The Calgary Flames have signed Colorado Avalanche center Ryan O'Reilly to an offer sheet, the team announced Thursday.
O'Reilly is a restricted free agent and has not been able to come to terms on a deal with the Avalanche since the lockout ended last month. The disgruntled 22-year-old led the Avalanche in scoring last year (18 goals, 37 assists) but hasn't played a game with Colorado this season.
The Flames reportedly offered O'Reilly a two-year, $10 million contract. The Avalanche will have seven days to match Calgary's offer or receive draft picks as compensation
"The Avalanche organization was notified of the offer sheet earlier this afternoon," the team said in a statement. "Per the Collective Bargaining Agreement, in the case of an offer sheet, NHL teams have seven days to either match the offer or accept compensation. The Avalanche will have further comments when a decision is made."
