CALGARY - The Calgary Flames have signed centre Josh Jooris to a two year, two-way entry level deal. The deal is worth $832,500 per year in the NHL and $70,000 in the AHL, with a signing bonus of $92,500 in each year. The Burlington, Ont., native has spent the past three seasons with Union College in Schenectady, N.Y. In his final collegiate season he finished fourth in team scoring with 28 points (12 goals, 16 assists) in 39 games. "Josh is a right-shot centre with size and skill," Flames general manager Jay Feaster said in a statement. "During our recent development camp he played an aggressive, up-tempo style and displayed good grit and a high compete level."

Joshua Farris, Jason Brown and Shotaro Omoris 1-2-3 finish Saturday was the first sweep in the mens event by any country. A few hours later, Elena Radionova, Julia Lipnitskaia and Anna Pogorilaya swept the womens podium. It was the fifth time one country had claimed all three of the top spots in the womens event, and third time by Russia. The Americans and Russians split the four titles at junior worlds, and each country won five medals. "To be able to get a medal at my first time here at junior worlds, and to be part of this historic moment with Josh and Jason, is such an honour," said Omori, who had never finished better than fourth at a junior Grand Prix event. The U.S. mens previous best showing had come back in 1987, when Rudy Galindo won the title, Todd Eldredge was second and Cameron Birky was fourth. Johnny Weir and Evan Lysacek were 1-2 in 2001, but the Americans didnt have a third man that year. But Farris, Brown and Omori showed they were up for the challenge after claiming the top three spots in the short program, and they didnt let up in the free skate. Farris (228.32) and Brown (224.15) posted the two highest scores ever at junior worlds, while Omori finished almost 12 points ahead of Jin Boyang of China. Brown won the free skate with a program that was as impressive technically as it was artistically. He landed eight triple jumps including two triple axels, the jump that has long been his downfall. "To be able to come here to junior worlds and do three of them (total) and to land them -- for me, that was like winning," Brown said. "To be able to do it here is truly incredible, and I feel so honoured and proud to have gotten to the podium with these two guys." Farris landed eight triples, four in combination, and received the maximum level fours on his footwork and all three of his spins. His only error was a fall on the landing of his quadruple toe loop, one of only two attempted Saturday. "I went out there to have fun. I knew it was my last junior competition and I was like, Im going to enjoy it and skate my heart out," Farris said. "And thats what I tried to do. The fall on the quad kind of ruined my clean skate that I was hoping for, but I had fun out there." Omori dropped from second after the short to the bronze medal after stepping out of a triple axel. But he received the maximum level fours for all three of his spins, and only thhree other skaters had higher component, or artistic, marks.dddddddddddd "I definitely feel very happy," the 17-year-old said. Nam Nguyen of Burnaby, B.C., posted the ninth best long program to climb from 16th to 12th overall, one spot better than at last years world juniors. Mitchell Gordon of Vancouver landed a triple Axel for the first time in competition and was 16th. Radionova, the junior Grand Prix Final champion, jumped to the top of the podium after being fifth in the short program. She landed six triple jumps, including a triple flip-single loop-triple salchow combination, and had level fours on her footwork and all of her spins. "Yesterday I skated for the first time in this arena and I wasnt really used to it. Today I tried the ice in training and felt more confident at that ice rink," said Radionova, the third straight Russian woman to win the junior title. "I expected to move up," she added. "Maybe not to the first place, but into the top three." Lipnitskaia, last years champion, said nerves got the best of her in the short, where she finished fourth. She went into the free skate with a different attitude, and it paid off. Her spins were exquisite, and she piled up the points with her first two combinations, a double axel-triple toe loop-double toe, and a double axel-triple toe. "I went through the program until the last jump, thinking about nothing and then everything came out together," Lipnitskaia said. "In the footwork, I just wanted to laugh and to cry at the same time." Pogorilaya dropped from second after the short program to third, hurt by slopping landings on several jumps. Samantha Cesario, the leader after the short program, got downgrades on five of her jumps and fell to fourth place. Fellow American Courtney Hicks was fifth. Gabrielle Daleman of Newmarket, Ont., the Canadian senior silver medallist in January, climbed from eighth after the short program to sixth overall. Alaine Chartrand of Prescott, Ont., moved from 12th to eighth overall. It is the first time two Canadians reached the top-10 at the world juniors since 2010 Olympic bronze medallist Joannie Rochette and Lauren Wilson were fifth and eighth in 2002. "My goal coming to this competition was a top-10 so Im really pleased," said Daleman, 15. "It was great to have a clean program and hear my teammates cheering me on." Canada ends the competition with one silver medal earned by Margaret Purdy of Strathroy, Ont., and Michael Marinaro of Sarnia, Ont., in pairs. ' ' '
