RALEIGH, N.C., Nov. 17 (UPI) -- The Carolina Hurricanes have acquired defenseman Ian White and forward Brett Sutter from the Calgary Flames, the teams announced Wednesday.

In exchange, Carolina sent defenseman Anton Babchuk and forward Tom Kostopoulos to the Flames, Hurricanes President and General Manager Jim Rutherford said.

White, 26, played only 43 regular-season games with Calgary after the Flames obtained him in the Jan. 31 multi-player deal that saw former Norris Trophy finalist Dion Phaneuf sent to Toronto. He had two goals and four assists in 16 games this season after posting 13 goals and 25 assists last year.

Sutter, meanwhile, is the 23-year-old son of Flames General Manager Darryl Sutter. He was traded only days after being arrested after an alleged bar fight in Arizona, the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. reported.

Kostopoulos, 31, has played previously in Pittsburgh, Los Angeles and Carolina, and Babchuk, 26, has scored 26 goals and 43 assists in 185 NHL games.
