The Flames have signed Yale forward Ken Agostino to a two-year contract.

The final piece of the Jarome Iginla trade is now officially under contract with the Flames.

Ken Agostino, a former fifth round selection of the Penguinshas signed a two-year contract with the Flames worth an annual average value of $900,000. He was 14-18-32 in 33 games for Yale this season (second in team scoring), finishing his collegiate career with 56 goals and 132 points in 134 games.

By signing his first professional contract, Agostino's college hockey career has officially ended. Agostino's Yale Bulldogs fell to the Quinnipiac Bobcats in the ECAC quarterfinals. The Bobcats took both games by scores of 6-2 and 5-3. Agostino had one assist in the second game.

Yale defeated Quinnipiac last season en route to capturing its first ever Frozen Four title. Agostino assisted on the Bulldogs' third goal in their 4-0 victory.

Agostino was one of three pieces involved in the Iginla trade, including Ben Hanowski (12-15-27 in 51 games for the Heat this season; 0-2-2 in seven games for the Flames) and a first round pick (Morgan Klimchuk, who previously signed: 30-44-74 in 57 games for the Regina Pats [and their leader in points per game], the WHL's East Division champions this season).
