CALGARY — Calgary Flames center Mikael Backlund has been signed to a multiyear contract.

Terms of the deal announced Saturday were not disclosed.

Backlund scored 10 goals and 27 points in 52 regular-season games last season after missing 30 games because of injury.

In 11 playoff contests, the 26-year-old native of Sweden had one goal and one assist — with his lone goal in overtime against the Anaheim Ducks in Game 3 of the first round.

Backlund, who was drafted by the Flames 24th overall in the 2007 NHL draft, set career highs in 2013-14 with 18 goals and 39 points in 76 games. He has played 298 career games with Calgary after making his NHL debut in 2009.
