Boston Bruins defenseman Dougie Hamilton is on his way to the Calgary Flames.

Calgary has acquired the stud defenseman from the Bruins in exchange for the 15th selection in Friday's draft, along with second-round picks to be made 45th and 52nd overall.

Hamilton, 22, is considered one of the top rising defensemen in the league after posting 10 goals, 32 assists, and 41 penalty minutes in 72 games.

The youngster was a restricted free agent this offseason after his entry-level deal expired; rumors swirled that offer sheets would be made to Hamilton, which the Bruins were reportedly going to match.

Calgary now has six days to try and ink the former first-round selection to a contract.
