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.

It means a lot to us, we're very excited. We're looking to continue to build on [our] top core talent of young players. It's just a great opportunity for us to really build high.
