CALGARY — The Calgary Flames continued to look to the future at the trade deadline by sending Sven Baertschi to the Vancouver Canucks for a second-round pick in this year’s draft.
Baertschi, a 22-year-old forward, has four assists in 15 games for Calgary this year and has spent much of the season with the AHL’s Adirondack Flames.
The 2011 first-round pick has just eight goals and 20 assists in 66 career NHL games.
On Sunday the Flames got a second- and a third-round pick from the Washington Capitals for pending-free-agent winger Curtis Glencross.
Calgary is in third place in the Pacific Division through 62 games.
