The Blackhawks bolstered their organizational goaltending depth on Monday by dealing a seventh-round pick in the 2013 draft for Flames goaltender Henrik Karlsson. The team sent Karlsson to Rockford of the AHL.
The 29-year-old Karlsson has played in 26 NHL games over the last two seasons, posting a 5-9-8 record, a 2.79 goals-against average and a .905 save percentage. Last season he went 1-4-2 with a 3.17 goals-against average and a .900 save percentage in nine appearances with the Flames.
The Swedish goaltender was originally signed by the Sharks on Aug. 12, 2009, but was traded to Calgary on June 25, 2010. The pick that the Hawks sent to Calgary was originally obtained from the Ottawa Senators in exchange for winger Rob Klinkhammer on Dec. 2, 2011.
