"We like what Lee Stempniak brings to our line-up, and our team missed him a lot with an injury last year," said Flames GM Jay Feaster. "We believe Lee continues to have strong upside offensively, and he has demonstrated that he can be responsible at both ends of the ice. His skating style and willingness to get in on the forecheck will fit-in nicely with Bob Hartley's up-tempo style, and he provides the coaching staff with more options on the power play."
Stempniak, a native of West Seneca, New York, played last season with the Flames accumulating 14 goals and 14 assists for 28 points in 61 games.
In 517 career games, Stempniak has recorded 129 goals and 275 points.
Originally drafted by St. Louis in the 5th round (148th overall) in the 2003 NHL Draft, he was acquired by Calgary from Phoenix in exchange for Daymond Langkow on Aug. 29, 2011.
The Flames also announced that they have signed forward Blair Jones to a two-year, $1.3 million contract.
Jones, a native of Central Butte, Sask., played 21 games for the Flames last season scoring one goal and added three assists for four points and eight penalty minutes after coming over from Tampa Bay on January 6 in exchange for Brendan Mikkelson.
