Flames acquire Tyler Toffoli in deal with Canadiens
CALGARY, Alberta (AP) — The Calgary Flames acquired forward Tyler Toffoli from the Montreal Canadiens on Monday for two players and two draft picks.

The 29-year-old Toronto native has appeared in 614 career NHL games with Montreal, Los Angeles and Vancouver, recording 182 goals and 188 assists. He won a Stanley Cup with the Kings in 2014.
