CALGARY (12/31/13) - The Calgary Flames acquired right winger Kevin Westgarth '07 from the Carolina Hurricanes on Monday for forward Greg Nemisz.

This is the first trade made by acting general manager Brian Burke, who has stated he doesn't "like the way we've been pushed around." Adding enforcer Westgarth will help in building a bigger, stronger team. Westgarth is expected to play on the fourth line with Lance Bouma and Brian McGrattan.

"I am excited to join the Calgary Flames, another first class organization," Westgarth said on Twitter. "Can't wait to contribute everything I can to the team and city." In an additional tweet he stated, "I want to thank the Hurricanes organization, the fans and especially the players for a great experience here in Raleigh, going to miss it."

Westgarth is in his fifth full NHL season. He has played 133 career games overall with Los Angeles and Carolina and has three goals and six assists as well as 202 penalty minutes. Westgarth was a member of the Kings' 2012 Stanley Cup team. He joined the Hurricanes after the 2012-13 lockout.

A native of Amherstburg, Ont., Westgarth signed with the Kings as a free against on March 16, 2007 after his senior season at Princeton.

At Princeton, Westgarth played in 116 games, scoring 25 goals and adding 35 assists for 60 points. During the 2006-07 season he played alongside his older brother Brett. It was at Princeton where Westgarth met his wife, Meagan (Cowher).

Calgary hosts the Flyers tonight at 9 p.m.
