The Philadelphia Flyers announced today that they have acquired 5â€™11â€, 180-pound left wing Kyle Calder from the Chicago Blackhawks in exchange for Michal Handzus, according to club General Manager Bob Clarke.
â€œOur greatest depth is at center ice,â€ said Clarke in making the announcement. â€œCalder is a player who we have coveted for a long time. He can score; he can kill penalties; he can play on any of our top three lines.
Calder, 27, recorded 26 goals and 33 assists for 59 points and 52 penalty minutes in 79 regular season games for Chicago during the 2005-06 season. He led the Blackhawks in goals, assists, points and game-winning goals (6) last season. His 26 goals and 59 points were new career highs for a single season.
