Calgary, AB -- The Calgary Flames announced today that they have acquired and signed forward T.J. Galiardi from the San Jose Sharks in exchange for the Flames fourth round pick in the 2015 NHL Draft.
“We are thrilled to add a young player with TJ’s size and versatility to our line-up,” said Flames General Manager Jay Feaster. “He can play Left Wing or Center, he competes hard, is a very good energy player, and he is only 25-years old. The fact that he is from Calgary, lives here in the off-season and played for the Hitmen is an added bonus, as he is yet another player who is excited to be part of our program going forward.”
TSN, Sportsnet and Pierre LeBrun all reporting bits of the trade.
Will finalize when all details are in.

This morning’s salute to the top three stars from last night’s NHL contests:
***Cheers to Jaroslav Halak of the St. Louis Blues, who stopped 24 shots in Nashville to top the Predators, handing the home club their first regulation loss of the season. This was Halak’s second consecutive shutout, after blanking Pittsburgh on Saturday and the former Montreal Canadien now boasts a scoreless streak of 151:15 dating back to a second period goal by Chicago’s Brent Seabrook last Friday. So far this year, Halak is certainly proving that last season’s playoff success was no fluke, with a 1.55 goals-against average and a .939 save percentage.

The only video I could find of the Wayne Simmonds butt-end on T.J. Galiardi last night. If you go full screen, you can see it much better.
