Flames sign defenseman Commodore
Share This Story
Commodore appeared in just 12 regular-season games for the Western Conference champions last season. He did notch two assists during Calgary's magical run to the Stanley Cup Finals. The Flames shocked the NHL world by battling through the playoffs until losing in seven games to Tampa Bay in the finals. The 6-foot-4, 230-pound native of Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta played in 37 games with the Lowell Lock Monsters of the AHL and registered five goals and 11 assists. Lowell is Calgary's primary development club. Commodore, 24, was acquired by Calgary on March 11, 2003 from the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim with Jean-Francois Damphousse in exchange for Rob Niedermayer. Commodore was drafted by the New Jersey Devils in the second round -- 42nd overall -- of the 1999 Entry Draft.
