FLAMES SIGN FORWARDS AKIM ALIU AND PAUL BYRON

The Calgary Flames announced today that they have signed forwards Akim Aliu and Paul Byron.

“Akim made tremendous strides in getting his career development path back on track this past season in Abbotsford and he was rewarded for his hard work by receiving an end-of-season recall to Calgary,” said Flames General Manager Jay Feaster.
“In his two games with our Club he showed that he is a very good skater, is willing to play a strong physical game and can also score goals at the NHL level. We really like the tools Akim possesses and the passion he brings to his game. We are confident that, given Akim’s talent and ability, along with his solid work ethic, if he also continues to believe in his coaches and our organizational commitment to him, he will soon realize his dream of becoming a full-time player in the NHL.”

Aliu played in his first two NHL games this season, recording two goals and an assist. Born in Okene, Nigeria, Aliu recorded 10 goals and four assists for 14 points and 59 penalty minutes in 42 games with Abbotsford.
