The Flames have signed undrafted 21-year-old defenceman Chris Breen to an entry-level deal; the 6'7", 225 lb. blueliner spent five seasons in the OHL. Described as a stay at home defenceman, Breen scored a career-high 4 goals and 14 points this past season, splitting time between the Peterborough Petes and the Erie Otters. He also appeared in one game with the Abbotsford Heat on a try-out basis, accumulating one assist and 4 PIMS.
Breen's addition likely means this will be the end of the road for one or more of the Flames' defensive prospects, with T.J. Brodie and Tim Erixon also looking to begin their pro careers sometime in the near future.
