Heading into deadline day, the Calgary Flames were thought to be in search of a defenceman to help bolster their top-six as they prepare for the playoffs. That turned out not to be the case, however, as they instead acquired forward Ryan Carpenter from the Chicago Blackhawks in what was their only addition of the day.
Carpenter, 31, is a right shot centre (who also plays wing). He’s listed at 6’0″ and 200 pounds. He’s played 59 games this season for Chicago, primarily in their bottom six, and he has 11 points. He’s not a needle-mover offensively, but his gig will likely be winning face-offs, playing a responsible defensive game, and bringing some experience to the bottom six.
