Three Calgary Flames Prospects Signed Last Week: Wolf, Kinnvall & Pettersen

The Calgary Flames announced that they had signed three young prospects to entry-level contracts. In this post, I’ll report these signings.

Prospect One: Dustin Wolf Signs a Three-Year Contract

This past week, young goalie prospect Dustin Wolf signed a three-year, entry-level contract with the Flames on Friday. He had an amazing 2019-20 season and posted a record of 34-10-2 with the WHL Everett Silvertips. Although he’s young, there’s a decent chance that Wolf might get a chance to earn a position with the team in the 2020-21 training camp.

Right now, the only goalie that’s signed going into the 2020-21 season is David Rittich – so far, Cam Talbot has not signed and any negotiations probably won’t happen until after some decision is made about the current season.

However, it’s more likely that Wolf will play at least another season in junior hockey before he jumps into the mix with the Flames. Better perhaps that he gets full-time work in the crease with the Flames signing an older, more experienced back-up goalie to sit most of the games in the press box.

Prospect Two: Johannes Kinnvall Signs a Two-Year Contract

Last Wednesday, young defensive prospect Johannes Kinnvall signed a two-year, entry-level contract with the Flames. However, Flames fans are not likely to see Kinnvall any time soon. He’ll probably spend the 2020-21 season in Sweden with HV71 before coming to Canada in 2021-22.

This past season, the 22-year-old scored 11 goals and 29 assists (40 points) in 51 games. So, he has an offensive touch. If he can bring that scoring ability to the Flames, there’s a chance he will find a spot on the team’s NHL roster as early as the 2021-22 season.

Prospect Three: Mathias Emilio Pettersen Signs a Three-Year Contract

Last Wednesday, Mathias Emilio Pettersen signed a three-year, entry-level contract with the Flames. He spent the past two seasons with the University of Denver and has scored 19 goals and 46 assists in his time there.

It was reported, however, that the young center won’t return to his collegiate team for his third (his junior) season. He was chosen during the sixth round (167th overall) of the 2018 NHL Entry Draft. He’s likely to play with the AHL Stockton Heat during the 2020-21 season and will get a better chance to earn a roster spot for the 2021-22 season.
