Calgary Flames sign prospects Connor Mackey, Colton Poolman

The Calgary Flames have signed a pair of college free agents.

The club announced the signing of Minnesota State University rearguard Connor Mackey, the top college free agent listed by TSN.

Mackey, 23, scored seven goals and 24 points in 36 games with Minnesota this year. The 6’2.5″, 205 lb. left-shot was named to the WCHA first All-Star team this year.

He signed a one-year deal with the Flames.

Calgary has also locked up another defensive prospect in 24-year-old left-shot Colton Poolman. Captain of the University of North Dakota hockey team, Poolman scored four goals and 17 points in 31 games this season.

Much like Mackey, Poolman signed a one-year deal, the Grand Forks Herald reported.

Poolman is the younger brother of Winnipeg Jets defenceman Tucker Poolman.
