Morrison shipped to Blackhawks.

TSN reports the Calgary Flames tonight dealt center Brendan Morrison to the Chicago Blackhawks in exchange for minor league defenseman Brian Connelly.

SPECTOR’S NOTE: Morrison has post-season experience, and while he’s probably not going to fill the second line center role, it would allow them to promote Dave Bolland if required into that role. The move also sheds a bit of cap space for the Flames, perhaps in anticipation of other moves toward the trade deadline.
