The Calgary Flames gave a boost to its offence on Friday, acquiring forward Kristian Huselius from the Florida Panthers for defenceman Steve Montador and centre Dustin Johner.

Huselius, who scored 43 goals in his first two NHL seasons, was passed over by the league's 29 other teams after the Panthers placed him on waivers earlier this week.

The 27-year-old winger, with just five goals and eight points in 24 games, is making $1.216 million this season.

Montador, 25, has played in 94 career NHL games, registering nine points and 201 PIM. He appeared in 20 of the Flames' 26 contests during the 2004 playoffs scoring one goal with two assists, averaging more than 17 minutes of ice time with a plus-4 rating. Montador is making $450,000 this season.

Quote of the Day

"While all of the stakeholders in our league agree that hitting is an important part of the essence of the NHL game, all were also unanimous in the belief that where a player deliberately targets an opponent's head, the conduct should be subject to review and the possible assessment of supplemental discipline."

- NHL Executive Vice President and Director of Hockey Operations Colin Campbell, discussing the 20-game suspension handed down to Philadelphia Flyers prospect Steve Downie.
