Calgary made a minor move today, claiming former Calgary Hitman Brett Carson off of waivers from the Carolina Hurricanes. Carson is mostly an NHL ‘tweener, having played in just 72 NHL games over the last 4 seasons. The 25-year old is more "veteran" than Mikkelson, but hardly moves in the needle in terms of actual defensive depth for the Flames. He’s a pending UFA, so no real commitment beyond this season.
This may be the only move Calgary makes today folks.
Edited by Robert – As I noted in comments, Carson is a RFA this summer.
