In more Free Agency news, the Calgary Flames have signed forwards Alan Quine and Tyler Graovac one-year, two-way contracts.
(To the tune of All Star by Smash Mouth) Well, the news starts coming and it don’t stop coming. Pretend it worked. In more Free Agency news, the Calgary Flames announced that they have signed forwards Alan Quine and Tyler Graovac each to one-year, two-way contracts.
C/W Alan Quine
Alan Quine was signed with a cap hit of $700,000, $400,000 in minors salary. He was playing in the New York Islanders organization over the past four season. Starting off between the AHL and ECHL affiliate in his first year in 2013-14 before moving on to a permanent spot on their AHL team, the Bridgeport Sound Tigers, with the occasional call up to the Isles.
In 2016-17, he found himself with a full-time role on the Islanders, playing in 61 games and putting up five goals and 18 points.
Last season, Quine was dealing with an injury and his season was cut short. He played in 21 games with the Isles and four with Bridgeport. In 21 games with the Isles, he had just three assists.
The good thing about Quine is that he can basically play on any forward position. He most likely will spend the majority of his season with the Stockton Heat, but you never know who will get injured or if he’ll end up shining with the Heat.
C/LW Tyler Graovac
Tyler Graovac was signed with a cap hit of $650,000, $350,000 in minors salary. He played in his first season with the Washington Capitals organization last season after spending four years with the Minnesota Wild. He, like Quine, usually goes back and forth between the AHL and the NHL, but he’s never had a full-time NHL role.
Last season, Graovac played in just five games with the Capitals and played in 53 games with the Hershey Bears, where he had 12 goals and 29 points. Like Quine, he’ll most likely be spending most the season with the Heat.
But again, you never know.
