Steve Begin agrees to 1-year deal with Flames

Bruce Bennett

The Calgary Flames have extended Steve Begin a one-year offer to join the team.

The Calgary Flames have signed forward Steve Begin to a one-year, two-way contract worth $525,000, according to a post on the team's twitter account on Friday afternoon.

Begin had been extended a professional tryout contract in August and was attending camp this past week with the Flames. Apparently, his efforts during that time were impressive enough for the team to keep him around.

Since he is signed to a two-way contract, the Flames will have the flexibility to move him to the American Hockey League without the use of waivers. If the team ultimately decides to take that course of action, his salary would no longer count against the salary cap.

Begin was originally chosen with the No. 40 overall selection in the 1996 NHL Draft by the Flames. He has played in 488 career regular season games and spent time with the Boston Bruins, Dallas Stars, Montreal Canadiens and Nashville Predators.

The 34-year-old last played in the NHL during the 2010-11 season with the Predators.
