The waiting game is over for the Calgary Flames and Kris Russell.
Multiple reports have the 28-year-old blueliner headed to the Dallas Stars in exchange for defenseman Jyrki Jokipakka, forward Brett Pollock and a conditional 2016 second round pick.
I'm hearing it's Kris Russell for defenseman Jyrki Jokipakka, forward prospect Brett Pollock and conditional second round pick.— Mike Heika (@MikeHeika) February 29, 2016
Hearing it’s Russell for D Jyrki Jokipakka, F Brett Pollock and a 2nd round pick. #Flames— Pat Steinberg (@Fan960Steinberg) February 29, 2016
Oh, and the pick is reportedly DEFINITELY at least a second rounder.
If DAL makes conference Final, that second becomes a first. Burke will next appear on-air in a Stars jersey.— Elliotte Friedman (@FriedgeHNIC) February 29, 2016

As the hours roll on today, we get a bit more clarity on the direction of the Calgary Flames and the future of defender Kris Russell. Some comments by Flames president of hockey operations Brian Burke earlier today on Sportsnet 960 The Fan have seemingly made things a lot clearer.
