Senators Trade Alex Chiasson to Flames for Patrick Sieloff

Patrick Sieloff, a 6’1″, 205-pound blueliner from Superior, Michigan, was the Calgary Flames’ second round selection (42nd overall) in the 2012 National Hockey League Entry Draft.  The 22-year-old began his career in the American Hockey League, playing for the Abbotsford Heat and the Adirondack Flames. He recorded a total of four goals, twelve assists, sixteen points in 102 games played. He also played for the ECHL‘s Stockton Heat, tallying two goals, nine assists, and 54 penalty minutes.  He made his National Hockey League debut this past season, playing in a single game, where he scored the game-winning goal in a Flames’ 2-1 victory over the Minnesota Wild.  Sieloff has represented the United States of America three times on the international level, including winning the gold medal in the 2013 IIHF World Junior Championship in Russia.

Alex Chiasson

In return, the Flames added veteran Alex Chiasson, 25, to their roster.  Before being traded to the Senators in July of 2014, Chiasson played for the Dallas Stars, where he played a total of 86 games, totaling nineteen goals and 23 assists.  In Ottawa, Chiasson would play 153 games and would score nineteen goals and have 21 assists.  Chiasson has played in a total of 10 Stanley Cup Playoff games (Six with Dallas and four with Ottawa), and would total one goal and one assist.

Calgary would go on to sign Chiasson to a one-year contract extension immediately after the trade as well.
