Why not right now?


But in all seriousness if he isn't signed after this season you can start to hover your hand over the panic button. Especially if the Flames wanted to sign him but he decided to go back to college for the 4th year anyways.

If the Flames can't sign Hickey during the off-season I imagine he will be traded.

Did Karri Ramo have his NHL rights extended?

It seems like he was in Europe for a while before he came to Calgary

He was a RFA when he was in Europe.

Does the fact that Hickey is from Alberta make us panic more or less? Not your typical American College player who goes UFA.

Probably less.

Usually when a college draft prospect goes UFA, it is because they feel they have a better opportunity to break into the NHL elsewhere. Or have just as good opportunity elsewhere but can play closer to home.

Based on the top college UFAs in the past years, most choose to sign close to home. (i.e. players from Northeastern USA sign with Northeastern NHL teams, players from Minnesota tend to sign with the Wild, etc). Therefore it should help the Flames case.

The biggest factor will be how good of a relationship the Flames have with Hickey and do they have him convinced that signing with the Flames is one of his best options for his goal of becoming a NHL player.

So far it sounds like Treliving and company have done a good job building relationships with prospects.
