Flames Acquire G Daniel Vladar from Boston

Calgary’s second trade of the day



The Calgary Flames have made their second trade of the free agent frenzy, picking up goaltender Daniel Vladar from the Boston Bruins in exchange for a 2022 3rd round pick. This is the Flames second move of the day after sending a 3rd to Chicago for Nikita Zadorov.

Vladar will be turning 24 next month and comes to Calgary with just five NHL games under his belt, but a wealth of experience developing through the Bruins farm system after originally being drafted by the club in 2015.

He went 2-2-1 in his five NHL games last year, but also had a .923 in the AHL. His 2019-20 AHL season was particularly impressive, going 14-7-1 with a .936 SV%.

Vladar joins the Flames entering the second year of his three year ELC, where is making the league minimum of $750,000 which provides some nice cap flexibility for the Flames.
