Published on

CALGARY — The Calgary Flames and Russian defenceman Nikita Nesterov have agreed to a one-year contract.

The deal is worth US$700,000, the NHL club said Friday in a statement.

Nesterov, five foot 11 and 200 pounds, played 132 career NHL games with the Tampa Bay Lightning and Montreal Canadiens from 2014 to 2017.

He totalled nine goals and 24 assists, as well as a goal and six assists in 28 playoff games. The Lightning drafted him in the fifth round in 2011.

Canada, Alberta agree on caribou protection deal that gives them years to take action

Published on

EDMONTON — Canada and Alberta have signed a deal on caribou protection that gives them years to take action but could allow energy drilling to resume right away on some ranges.

The agreement gives the two governments up to five years to design and implement plans for some of Alberta’s most endangered herds.

Meanwhile, it allows for the resumption of mineral lease sales in caribou habitat, if they can be shown to be compatible with conservation.

Alberta Environment Minister Jason Nixon says the deal prevents unilateral action from the federal government and ensures the province stays in control.

The deal is also being welcomed by Alberta’s energy and forestry industries.

University of Calgary law professor Shaun Fluker, who follows environmental issues, says the deal changes little on the ground but could make government efforts to save them more transparent.
