Sam Bennett remains an unsigned restricted free agent.
Bennett completed his entry-level contract at the end of the 2016-17 campaign. He has generated 63 points through the first 159 games of his NHL career. Bennett notched 13 goals and 13 assists in 81 matches last season. The fourth overall pick in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft has plenty of potential, but could receive a "bridge" contract to prove himself first. The Flames also still have to sign fellow RFAs Brett Kulak and Tyler Wotherspoon.
