Trade: Flames acquire MacDermid from Stars

4 Comments

A day after shipping out veteran forward Tim Jackman, the Calgary Flames acquired 24-year-old winger Lane MacDermid from the Dallas Stars.

Dallas will receive Calgary’s sixth-round pick at the 2014 NHL Entry Draft in exchange.

MacDermid, who came to Dallas in last year’s Jaromir Jagr-to-Boston deal, scored two goals in six games for the Stars last season and signed a one-year, $660,000 extension with the club for 2013-14.

The former fourth-round pick had troubles cracking the Stars lineup, though, only appearing in six of the team’s first 21 games of the year. MacDermid’s last game came in a loss to Colorado on Nov. 1, in which he only played 5:32.

MacDermid will report to Calgary’s AHL affiliate in Abbotsford, according to the Calgary Sun.
