Flames re-sign netminder in one-year, two-way deal

Hey there, time traveller!

CALGARY -- The Calgary Flames re-signed goaltender Leland Irving to a one-year, two-way contract Friday

The deal is worth US$687,500 if Irving plays in the NHL and $207,500 if he plays in the AHL.

The 24-year-old played seven games for Calgary last season, recording his first career victory in a 3-1 win against Vancouver in December.

A native of Swan Hill, Alta., the six-foot, 175-pound Irving was 1-3-3 with a .912 save percentage and a 3.20 goals-against average for the Flames in 2011-2012. Calgary selected Irving 26th overall in the 2006 NHL draft.

Sens through with Butler

OTTAWA -- Bobby Butler's time in the nation's capital is over.

The Ottawa Senators announced Friday the club has bought out the remainder of the forward's contract, which was set to run through the end of the 2012-13 season.

Expected to fill a spot on Ottawa's top two lines, the Marlborough, Mass., native appeared in 94 games over three seasons but never lived up to expectations. The 25-year-old had 16 goals and 21 assists and was held pointless in three playoff games.

Butler was originally signed by the Senators in March 2010 after a collegiate career with the NCAA's University of New Hampshire Wildcats.

Kings hire ex-Blues coach

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- Stanley Cup champion Los Angeles Kings have hired former St. Louis head coach Davis Payne as an assistant to coach Darryl Sutter, the team said Friday.

St. Louis fired Payne on Nov. 6. Ken Hitchcock took over and led the Blues to the second round of the playoffs, where Los Angeles swept them.

Payne will replace Jamie Kompon, who left for the same job with the Chicago Blackhawks earlier this month.
