Flames GM Darryl Sutter announced on Thursday that the Flames have re-signed Dustin Boyd to a 1-year contract. As per team guidelines, Sutter did not announce details of the contract, but it was later revealed that he will be making slightly less than he did last season.
It appears, that Boyd decided to sign for slightly less instead of holding out and possibly having to sign with another team. He’s played his entire NHL career with the Flames and it appears that he wants to keep the flaming C on his chest for at least another season. Also a contributing factor according to Boyd was that this was a one-way contract, which will keep him in the NHL for the majority of the season. Boyd’s contract will pay him $650,000 US for the 2009-2010 season.
Boyd played 71 games for the Flames last season and scored 11 goals while adding 11 assists.
