Kylington Signs with Flames

  The Brandon Wheat Kings' first round pick in this year's CHL Import Draft has signed a three-year, entry-level contract with the Calgary Flames.

  Oliver Kylington was the Flames' second round pick in this year's NHL Draft.

  According to the Calgary Sun, the plan is for Kylington to attend rookie camp, play in the prospects tournament in Penticton and, possibly, main camp in September.

  Signing with the Flames also opens all kinds of door for where the defenceman will play next season.

  Possible landings spot include the Flames, the AHL's Stockton Heat or the Wheat Kings.

  However, according to the Sun, for Kylington to play anywhere in North America other than Calgary, it would have to be with the blessing of his club team in Sweden, with whom he's signed to a contract for the next couple of seasons.
