The Calgary Flames have signed restricted free agent forward Ryan O'Reilly to a two-year, $5 million offer sheet. The Flames would have to send the Colorado Avalanche their 1st and 3rd round draft picks in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft. The Avs have subsequently matched the offer sheet. Brochu's take: A very interesting 24 hours in this "ROR" saga. It's also believed if that had the Avs NOT matched, ROR would have to go through waivers.
