With a new GM at the helm for the first trade deadline day in what seems like eons, The Calgary Flames didn’t make any major moves, but added a couple players to their roster. Jay Feaster started the day by picking up defenceman Brett Carson off waivers and then traded for for Freddy Modin from the Atlanta Thrashers
Check out the Carson story on flames.nhl.com for some more background. It’s written by the lovely @toriepeterson who knows her hockey.
Details about Modin deal are still very preliminary, but all indications are that Feaster traded a 7th round pick to Atlanta for Modin, who is 36 years old and has amassed 232 goals and 230 assists in 894 NHL games. It’s interesting to note that Modin was with Feaster in 2004 when they won the Cup in Tampa Bay.
It’s not exactly the kind of trade deadline that we Flames fans are used to, but its a refreshing change, and not surprising given the way the Flames are playing recently.
