The Calgary Flames have signed centre Ben Street to a two-year, two-way contract.

Street spent the past two seasons with the Wilkes-Barre Scranton Penguins of the AHL. The former ECHL rookie of the year recorded 27 goals and 57 points in 71 games last season.

"We are very pleased to add Ben to our forward group and organization," Flames GM Jay Feaster said in a team statement. "He has been a prolific scorer at the AHL level and he has a history with Troy Ward. Both Troy and our scouts view Ben as a legitimate NHL prospect and we look forward to helping him achieve that goal."
