Flames Acquire and Sign T.J. Galiardi

The Calgary Flames have acquired winger T.J. Galiardi from the San Jose Sharks for a 4th-round draft pick in the 2015 Draft. Jay Feaster quickly signed Galiardi to a one-year, $1.25 million dollar contract.

“We are thrilled to add a young player with T.J.’s size and versatility to our lineup,” Flames general manager Jay Feaster said. “He can play left wing or center, he competes hard and is a very good energy player.”

The 25-year-old finished the 2012-13 season with 16 points in 47 games and helping the team to the second-round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

He stands at 6-2 and weighs in at 190. Galiardi was drafted in the second-round of the 2007 NHL Entry Draft by the Colorado Avalanche.

Galiardi, a Calgary native, started in the Alberta Junior Hockey League with the Calgary Royals and earned an NCAA scholarship to Dartmouth College. He left Dartmouth after the 2006-07 season and headed home to play in the WHL for the Calgary Hitmen where he recorded 94 points in 86 games.
