The Calgary Flames had a busy night of trades at the 2008 NHL Entry draft Friday at Scotiabank Place.


The Flames acquired forward Mike Cammalleri from the Los Angeles Kings in exchange for the 17th overall pick in this year's draft and their 2009 second round pick. That deal was a three-way trade that saw LA deal the 17th selection and its 28th pick to Anaheim for the Ducks 12th overall pick in this year's draft.

Calgary also dealt forward Alex Tanguay to Montreal for the Canadiens 25th pick.

In Cammalleri, the Flames get a player who notched 34 goals and 80 points just two seasons ago for the Kings. This past season Cammalleri battled injuries and wound up with 19 goals and 28 assists in 63 games.

The 26-year-old Cammalleri has posted 93 goals and 112 assists for 205 points in 283 career games, all for LA.

Tanguay, 28, had 18 goals and 40 assists in 78 games for the Flames last year. In 609 career games with Calgary and Colorado, Tanguay has 539 points (177 goals, 362 assists).

Both Cammalleri and Tanguay have one year remaining on their respective contracts.
