Goaltender Eddie Lack was acquired by the New Jersey Devils in a trade with the Calgary Flames for defenseman Dalton Prout on Saturday.

The Devils will be Lack's fourth team since the 2014-15 season. The 29-year-old was 1-2-0 with a 5.29 goals-against average and .813 save percentage in four games for the Flames this season and is 55-53-18 with a 2.60 GAA and .909 save percentage in 140 NHL games with the Vancouver Canucks, Carolina Hurricanes and Flames.

Prout, 27, had no points in four games for the Devils this season. He played his first five NHL seasons for the Columbus Blue Jackets, who traded him to New Jersey on March 1.

Goaltender Cory Schneider has played 29 of New Jersey's 37 games this season, with backup Keith Kinkaid playing in 10.
