The Calgary Flames announced today that they have signed defenceman Mark Cundari to a one-year, two-way contract worth $600,000.

In four games with the Flames this season, he scored one goal and added two assists for three points. Cundari was traded to the Calgary Flames in an April 1, 2013, deal by the Blues, along with goaltender Reto Berra and a first round draft pick, in exchange for defenceman Jay Bouwmeester. Cundari, who was recovering from a wrist injury at the time, was assigned to the Abbotsford Heat, Calgary’s AHL affiliate.

The Flames recalled Cundari to the NHL late in the 2012–13 season. He made his NHL debut on April 21, 2013, and scored his first NHL goal against Minnesota Wild goaltender Niklas Bäckström.  In 58 games this season in the American Hockey League, he scored seven goals and added 21 assists for 28 points while accumulating 80 penalty minutes.

About The Author

Steven took a different route towards his hockey interests. Starting out as a big Habs fan, he started to gravitate towards the more obscure levels of hockey, such as the low level tournaments in Asia, strange club matches between teams most people in North America can’t pronounce, and even some 3am contests between Bulgaria and New Zealand. Aside from his love for strange hockey events, Steven occasionally acts as a mediocre ball hockey goalie following a failed attempt at making it to the NHL as a fourth line house league grinder. Beyond hockey, Steven is an avid racing fan and loves to chat about NASCAR, F1, Indycar, you name it. Oh, and don’t get him started on music. That is, unless you want the whole history of metal and a guitar lesson. Currently, Steven is a credentialed media member with the Mississauga Steelheads of the OHL, as well as with the Oakville Blades of the OJHL. Steven has also hosted the television show "The Hockey House" on TVCogeco in Ontario, as well as a segment under the same with on LeafsTV in Toronto. Home page:
