|(6/24/16) Elliott was traded to the Flames on Friday in exchange for the 35th overall pick in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft and a conditional third-round pick in 2018.|
The conditional pick will head to St. Louis if Elliott, who is an unrestricted free agent after the upcoming season, resigns in Calgary. The Flames were determined to add a starting goaltender and they kicked the tires on Ben Bishop, although the price tag there was apparently too high for their likely. Elliott makes for a nice fallback option, though. He posted a 2.07 GAA and .930 save percentage in 42 games for the Blues this past season and while they don't have the roster depth that St. Louis does, they are just one year removed from making some noise in the playoffs. Clearly the unquestioned starter in Calgary, Elliott should make for a quality fantasy play this upcoming season.
