Flames Re-Sign Boyd

The Flames announced on Thursday that they re-signed forward Dustin Boyd to a new deal. Boyd's deal is reportedly a 1-year pact worth $650,000, according to Boyd, 23, was a restricted free agent this summer and will be again when his deal expires next summer.

In 2009, Boyd finished with 11 goals and 11 assists in 71 games, which were career-highs for the young forward. He'll now be entering his third full season with the Flames and will look to be a more prominent fixture in the line-up, which has seen some changes.

With his low cap number, Boyd doesn't hurt the Flames against the ceiling, keeping room for another few small contracts to earn their way into the line-up.
