Comeau to hit free-agent market

The Calgary Herald reports the Flames were hoping to keep forward Blake Comeau, but his $2.5 million price tag appeared to be too expensive for GM Jay Feaster.

On Monday, Feaster did not present the 25-year-old with a qualifying offer. As a result, Comeau will hit the open market as an unrestricted free agent on Sunday.

After splitting the season between the New York Islanders and the Flames last year, Comeau struggled offensively, posting five goals and 10 assists for 15 points in 58 games in Calgary.

However, the speedy forward is still expected to command some interest in the market.

Meanwhile Feaster did tender offers to five restricted free agents, which include forwards Blair Jones, Mikael Backlund, Paul Byron, and Akim Aliu and netminder Leland Irving, while letting minor leaguers Logan MacMillan and Ryley Grantham walk.
