The Calgary Flames have added an element of toughness on Saturday as the team announced the signing of free agent forward Brian McGrattan.  Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

One of the most feared 'heavyweights' in professional hockey, the 29-year old Hamilton native earned 22 penalty minutes in just five games with the Phoenix Coyotes last season.

Originally selected in the fourth round, 104th overall, by the Los Angeles Kings in the 1999 NHL Entry draft, McGrattan broke into the league with the Ottawa Senators in the 2005-06 season.

In 148 career games, McGrattan has two goals, eight assists and 309 minutes in penalties.
