Flames Sign Yelle and Davidson
CALGARY (AP) _ The Calgary Flames re-signed center Stephane Yelle and agreed to terms with right wing Matt Davidson on Tuesday.
Yelle, 29, had 10 goals and 15 assists last season, when he was the only Flames player to appear in all 82 games. He earned $1.2 million last season. Terms of the new deal were not announced.
Yelle, who earned two Stanley Cup rings with Colorado, has 168 points in 587 NHL games. Calgary acquired him on Oct. 1, 2002, in the multiplayer trade that sent Derek Morris to the Avalanche.
Davidson, 25, saw limited action with the Columbus Blue Jackets last season, scoring four goals and assisting on five. In 48 AHL games with Syracuse, he had 18 goals and 16 assists.
In 46 career NHL games, the 6-foot-3, 196-pound forward has five goals and seven assists. Davidson was Buffalo’s fifth choice, 94th overall, in the 1995 draft.
