The Calgary Flames have acquired left wing Lane MacDermid from the Dallas Stars in exchange for Calgary’s 6th round pick in the 2014 NHL Draft, the same pick they had acquired the day before from Anaheim in the Tim Jackman deal.

MacDermid was selected by the Boston Bruins in the 4th round (112th overall) of the 2008 NHL Entry Draft During the shortened 2012–13 season, MacDermid was traded by the Boston Bruins along with prospect, Cody Payne, and a conditional second round draft pick to the Dallas Stars in exchange for Jaromir Jagr. In 20 career NHL games, he has scored a pair of goals along with two assists.

The interesting part to this deal is the fact that MacDermind was placed on waivers just two days ago, yet went unclaimed, just like Matt Kassian and Jussi Jokinen last year before getting traded shortly after. After being a healthy scratch for the majority of the season already, the Flames have decided to send MacDermind to the AHL’s where he already has 516 career PIM in 249 games.

About The Author

Steven took a different route towards his hockey interests. Starting out as a big Habs fan, he started to gravitate towards the more obscure levels of hockey, such as the low level tournaments in Asia, strange club matches between teams most people in North America can’t pronounce, and even some 3am contests between Bulgaria and New Zealand. Aside from his love for strange hockey events, Steven occasionally acts as a mediocre ball hockey goalie following a failed attempt at making it to the NHL as a fourth line house league grinder. Beyond hockey, Steven is an avid racing fan and loves to chat about NASCAR, F1, Indycar, you name it. Oh, and don’t get him started on music. That is, unless you want the whole history of metal and a guitar lesson. Currently, Steven is a credentialed media member with the Mississauga Steelheads of the OHL, as well as with the Oakville Blades of the OJHL. Steven has also hosted the television show "The Hockey House" on TVCogeco in Ontario, as well as a segment under the same with on LeafsTV in Toronto. Home page: http://www.thehockeyhouse.net
