CALGARY, Alberta (AP) - The Calgary Flames have acquired defenseman Michael Stone from the Arizona Coyotes for two draft picks.

Stone has a goal and eight assists in 45 games with the Coyotes this season and will be counted on to help shore up Calgary’s defense as it makes a playoff push. The Flames entered Monday’s games a point up on Winnipeg for the second Western Conference wild-card spot.

The 26-year-old Winnipeg native has 24 goals and 96 assists in 324 games with Arizona.

“I think Calgary is a perfect fit for him,” Coyotes general manager John Chayka said before Monday’s game between Arizona and Anaheim. “He’s got some roots there. … He goes to the market, you never know what happens.”

The Coyotes, second to last in the league at 47 points, get Calgary’s third-round pick in the 2017 draft and a conditional fifth-round draft choice in 2018.
