GLENDALE, ARIZONA – Phoenix Coyotes General Manager Don Maloney announced today that the Coyotes have acquired center Daymond Langkow from the Calgary Flames in exchange for right wing Lee Stempniak. The trade is contingent upon Langkow passing a physical examination.

UPDATE: Langkow passed his physical examination on Aug. 31 and is fully cleared to play and participate in all Coyotes activities.

“We are very pleased to welcome Daymond back to the Coyotes organization,” Maloney said. “He is an intelligent, well respected, veteran center. His competitive, two-way game is a great fit for us and we are excited to have him back in Phoenix.”

The 5-foot-11, 185-pound Langkow has recorded 259-383-642 in 1,017 career NHL games with Calgary, Phoenix, Philadelphia and Tampa Bay. He is a plus-85 for his career and has added 71 power-play goals and 41 game-winning goals. Langkow has posted 14-23-37 in 59 career NHL playoff games.

The 34-year-old native of Edmonton, Alberta played in four games last season with Calgary after missing most of the year with an upper body injury. He registered 14-23-37 in 2009-10 with the Flames and established career-highs in goals (33), assists (44), points (77) and plus-minus (+23) in 2006-07 with Calgary.

Langkow previously played for the Coyotes for three seasons from 2001-2004 and posted 68-98-166 in 243 games. He was originally selected by the Tampa Bay Lightning in the first round (fifth overall) of the 1995 NHL Entry Draft.

In two seasons with the Coyotes (2009-11), Stempniak recorded 33-23-56 in 100 regular season games.
