Cloquet, MN (Northland's NewsCenter) --- Former C-E-C Lumberjack Clay Wilson signed last week a two-year deal with the Calgary Flames, worth $525,000 per season.

He had played in the NHL with Columbus, Atlanta, and Florida before signing with the Flames.

Before turning pro, Wilson played his college hockey in the WCHA at Michigan Tech under the tutelage of head coach Mike Sertich.

He played 38 games as a freshman for the Huskies, scoring 12 points in his rookie campaign.

The former Lumberjack's first NHL goal came back in 2007 with the Columbus Bluejackets against the Chicago Blackhawks. In 31 NHL games, Wilson has tallied four goals and four assists.
