The Calgary Flames have signed forward prospect Matthew Coronato to a three-year, entry-level contract, the team announced Sunday.

Coronato recently finished his sophomore season at Harvard, which was eliminated in the first round of the Frozen Four bracket at the hands of Ohio State earlier this week.

Calgary drafted Coronato 13th overall in 2021. The New York native posted 36 points in 34 games in each of his collegiate seasons.

The Flames are currently outside the Western Conference playoff picture with eight games remaining, needing to close a four-point gap to catch the Winnipeg Jets.
