One-time Flames forward Todd Bertuzzi has signed a one-year, $1.5M deal with the Detroit Red Wings.

Though no details of the contracts were released, Calgary Flames GM Darryl Sutter announced today that the Flames have signed T.J. Brodie, Greg Nemisz and Keith Seabrook. These will certainly be two-way contracts, allowing the players to move between the Flames and their AHL team in Abbotsford.
Though some would argue that they don’t really need an enforcer, The Calgary Flames have signed tough-guy Brian McGrattan to a 1-year, $550,000 contract.
