Floundering Flames trade Jackman to Ducks for sixth-round pick in 2014

CALGARY - The Calgary Flames have traded forward Tim Jackman to the Anaheim Ducks for a sixth-round pick in the 2014 draft.

Jackman has one goal in 10 games this season. He's a veteran of 400 career NHL games.

Moving the 32-year-old fits into the Flames' rebuilding plan as they attempt to get younger.

To fill Jackman's roster spot, Calgary called up centre Blair Jones from the Abbotsford Heat of the AHL. The 27-year-old is Abbotsford's leading scorer.

The Flames are 1-5-2 in their past eight games.

Quote of the Day

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
