“We’ve made offers to the agent for TJ Brodie,” said Flames GM Jay Feaster. “And we’ll continue trying to get TJ signed.
Across the league however, young defenseman of Brodie’s status are receiving long term, multi-million dollar contracts, however, Feaster stated that the club has only offered Brodie one- and two-year contracts.
Although Brodie’s signing was called a “priority” by Feaster, it appears the club’s general manager is not willing to give the swift skating puck mover, a long term contract extension.
Brodie, who is 23, scored 2 goals and added 12 assists last season for the Calgary Flames. More importantly, Brodie played the third most minutes among Flames’ defenders, meaning he is due a large raise over the $741,666 he made last season.
Brodie will remain property of the Calgary Flames unless he is traded or another team enters an offer sheet for the blueliner. Brodie however, will likely sign a deal with the Flames in the coming weeks.
