The second defender taken by the Flames in the 2014 entry draft is large Swedish defender Adam Ollas Mattsson in the 6th round. The 17-year old stands 6'4" and weighs in at 214 pounds, so he's already NHL-sized (which seems to have become a theme for the Flames day-2 activities in Philadelphia). He is described by most scouts as a smart, defensive minded-defender, although the major knock against him seems to be his skating. He doesn't appear to have any offense to his game either.

The Flames have acquired winger Brandon Bollig from the Chicago Blackhawks in exchange for the 83rd overall selection, originally acquired for Lee Stempniak. So that trade is now Lee Stempniak for Brandon Bollig.

The Calgary Flames have completed their second round picks, taking Oshawa Generals forward Hunter Smith with their 54th overall pick. (He's the mean-looking dude with the beard in the background, FYI.)
