The Calgary Flames' number one goaltender Jacob Markstrom made an unusual gesture during last night's warm-ups that led people to believe his journey with the organization could be ending soon.

Unusual Gesture in Warm-ups: Major Hint at Trade Involving Calgary Flames Goaltender Jacob Markstrom?

With three weeks left before March 8th, it is widely anticipated that at least one goaltender will be traded soon. A few teams are rumored to be looking for a goalie, such as the New Jersey Devils, Colorado Avalanche and the Carolina Hurricanes.


The Calgary Flames have a lot of interesting trade targets and Jacob Markstrom is one of them. With Dan Vladar and Dustin Wold completing the Flames' goalie unit, Markstrom would leave the team in good hands.

In yesterday's warm-ups, he made an unusual gesture that could hint at an upcoming trade:

Fun moment—#flames goalie Jacob Markstrom spent the last 3 ish minutes of warmups giving pucks to fans at both sides of the rink.

Even when he's backed up, I've never seen him do that before, ever.

Just me (!), but the scene w/ Markstrom during the end of warmups tonight reminded me when then-GM Brad Treliving watched the final practice of last season from the bench.

You just feel the air is different, given how out-of-character they were & the noise around them. #Flames



Markstrom spent the last four seasons in Calgary, and it's possible that he wants to give as much love back to the fans as possible before he changes teams.

Do you think the Flames will trade Markstrom this season?
