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.
