-year deal for the 18-year-old product of Malmo, Sweden.

The Calgary Flames finish off their three-game sojourn to Penticton, British Columbia and the Young Stars Classic tournament later today. After decent starts in each of their first two games, the Flames have seen diverging results - a 3-1 win over Winnipeg and a 6-3 loss to the Edmonton Oilers (sans Connor McDavid).
But the Flames can go home happy with a victory today against the tournament's hosts, the Vancouver Canucks. Puck drop is around 4:30pm MT and you can stream the game on the Flames website.

This will probably be the most controversial inclusion in our All-Time Flames Team. We debated. We went back and forth. We drafted a team. We mulled it over. We argued a bit.
But ultimately, we needed seven defenders to make a 23-man roster. And when you come down to it, Dion Phaneuf was a pretty damn fine hockey player when he was with the Calgary Flames.
So he's on our team. Here's why.

With the excitement of looming training camps and the promise of NHL hockey just around the bend, these days are the ramp up to a mini silly season where we over-speculate on everything and tend to blow minor things out of proportion.

June 26th and 27th, 2015 were a great few days for the Calgary Flames. The weekend was filled with savvy drafting from the Flames brass that delighted the fan base, especially the analytically-minded folks at FN. But the weekend's finest moment was when 22-year-old stud defenceman Dougie Hamilton was acquired from the Boston Bruins for a 1st round pick and two 2nds. The addition of Hamilton on the Flames blueline took them from a mediocre d-core with two elite pieces in Brodie and Giordano to one of the best d-cores in the league.
