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.

They said, 'You're going to love the city. It's smaller than Philadelphia, but you're going to love it. You're going to love the fans. Just watching the playoffs last year, the fans seemed louder there than they did anywhere. I'm really excited about that.
