The Calgary Flames’ farm team, the Abbotsford Heat of the American Hockey League, signed Steve Begin and Carter Bancks to one-year deals on Wednesday.

Begin, 35, played 36 games for the Flames last season, producing four goals and four assists, along with 22 penalty minutes. He was the club’s nominee for the Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy.

Bancks will enter his fifth season with the Heat. The winger scored five goals and seven assists in 59 games there last season and earned a late season call-up to the Flames for the first two NHL games of his career.
