Calgary Hitmen Acquire Colorado Avalanche Prospect Galiardi

August 30, 2007 - Western Hockey League (WHL) - Calgary Hitmen News Release

Calgary, AB - Calgary Hitmen General Manager and Head Coach Kelly Kisio announced today the acquisition of 19-year-old forward T.J Galiardi (GALLEY-ar-dee) from the Portland Winter Hawks in exchange for a third round pick in the 2008 WHL Bantam Draft.

"This is a very big move for our organization being able to add a front line player to our mix," said Kisio. "T.J. has very good puck skills and will add some much needed offence to our team."

Galiardi spent the 2006-07 season with Dartmouth College of the Eastern College Athletic Conference (Division I, Ivy League) and was second in scoring with the Big Green. He was also an all-star for the Calgary Royals of the Alberta Junior Hockey League in 2005-06.
