The Buffalo Sabres have acquired forward Michael Frolik from the Calgary Flames for a fourth-round pick in the 2020 NHL Draft.

The pick was acquired earlier this evening in a trade with the Montreal Canadiens for defenseman Marco Scandella. It was originally owned by the San Jose Sharks.

Frolik has recorded five goals and five assists in 38 games with Calgary this season.  

He is currently on pace to score at least 10 goals for the 10th time in his 12-year career. He has scored at least 10 goals at even strength eight times.

Frolik, 31, has totaled 19 points (7+12) in 47 career NHL playoff contests, appearing in the postseason six times. He played in all 23 playoff games for the Chicago Blackhawks in 2013, culminating in his first Stanley Cup championship. He recorded three goals and 10 points during Chicago's Cup run.

He has represented the Czech Republic in major international tournaments nine times in his career. Most recently, he served as an alternate captain and recorded 14 points (7+7) in 10 games at the 2019 IIHF World Championship.

He was drafted in the first round of the 2006 NHL Draft (10th overall) by Florida.
