Huska has spent the last 4 seasons in the Flames farm system with Adirondack and then with the Stockton Heat. Ward spent the last 3 seasons in NJ with the Devils and has Stanley Cup pedigree as he was with Claude Julien in Boston when they won the Cup back in 2011. Ward’s NJ Devils were 10th in the NHL in PP% last year at 21.4%. The Flames meanwhile struggled to find the net with the man advantage, finishing 29th in the league at 16.0%.
