A few days after the mega-transaction that sent them to the Calgary Flames, Jonathan Huberdeau and MacKenzie Weegar met with the Alberta press.

Despite the uncertainty of both players about a long-term future with the Flames, they will become free agents without compensation next summer, so there seems to be hope. Both newcomers mentioned that they are open to signing long-term contracts. Wow!

"Flames TV will have great coverage of Jonathan Huberdeau and MacKenzie Weegar's press conference, but here's a look :

"I'm ready to stay in Calgary for a long time." - Huby

"I'm open to signing a long-term deal ... very open." - Weegs"

Regarding his future teammates, Huberdeau seems excited to share a trio with Elias Lindholm. He even thinks he can help him pass the 50-goal mark next season.

"Jonathan Huberdeau on the possibility of playing with Elias Lindholm next season: 'I hope he can score 50 goals with me.'" - Jonathan Huberdeau

Huberdeau went to the Flames with MacKenzie Weegar, Cole Schwindt and a 1st round pick in return for Matthew Tkachuk and a 4th round pick. In 671 games with the Panthers, the Quebecer scored 198 goals and 415 assists for a total of 613 points. He had the year of his career last season with 115 points in 80 games, good for 2nd overall in scoring, tied ironically with former Flames Johnny Gaudreau.
