CALGARY - The Calgary Flames re-signed defenceman Brendan Mikkelson to a one-year deal Thursday.
Mikkelson had just one assist in 19 games with Calgary last season after the Flames claimed him off waivers from Anaheim in October.
The six-foot-two, 202-pounder's two-way deal is worth US$721,900.
Mikkelson, 24, has six assists in 86 career NHL games since being drafted 31st overall by the Ducks in the 2005 draft.
The Flames also signed Max Reinhart to a three-year entry-level deal.
Reinhart had 34 goals and 45 assists with the WHL champion Kootenay Ice last season.
Calgary picked the 6-1, 180-pound centre in the 64th overall in the 2010 draft.
