The Calgary Flames traded goaltender Henrik Karlsson to the Chicago Blackhawks in exchange for a seventh round pick in the 2013 NHL Draft on Monday.

Karlsson played 26 games over two seasons with the Flames, recording five wins with a goals-against-average of 2.79 and a save percentage of .905.

Originally signed as a free agent by the San Jose Sharks in 2009, the Swedish netminder was acquired by the Flames the following year for a sixth round pick.

Last season, he had a 2-2 record with the Flames AHL affiliate, the Abbotsford Heat.
