A mere two days after being sent down to Stockton (AHL), Tyler Wotherspoon is on his way back to the NHL to join the Calgary Flames in Arizona. In what looks to be a pre-roster freeze move or penny-pinching to literally save on one day of cap space, the Flames will again carry a full 23-man squad and seven defensemen.
Wotherspoon was able to play with the Heat and helped them defeat the San Diego Gulls 3-1 on Saturday after being sent down. This season with Stockton, Wotherspoon has six points in 20 games and has yet to make his season debut with the Flames despite sitting in the press box for four games.
The Flames take on the Arizona Coyotes tonight at 7:00 PM MST so there is always room for adjustments prior to puck drop.
