The Flames have crossed one item off their offseason to-do list, signing 24 year old RFA defenceman Rinat Valiev to a one year deal.

It’s a one year, two-way deal for the league minimum salary of $700,000. As noted by Cap Friendly, there’s a $110,000 AHL salary and a guarantee of $120,000 overall.

The Flames acquired Valiev right before the beginning of the 2018-19 season, coming over alongside Matt Taormina from Montreal in exchange for Brett Kulak. He spent the entire season in Stockton, with the exception of one call-up where he skated in warmups on an emergency basis.

The team still has RFAs Sam Bennett, Matthew Tkachuk, Andrew Mangiapane, David Rittich, and Ryan Lomberg to sign.
