NHL TRADE TRACKER
Mikkelson last played in the NHL last season, which he split between the Ducks and Flames, but the Lightning announced he would be joining the NHL team. The Lightning next play Saturday in Montreal.
The Lightning currently are without defensemen Mattias Ohlund (knee) and Victor Hedman (concussion). They're allowing a League-worst 3.36 goals per game.
Jones had 2 goals and 2 assists in 22 games with the Lightning. He also has played five games with Tampa's AHL affiliate, the Norfolk Admirals.
"Blair is a player that both (coach) Brent Sutter and I are familiar with," said Flames General Manager Jay Feaster. "He is a good-sized centerman (6-foot-2) and someone we feel will fit in well here with our organization."
