With their second round pick, acquired yesterday in a trade with Buffalo, the Flames selected defenceman Patrick Sieloff.

His sales pitch for Flames fans?

"I like to play against the top two lines, a shutdown defenceman. An open ice hitter. I look for that hit but I don't go out of my way for them.

"I'm not a big offensive guy but sometimes I will contribute ... but that's not really my game. It's more playing against the top line and going after those guys."

The Ann Arbor, MI product is headed to the OHL next season, joining the Windsor Spitfires.

"I'm looking forward to that," he said. "I've been up there a couple times now ... Basically, I don't think I could have went to a better organization in the OHL. The way they do things and put guys in the NHL ... it's awesome."

Sieloff has never been to Calgary but is very much looking forward to his first visit which will be this summer during the Flames annual development camp.

"I've heard all about how it's a beautiful place and it's a crazy rink. I've seen it on TV, all sold out and everything. It should be good."
