Stajan, Flames close to extension

Veteran center Matt Stajan won't have to worry about trade rumors for much longer, as the Calgary Flames are close to signing him to a new contract extension.

CBC's Elliotte Friedman reported via Twitter on Monday that Stajan is expected to sign an extension with the club later in the day.

Stajan's name has popped up in trade rumors lately, along with teammates Michael Cammalleri, Lee Stempniak, Curtis Glencross, Chris Butler and Kris Russell.

In 41 games with the Flames so far this season, Stajan has registered seven goals and 10 assists for 17 points, though he owns a minus-18 rating.

Stajan is in the final-year of a four-year, $14 million contract.

The native of Mississauga, Ontario, has played in 693 career NHL regular-season games, to date, with the Toronto Maple Leafs and Flames, and has accumulated 116 goals and 212 assists for 328 points.

Stajan, 30, was originally drafted by the Leafs in the second-round (57th overall) of the 2002 NHL Entry Draft.
