The Calgary Flames have picked up winger Alex Chiasson in a trade with the Ottawa Senators. They’ve also signed the 25-year-old to a one-year contract worth a reported $800,000.
Going to the Sens is Patrick Sieloff, a 22-year-old defenseman who played 52 games (2G, 9A) last season for AHL Stockton. He only appeared in one game for the Flames, but he sure made the most of it, scoring the winning goal in his NHL debut on Apr. 9.
Chiasson had eight goals in 77 games last season for the Sens. He had a career-high 13 for the Stars in 2013-14. He was dealt to Ottawa in the summer of 2014 as part of the Jason Spezza trade.
Chiasson’s agent, Kent Hughes, said last month that he expected his client to be moved.
“I think at the end of the day, for a lack of a better term, it’s the lack of a successful marriage, I guess,” said Hughes. “You get to a point where you either decide you’re going to say to an organization, ‘move on’ or you’re going to continue to try, but as you continue to do that, your asset continues to diminish in value.”
