CALGARY - The Calgary Flames re-signed defenceman Brett Carson to a two-year deal worth US$1.15 million on Thursday.

The Flames originally acquired the Regina native off waivers from the Carolina Hurricanes on Feb. 28.

"Based on his solid play at the end of last season, we believe Brett can be an every day defenseman for us," Flames general manager Jay Feaster said in a release. "In our end-of-season meetings a number of our top forwards commented on his consistent ability to get the puck to them in transition, and we are confident he will continue to develop his overall game."

In 78 career NHL games, the 25-year-old Carson has two goals 10 assists and 20 penalty minutes.
