The Calgary Flames traded left winger Andrew Mangiapane of Toronto, Ontario to the Washington Capitals on Thursday according to TSN. In return, the Flames receive a second round pick in the 2025 NHL Entry Draft. The Capitals become the second National Hockey League team Mangiapane has played for following seven seasons with the Calgary Flames from 2017 to 2024.

Mangiapane had 14 goals and 26 assists for 40 points in 75 games in 2023-24. He was a +7 with 47 penalty minutes, three power-play points, one shorthanded point, 122 shots on goal, five faceoff wins, 33 blocked shots, 89 hits, 24 takeaways, and 29 giveaways.

Mangiapane’s shorthanded point this past season was a shorthanded goal in a 6-3 Flames win over the Anaheim Ducks on April 12, 2024. Mangiapane opened the scoring from defenseman Brayden Pachal of Estevan, Saskatchewan and Yegor Sharangovich at 5:54 of the first period.

This was the second trade the Flames have made already in the 2024 NHL offseason. On June 19, they traded goaltender Jacob Markstrom to the New Jersey Devils for defenseman Kevin Bahl of New Westminster, British Columbia and a first round pick in the 2025 NHL Entry Draft.

In the NHL Draft tonight, the Flames will have four picks in the first two rounds. They will have the ninth, 28th, 41st and 62nd picks. The 28th and 62nd picks come from trades with the Vancouver Canucks and Dallas Stars respectively.
