The Calgary Flames have re-signed heavyweight enforcer Brian McGrattan.

The veteran right-winger inked a two-year deal worth $750,000 per season. McGrattan himself announced the contract Thursday evening via his Twitter account “the big ern is back for 2 years smashin faces@NHLFlames.” Which, yes, basically sums it up.

McGrattan, a 31-year-old from Hamilton, had been plucked off waivers last winter from the Nashville Predators, joining the Flames for his second tour of duty.

In 19 appearances, the six-foot-four, 235-pounder scored three times and fought three times.
