The Calgary Flames have made a pair of deals on trade deadline day, sending forward Lee Stempniak to Pittsburgh and goalie Reto Berra to Colorado.

The Swiss goalie Berra netted a second-round pick in the upcoming draft, with a third-round pick in the same draft the yield from the Penguins.

Stempniak has 146 goals and 184 assists in 616 career regular-season games, with 229 penalty minutes. He potted 31 goals in 160 games in a Flames uniform.

The right-winger is in the final season off a contract that represents a salary cap hit of $2.5 million US.

Berra is in his first NHL season, going 9-17-2 in 29 appearances with an .895 save percentage and 2.95 goals-against average.

The Flames did not deal Mike Cammalleri, who is also a pending free agent.

Also Wednesday, the Flames recalled forwards Corban Knight, Max Reinhart and Ben Hanowski, as well as goalie Joey MacDonald, from the Abbotsford Heat of the American Hockey League.

MacDonald, a veteran of 129 NHL games, is 3-3 with Calgary in seven appearances this season.

The Flames announced that defenceman Derek Smith had been assigned to Abbotsford. He had one assist in 14 games with Calgary this season.
