General manager Brad Treliving now only has two out of four potential arbitration negotiations left. Just like Rinat Valiev, the Calgary Flames have re-signed Ryan Lomberg to a one-year, two-way deal worth $700,000.

Lomberg, who has appeared in 11 games for the Flames over the last two seasons, will likely see the bulk of next season down in the American Hockey League. Known more for his truculence and energy, the left winger has totaled 38 goals and 89 points to go with his 351 penalty minutes during his time in Stockton, which began back in the 2015-16 season.
During his time with the Flames, he’s racked up 32 penalty minutes as well as assisting on a Curtis Lazar goal back in the 2017-18 season.
Treliving now only has arbitration dates left for Sam Bennett (July 27) and David Rittich (July 29). He also needs to work out contracts for Matthew Tkachuk and Andrew Mangiapane, who do not have arbitration rights.
