4The Flames are expected to sign defenceman Jarome iginla and winger Mark Scheiele to a two-year contract, league sources tell NHL.com.
The three-year deal will pay igina $1.9 million annually and Scheifeles $1 million per season through the 2019-20 season.
Iginla’s $5.7-million cap hit for this season and his $3.8-million next year is expected to make him a big asset for Calgary.
Scheifele has played in the NHL for 15 seasons, winning a Stanley Cup with the Edmonton Oilers in 2009 and 2012.
A two-time NHL All-Star, Scheieles has appeared in eight playoff games, scoring a goal and adding four assists.
“We’ve been talking with Jarome for a while,” Flames general manager Jay Feaster told the Calgary Sun on Wednesday.
“He’s an excellent player and he wants to be here and we’re pleased to have him.”
Igalla, 32, had a strong season with the Anaheim Ducks in 2017-18, registering 16 goals and 42 points in 64 games.
He has spent the last four seasons with the Detroit Red Wings, appearing in 109 career NHL games.
In 2017-2018, Igalla helped the Wings reach the playoffs for the first time since 2008-09, posting a career-best 56 points.
Gaudreau, 26, played in all but one game for the Calgary Flames last season, registering six goals and eight points in 36 games.
The 6-foot-1, 206-pound forward has appeared 10 times in the AHL for the Rockford IceHogs and tallied three goals and seven points in seven games this season.
He is expected in Calgary on Wednesday for a medical evaluation, and it is expected that the Flames will offer him a deal worth about $2 million per year.
Cody Franson, who is set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer, was also scheduled to make a return to the Calgary community after spending the last seven seasons with Winnipeg.
Franson has had a rough season, posting eight goals and 22 points in 56 games with the Winnipeg Jets this season, but is expected back in the lineup when the Flames open the season against the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday.
