Calgary has added some scoring depth.

Forward Calle Jarnkrok was traded by the Seattle Kraken to the Calgary Flames in exchange for a 2022 second-round pick (formerly Florida's), a third-round pick in 2023 and a seventh in 2024. 

The Kraken will also retain 50 percent of Jarnkrok's salary.

Jarnkrok has 12 goals and 26 points in 49 games this season. A former Nashville Predators forward, Jarnkrok has 237 points in 557 games and is currently in the final season of a six-year deal with an AAV of $2 million.

Of note, Jarnkrok is the cousin of Flames star Elias Lindholm, so it'll be a family reunion of sorts.
