Trade: Aaron Johnson

Calgary obtained defenseman Aaron Johnson on Thursday from the Chicago Blackhawks in exchange for winger Kyle Greentree. Johnson had played in 38 games last season with the 'Hawks but had yet to suit up for a game this season. Last year Johnson notched 3 goals and 5 assists for 8 points in those contests.

A 184 game veteran, Johnson was originally selected in the 3rd round, 85th overall in the 2001 NHL Entry Draft by Columbus. He has 10 goals and 26 assists for 36 points on his career. The Flames will be Johnson's fourth team after the Blue Jackets, Isles and Blackhawks.

We wish Aaron the best of luck in chilly Calgary!
