Calgary, AB (Sports Network) - The Calgary Flames have signed veteran centerman Craig Conroy to a one-year contract.

The 38-year-old posted three goals and 12 assists in 63 games for the Flames last season and will be entering his fourth straight full season with the team in his second tour of duty with them.

He was acquired from St. Louis during the 2000-01 season and served as the Flames captain for the next two seasons before giving way to Jarome Iginla at the outset of the 2003-04 campaign.

Conroy posted 17 playoff points, including six goals, as Calgary lost to Tampa Bay in seven games in the Stanley Cup Final that year.

The Potsdam, New York native then signed as a free agent with Los Angeles and spent the next season and a half with the Kings before being shipped back to Calgary in January, 2007.

He has totaled 180 goals and 360 assists in 991 games over 14 seasons with the Canadiens, Blues, Kings and Flames. Montreal selected him in the sixth round of the 1990 NHL Entry Draft and he broke into the league in 1994-95 after a four-year college career at Clarkson.

Conroy also represented the United States at the 2006 Olympic Games in Turin, Italy.
