Calgary, AB (SportsNetwork.com) - Forwards Paul Byron and T.J. Galiardi were among five Calgary Flames players that did not receive qualifying offers from the team at Monday's deadline.

The Flames also announced Monday that defenseman Shane O'Brien was placed on unconditional waivers for the purposes of having the remainder of his contract bought out.

Byron posted seven goals, 14 assists and a plus-six rating over 47 games with the Flames last season. Galiardi, a six-year NHL veteran, skated in 62 contests in 2013-14 and recorded four goals and 13 assists.

Both players will now become unrestricted free agents when the NHL's signing period begins Tuesday.

O'Brien was entering the final season of a three-year, $6 million deal he signed in June of 2012, while then with Colorado. The 30-year-old was traded to the Flames by the Avalanche last summer, but spent much of the season in the minors.

Calgary also declined qualifying offers to forward David Eddy, defenseman James Martin and goaltender Olivier Roy.

Forwards Lance Bouma, Joe Colborne, Ben Hanowski and defensemen Mark Cundari and Chad Billins were all given restricted free agent tenders, as was goaltender Joni Ortio.
