Flames, Flyers make swap
The Calgary Flames and Philadelphia Flyers made a minor swap Monday, as the Flames acquired right wing Mike Testwuide in exchange for Mitch Wahl.

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

I got a chance to play a thousand games and that's pretty special to me. To get a thousand [points], it's a great accomplishment. I'm not going to hide my feelings, I'm proud of that. To do it on a win, do it on a goal, I think it makes it special.
