The Calgary Flames are trading veteran defenseman Chris Tanev to the Dallas Stars for a second-round pick, a conditional third-round pick and prospect Artem Grushnikov, according to league sources. The Flames are retaining 50 percent on Tanev’s cap hit and salary.

Tanev was in high demand as an effective shutdown defender and is the No. 2 player on The Athletic’s latest trade board.

The 34-year-old signed as a free agent with the Vancouver Canucks in May 2010 and spent 10 seasons with the Canucks before signing a four-year, $18 million contract with the Flames in 2020.

Tanev notched 14 points with the Flames this season. He has one goal and 13 assists through 56 games played in 2023-24.
