by Staff Writer / Calgary Flames

BUFFALO, NY – The Calgary Flames selected nine players (one goaltender, two defencemen, and six forwards) at the 2016 NHL Draft in Buffalo, New York during the seven-round selection process.

The Flames started their draft weekend on Friday by selecting Matthew Tkachuk with the 6th overall pick before they acquired goaltender Brian Elliott from the St. Louis Blues in exchange for their second round pick (35th overall) in 2016 and a conditional third round pick in 2018.

On Saturday and following the trade, Calgary still owned two second round selections and used them to take goaltender Tyler Parsons with the 54th overall pick and centre Dillon Dubé with the 56th pick. The Flames chose again ten picks later and took defenceman Adam Fox with the 66th overall selection. In the fourth round, Calgary selected centre Linus Lindstrom with the 96th pick and added another centre, Mitchell Mattson, with their fifth round pick (126th overall). The Flames had two selections in the sixth round and chose right wing Eetu Tuulola (156th overall) and centre Matthew Phillips (166th overall), before making defenceman Stepan Falkovsky (186th overall) their final 2016 draft pick in the seventh and final round.
