The Calgary Flames and Philadelphia Flyers made a minor swap Monday, as the Flames acquired right wing Mike Testwuide in exchange for Mitch Wahl. Testwuide has been assigned to the Abbotsford Heat of the American Hockey League.

Testwuide, a native of Vail, Colo., has played the past three seasons with the Flyers' AHL club, the Adirondack Phantoms. In 76 games during his rookie professional season in 2010-11, the 6-foot-3, 210-pound winger recorded 39 points (18 goals, 21 assists). In 161 career AHL games, he has tallied 70 points and 168 penalty minutes.

Testwuide was captain of Colorado College (WCHA) during his senior year and led the team in scoring. Following four seasons at Colorado College, he signed as a free agent with the Flyers on March 19, 2010.

Wahl, 22, was Calgary's second-round pick (No. 48) at the 2008 NHL Entry Draft. He has spent the majority of the season with the ECHL's Utah Grizzlies, where he tallied 19 goals and 40 assists in 45 games. Wahl also had a goal in six AHL games for Abbotsford.

It is expected that Wahl will be assigned to AHL Adirondack.

Quote of the Day

He stuck his neck out there for us. I don't know what's wrong with him, but you see he was in pain. But he went back in there. He's a tough guy. You've got to give him credit for helping the boys out.
