The long-awaited resolution of the Calgary Flames trade with the Edmonton Oilers for Milan Lucic has been determined. The Flames will get a third round pick in either 2020 or 2021. So what picks does this leave the Flames with over the next few drafts?

The 2020 Draft

The Flames have picks in the first, second, fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh rounds. They might have a third round pick.

They owe a third round pick – the earliest one they have – to Chicago to complete the Erik Gustafsson swap from the trade deadline. Edmonton owes them a third rounder in either 2020 or 2021; if they opt for 2020, then the Flames will keep their own pick (otherwise Chicago gets the Flames’ third).

The Flames sent their own fourth rounder to Los Angeles at last season’s trade deadline for Oscar Fantenberg. But they acquired San Jose’s pick from Buffalo for Michael Frolik.

The 2021 Draft

The Flames have picks in every round of the 2021 draft. They might have two third round picks, but they might not have a fourth round pick.

As mentioned, Edmonton owes them a third rounder in either 2020 or 2021. If they opt for 2021, then the Flames will have two picks in that round.

The Flames might owe Los Angeles a fourth round pick to complete the trade deadline move for Derek Forbort. If the Flames make the 2020 conference final and Forbort plays in half the playoff games, or Forbort re-signs, then this pick becomes a 2022 third rounder. So it’ll probably be the 2021 fourth that goes to the Kings.

The 2022 Draft

The Flames have picks in every round of the 2022 draft. They might not have a third round pick.

As mentioned, the Flames might owe Los Angeles a third round pick to complete the trade deadline move for Forbort. If the Flames make the 2020 conference final and Forbort plays in half the playoff games, or Forbort re-signs, then this pick becomes a 2022 third rounder.
