Trade: Flames acquire goalie Poulin from Lightning


The Calgary Flames have acquired goalie Kevin Poulin from the Tampa Bay Lightning, in exchange for future considerations.

Poulin will report to AHL Stockton, which lost goalie Jon Gillies to a lower-body injury last week. Hence, today’s trade.

Poulin was plucked off waivers by the Lightning in September. The 25-year-old has a career .899 save percentage in 50 NHL games, all with the Islanders.
