CALGARY — The Calgary Flames signed Dougie Hamilton to a six-year contract on Tuesday.

Hamilton’s deal is reportedly worth $34.5 million. The 22-year-old defenseman will count $5.75 million per season against the salary cap through 2020-21.

The Flames acquired Hamilton from the Bruins Friday for the 15th, 42nd and 57th picks in the draft. He would have become a restricted free agent Wednesday, and would’ve been eligible to sign an offer sheet.

Hamilton declined to comment on his exit from Boston on a conference call set up to announce his deal, preferring to speak about the Flames and the future.

Hamilton is coming off career highs in goals (10), assists (32), and points (42).


The Toronto native was the ninth pick in 2011, which the Bruins got from the Maple Leafs in the Phil Kessel trade.
