CALGARY, Alberta - In an effort to keep a near-championship team intact, the Calgary Flames re-signed tough guy Chris Simon on Friday.
 

Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Simon, 32, came over from the New York Rangers at the trade deadline and helped the surprising Flames reach the Stanley Cup Finals. He had three goals and two assists in 13 regular-season games for Calgary and five goals and two assists in 16 playoff contests.

The 6-3, 232-pound left wing combined for 17 goals - his best total in five years - and 250 penalty minutes in 2003-04. He has 1,596 penalty minutes in 605 career games, to go along with 125 goals and 128 assists.

Under the leadership of coach Darryl Sutter and with Jarome Iginla blossoming into one of the best players in the NHL, the Flames made the playoffs for the first time since 1996 and came within one win of their second Stanley Cup title.

The Flames also signed free agent center Byron Ritchie, who had five goals and six assists in 50 games for the Florida Panthers this past season.

He's turned into quite a power forward who can do alot more than just drop the gloves.

The days of having a guy on your roster just because he can fight are over. You've got to be able to contribute as well.

Yeah can contribute and such, but thats not to say that he doesn't drop the gloves. He was 2nd in the league in PIMs last year.
