Huberdeau did not make it clear whether he would work with Flames long-term

Jonathan Huberdeau has gotten over the initial shock of being traded to the Calgary Flames and said he’s open to the idea of staying long-term with his new team.

The 29-year-old forward was acquired by the Flames with defenseman MacKenzie Weegar and forward prospect Cole Schwindt in a trade with the Florida Panthers for forward Matthew Tkachuk on Friday.

He has one season remaining on a six-year, $35.4 million contract he signed with the Panthers on Sept. 7, 2016, and can become an unrestricted free agent after this season.

Huberdeau was tied for second in the NHL with a career-high 115 points and led the League with 85 assists in 80 games last season.
