CALGARY - The Calgary Flames re-signed defenceman Brendan Mikkelson to a one-year deal Thursday.

Mikkelson had just one assist in 19 games with Calgary last season after the Flames claimed him off waivers from Anaheim in October.

The six-foot-two, 202-pounder's two-way deal is worth US$721,900.

Mikkelson, 24, has six assists in 86 career NHL games since being drafted 31st overall by the Ducks in the 2005 draft.

The Flames also signed Max Reinhart to a three-year entry-level deal.

Reinhart had 34 goals and 45 assists with the WHL champion Kootenay Ice last season.

Calgary picked the 6-1, 180-pound centre in the 64th overall in the 2010 draft.
