Calgary Flames acquire Kevin Westgarth from Carolina for forward Greg Nemisz

CALGARY - The Calgary Flames acquired right winger Kevin Westgarth from the Carolina Hurricanes on Monday for forward Greg Nemisz.

Westgarth is in his fifth NHL season, and has yet to pick up a point this season in 12 games with the Hurricanes. Overall, he has played 133 career games with Los Angeles and Carolina, accumulating three goals and six assists for nine points and 202 penalty minutes.

Nemisz had five goals and four assists in 32 games this season with the Abbotsford Heat. He will report to the Hurricanes' AHL farm team, the Charlotte Checkers.

The Flames drafted Nemisz in the first round, 25th overall, in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft. He is in his fourth professional season, and appeared in 15 career NHL regular-season games with Calgary, earning one assist.

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
