CALGARY, Alberta (AP) -- The Calgary Flames have re-signed forward Brendan Morrison to a one-year deal.

The 35-year-old Morrison will make $1.25 million next season, the team announced Friday.

Morrison's 2010-11 season ended in March because of a knee injury that will keep him out of action through the start of 2011-12.

The veteran had nine goals and 34 assists in 66 games with Calgary last season.

Flames general manager Jay Feaster said, "We are a better and deeper team with Brendan back in the fold."

Morrison has 196 goals and 394 assists in 895 career games with New Jersey, Vancouver, Anaheim, Dallas, Washington and Calgary.
