Flames select 6th at the 2016 NHL Draft

by Staff Writer / Calgary Flames

CALGARY, AB -- The Calgary Flames will select 6th overall in the first round at the 2016 NHL Draft in Buffalo, NY on June 24-25.

The Flames currently hold 10 selections in this year's draft.

Calgary acquired an additional second round pick from the Florida Panthers on Feb. 27 in a deal that sent forward Jiri Hudler the other way. The Flames also received a fourth round selection in the 2018 NHL Draft.

The Flames also acquired a conditional second round pick from the Dallas Stars on Feb. 29 in the trade that sent defenceman Kris Russell to Texas. The condition is that if Dallas advances to the 2016 Western Conference Final, and Russell dresses for 50 percent of the games in the first two rounds, that pick will become the Stars' first round selection.

The Flames acquired a conditional four round pick from the Nashville Predators on July 1, 2015 in a deal that sent Max Reinhart, originally draft by the Flames in the third round of the 2010 NHL Draft, to Tennessee. The conditions on this pick were not met so Nashville will retain their fourth round selection.

The Flames acquired a sixth round pick, with goaltender Niklas Backstrom, from the Minnesota Wild on Feb. 29, 2016 in exchange for forward David Jones.

The Flames dealt their 2016 seventh round selection when they acquired Freddie Hamilton from the Colorado Avalanche on Oct. 4, 2015 but the conditions on this pick were not met so Calgary will retain their seventh round selection.

All other remaining selections have been retained by the Flames.
