Calgary Flames Acquire Goaltender Brian Elliott From St. Louis for pick #35

The Flames acquired the Blues veteran netminder for pick 35 in this draft, and a 2018 3rd round pick if the Flames re-sign him. He has performed well behind the Blues defense in recent years, but has never played more than 55 games back in 2009-10 with Ottawa, and has only played 181 games in the last 5 years. The Flames will need to rely on a quality backup, whether that is Joni Ortio, or someone else.

Elliott is only due to earn 2.5 million dollars next season, which could allow the Flames to make an addition through UFA.
