The Calgary Flames made an offersheet to Ryan O’Reilly Thursday afternoon.
The contract details: 2 years, 10 million dollars, 2.5 million dollar signing bonus, makes 1 million for remainder of this season, 6.5 million next season.
The Colorado Avalanche matched the offer just hours after it was announced that the Flames had signed O’Reilly to an offersheet. If Colorado would have walked, the compensation would have been a first and a third round pick from the Flames.
