Deal Done: Flames Finally Sign Brodie


After lengthly contract negotiations, Jay Feaster was happy to announce the signing of 23-year old defenseman T.J. Brodie to a two-year, $2.125 million contract.

The Chatham native suited up in 47 games last season in Calgary, registering 2 goals and 12 assists. Before the lockout concluded, Brodie totaled 20 points in 35 games for the Abbotsford Heat. In the 2011-12 season, Brodie dressed in 54 games, scoring twice and assisting on 54 with the Flames.

Brodie will be a top 3 defenseman this season but the race is very tight. Unless the left-handed shot of Brodie is paired with Dennis Wideman, the youngest d-man will find himself joined with a fell0w left-hander.
