 OTTAWA (AP) -The Calgary Flames were busy at the NHL draft, acquiring center Mike Cammalleri from the Los Angeles Kings in a three-way deal and shipping forward Alex Tanguay to the Montreal Canadiens on Friday night.
The Flames sent their first round pick, 17th overall, to Los Angeles for Cammalleri. The Kings then traded the 17th and 28th picks in the first round to Anaheim for the Ducks' pick at No. 12.
The rebuilding Kings also had the second overall pick, which they used to select defenseman Drew Doughty from Guelph of the Ontario Hockey League.
Cammalleri, who turned 26 last week, will likely play with Flames captain Jarome Iginla next season. Cammalleri had 19 goals and 28 assists in 63 games last season. His best season was 2006-07, when he had 31 goals and 46 assists in 81 games.
``I am thrilled to be coming to Calgary,'' Cammalleri told Rogers Sportsnet. ``I have always wanted to play in Canada. Now I get to live it.''
The Flames dealt Tanguay to the Canadiens, along with their fifth-round pick in this year's draft, for Montreal's first-round selection, 25th overall, and a second-round pick in the 2009 draft.
Tanguay, 28, had a down year for the Flames last season with 18 goals and 40 assists in 78 games. He has 177 goals and 362 assists in 609 NHL games with Colorado and Calgary.
