The move means the Ducks are only responsible for half of Hagman's $3 million salary with the Flames paying the other half.
The Flames sent Hagman to Abbotsford of the AHL on Thursday after the 31-year-old winger had just 1 goal and 3 assists in 8 games. But Hagman was subject to re-entry waivers when the Flames tried to recall him over the weekend, allowing the Ducks to swoop in and grab him at half price.
The Ducks have lost 10 of 12 and could use Hagman on the team's second line with Teemu Selanne and Saku Koivu. The three Finns working together could give the team some scoring depth it's sorely lacking right now.
Hagman scored at least 20 goals per season from 2007-10.
We've got to find a way to win a game. He's played well in the minors, now he gets his opportunity. We tried [with Jonathan Bernier]. The way I look at it, you get opportunities and you make the most of it. That's what [James Reimer] did. Now another opportunity is here and Sparks ... you gotta grab it. Is he ready? We'll find out.
