The Flames have acquired Jyrki Jokipakka, Brett Pollock and a conditional second round pick from the Stars for Kris Russell.

Jokipakka, 24, was a seventh round pick (195th overall) in 2011 but didn’t waste any time getting to the NHL since coming over from Finland. The 6-foot-3, 215 lbs. defenseman has six points (2G / 4A) in 40 games with Dallas this season. He will play a more regular role with his new team in Calgary.

The Stars sent Jyrki Jokipakka back to Texas (AHL).

Jokipakka had two assists in three games during his recall. He has been sent down because the Stars are done until after the All Star break. If Trevor Daley is not ready after the break, Jokipakka could be recalled.

Jokipakka in; Jo. Benn out.

Jokipakka will slide back into the Stars lineup tonight for the first time since November 1st. Jokipakka will look to have a strong game in order to carve out a long-term role on the Stars’ blue line in a state of flux right now. He has no points and a minus-3 rating in three games.

Jyrki Jokipakka will make his NHL debut on Friday vs. New Jersey.

Jokipakka, a seventh-round pick (195th overall) in 2011, played three seasons in Finland’s top league and made his North American debut last season with the Texas Stars. He was a key piece for that Texas team that won the 2014 Calder Cup. Jokipakka was paired with Jamie Oleksiak during Friday morning’s skate, meaning that Kevin Connauton is the expected healthy scratch on the blue line.
