Sharks trade TJ Galiardi to Flames for 4th round pick

Well. That didn’t take long at all.

A day after it was reported that Jonathan Quick troll TJ Galiardi had been put on the trading block, the Sharks found a new home for the forward. Galiardi was sent to his hometown Calgary Flames in exchange for a 2015 fourth-round pick.

Galiardi, who’s a restricted free agent, effectively became expendable when the Sharks acquired Tyler Kennedy from the Penguins on Sunday. Last year’s first-round draft pick Tomas Hertl is expected to join the Sharks’ corps of forwards this season as well.

We can expect to see Galiardi have a magical season for the Flames now that he’s no longer being held back by the Sharks, much like other recent former SJ-ers Daniel Winnik, Michal Handzus and Ryane Clowe. I’m only half-kidding now, but you just watch.
