Calgary Flames Rumors: Latest On Elias Lindholm Contract Talks

According to NHL insider Elliotte Friedman, star center Elias Lindholm and the Calgary Flames have not started serious contract extension talks yet.

Lindholm recently noted that he is open to the prospect of signing an extension with the Flames. However, with this news from Friedman, it appears that an extension is not close just yet. 

Lindholm has been one of the big names in the rumor mill this summer. It is understandable, as he is about to enter the final season of his contract and can leave in free agency next summer.

It will be interesting to see when the Flames and Lindholm begin to have serious extension talks. They are likely to pick up before the start of the season.

In 80 games this past season with the Flames, Lindholm posted 22 goals, 64 points, and a plus-6 rating. Let's see what he can do during his contract year in 2023-24.
