Markstrom's $6-million yearly income is a substantial raise. His previous agreement in Vancouver was $11 million over three years for approximately $3.6 million, according to CapFriendly.com.

"I seemed like the last two years have actually been where I sort of figured out my game a little bit with the aid of the goalie coaches and coaches," Markstrom said.

"I kind of understand what it takes to be a top objective in this league and the amount of work it takes.

"I seem like I got lots of more levels to develop and reach. I can't wait to do that in a Flames jersey."

Markstrom ends up being the fifth Swede under contract with the Flames. He signs up with forwards Mikael Backlund and Elias Lindholm, and defencemen Oliver Kylington and Rasmus Andersson.

Markstrom and Lindholm are both from Gavle and often golf together.

"Sweden is not the greatest country on the planet, so you either bet them or with them maturing," the goalie stated.

"It's going to be enjoyable to see those men and not bet them. There's a lot of not just Swedish players on the Flames I'm happy to be on the exact same group [with] and not against."

The Calgary Flames likewise signed centre Byron Froese to a two-year deal and consented to terms with Buddy Robinson and Zac Rinaldo on one-year agreements.
