Andrew Mangiapane Re-Signs with Calgary Flames
Over his five-year NHL career, Mangiapane has only played for the Calgary Flames. He has put up 78 goals and 54 assists for 132 career points in 260 career games. He was originally drafted in the sixth round, 166th overall of the 2015 NHL draft by the Flames. For the entirety of his career, he has risen through the ranks in the Flames organization. This past season that hard work paid off, as he had his break-out season. In 82 games played, Mangiapane scored 35 goals and tallied 55 points. This was a new career-high for him in goals, assists, and points. The winger is coming off a two-year, almost 2.5 million dollar contract.
What He Brings to the Table
The 26-year-old forward is best known for his excellent speed. He is able to move the puck well and quickly. Additionally, his offensive instincts are the driving force for his success. Mangiapane knows where to be and is able to create plays in situations others can’t. He is especially productive when there is a man advantage; scoring eight power-play goals this past season. Mangiapane also has the ability to show up in big moments. He tallied eight game-winning goals this past season for his team.
Despite being five-foot-ten-inches, Mangiapane has been able to add a physical element to his game. He laid 73 hits during the 2021-2022 season. Over his time with the Flames, it appears as if he has finally transitioned into a well-rounded player. As well as finding his game and what works for him. His speed and offensive hockey IQ will continue to make him successful in years to come. Big things are expected from this Canadian.
