Flames Make Depth Trade On Deadline Day

NHL: Columbus Blue Jackets at Chicago Blackhawks Dennis Wierzbicki-USA TODAY Sports

After Brad Richardson was claimed off waivers by Vancouver, the Flames had $800,000 in cap space open up on the books.

They used that space to acquire Ryan Carpenter from the Chicago Blackhawks. Calgary sent a 5th round pick in 2024 the other way.

Per Wes Gilbertson of the Calgary Sun and Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet:

Carpenter is a 31 year old forward who can play center and right wing, bringing value with a 52.3% face off win percentage. He is a right handed shot as well as a penalty killer. In fact, he lead Chicago in shorthanded minutes played by forwards this season. Carpenter has 11 points in 59 games on the campaign so far.
