The Calgary Flames have acquired forward Brandon Bollig from the Chicago Blackhawks in return for a third round pick, that was later used to choose Matt Iacopelli from the Muskegon Lumberjacks.

Back in May, Bollig was given a two game suspension by the NHL for an illegal hit on Keith Ballard. A below average player from the most recent playoffs, Bollig will see time in Calgary’s bottom six for the majority of his time with the club. He currently holds a $1,250,000 cap hit for the next two seasons.

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:
