The Calgary Flames acquired goaltender Michael McNiven from the Montreal Canadiens for future considerations.

What does it give the Calgary Flames
The Flames felt the need to add more goaltending depth, so McNiven should provide decent organizational depth. He is not expected to see much action at the NHL level.

What does it give the Montreal Canadiens
The Canadiens have added both Samuel Montembeault and Andrew Hammond to their goaltending depth this season, which made McNiven expendable.

Fantasy impact
There is no fantasy impact here, as McNiven should spend most of his time in the AHL down the stretch.
