Flames sign Kadri to 7-year deal, trade Monahan to Canadiens


The Calgary Flames have signed forward Nazem Kadri to a seven-year, US$49 million contract.

The Flames also sent forward Sean Monahan and a conditional 2025 first-round pick to the Montreal Canadiens for future consideration in an effort to create a salary cap for Kadri’s contract.

Kadri, 32, was one of the biggest names available in free agency after an all-star season with Colorado that ended with the Avalanche winning the Stanley Cup.

Kadri had 28 goals and 59 assists in 71 games with the Avalanche in 2021-22.

He added 15 points in 16 playoff games, including the overtime winner of Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final against Tampa Bay.

It was his return to action after suffering an injury in Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals after being hit from behind by Edmonton forward Evander Kane.
