The Flames sent out qualifying offers to nine restricted free agents today while not qualifying three of them.

Those qualified were as follows:

  • Sam Bennett
  • Micheal Ferland
  • Jon Gillies
  • Garnet Hathaway
  • Brett Kulak
  • Curtis Lazar
  • David Rittich
  • Linden Vey
  • Tyler Wotherspoon

Those who weren’t qualified are as follows:

  • Alex Chiasson
  • Ryan Culkin
  • Kenney Morrison

By sending out qualifying offers the Flames retain rights to each player should they hit the free agent market. Teams can then send these players offer sheets which Calgary can match, and should they choose not to match then the Flames could get some form of draft pick compensation.

The players who were not qualified now become unrestricted free agents.
