The Calgary Flames head into the Olympic break on a loss. Flames defenceman Kris Russell, however, is leaving with a great big smile on his face.

On the heels of the Flames' 2-1 defeat at the hands of the Flyers on Saturday afternoon in Philly, the Calgary club announced it has signed the puck-moving blueliner to a two-year contract.
