Calgary GM Jay Feaster is taking care of one of their promising young defensemen.

The Flames announced they’ve re-signed restricted free agent T.J. Brodie to a two-year, $4.25 million deal. That works out to a $2.125 million cap hit over that time.

Last season, Brodie emerged as one of Calgary’s more trusted blue liners playing an average of over 20 minutes per game. Eerily enough, he equaled his offensive output from the previous year last season in seven fewer games with two goals and 12 assists.

At age 23 he’s easily the Flames’ youngest defenseman and they’re more than happy to see him improve his game. That alone may not be enough to stop some from questioning why he got such a juicy raise ($1.2 to nearly $2 million) coming off his entry-level deal.
