Amidst a flurry of rumours, the Calgary Flames officially signed LW Ken Agostino, the club announced this morning.
The deal is a two-year pact worth an average value of $900,000. Agostino turns 22 in April, but for CBA purposes he’s already 22, so a two-year deal is all he can sign. (EDIT: It’s similar to Emile Poirier’s CBA age – he turned 19 in December, but would’ve been 20 for CBA purposes if he signed in 2014.)
Acquired in the Jarome Iginla deal roughly a year ago (along with new Flames teammate Ben Hanowski and a draft pick that became Morgan Klimchuk), Agostino was a leader with the Yale Bulldogs. The political science major put up 132 points over 134 games with Yale, including winning an NCAA Championship last year.
For the curious and you jersey fanatics, Agostino wore #94 in development camp.
