The Calgary Flames added another big man to their forward cast on Monday, claiming Radim Zohona from the NHL’s Waverwire.
Zohona appeared in 17 games for the Pittsburgh Penguins last season, scoring two goals and four assists and posting a plus-12 rating, but those aren’t his most interesting stats. Originally from the Czech Republic, he is 26. His height is 6 feet 6 and he weighs 220 pounds.

“(Zohona) played really well for us,” Penguins manager Mike Sullivan told the Pittsburgh Tribune Review last week.
“This gives him a chance to play his game, and it’s just the ability to maintain energy and effort levels during long shifts, or shift to shift, period to period. We tried to challenge him in the off-season, and certainly he’s got the job done. You can see it on the ice.
Zohorna spent most of last winter at AHL level, making 39 appearances for the Penguins’ farm team, scoring a total of 12 goals and 21 points.
