Kent Wilson was an honored guest on Sportsnet Radio FAN 960 on Tuesday afternoon as he joined me on the phone for some Flames prospects talk. I've had the privilege of checking out Calgary's entry into the Young Stars Tournament in Penticton all week, and after the first two games involving the Flames, I wanted to get Kent's obersvations so far. We also preview the start of training camp on Saturday, something FlamesNation will be all over.

Goals came pretty easy for Calgary Flames prospect Bryan Cameron in his junior career. In five seasons the Belleville and Barrie, Cameron scored 184 goals, including 53 in his final year with the Colts. However, his transition to pro hockey last season did not see the same results. In 60 games with Abbotsford, Cameron scored just six times to go along with two more in seven ECHL contests. It wasn't the season he was expecting, and Cameron hopes he can take some large steps forward in his second season with the Heat.

The Calgary Flames dropped to 0-2 at the Young Stars Tournament in Penticton thanks to a 4-3 overtime loss on Monday night at the hands of the Vancouver Canucks. Following their 6-1 loss to San Jose the previous night, Calgary's prospects were a whole lot better and once again, there were some standout performances. The Flames close out the action Wednesday night against the Edmonton Oilers.
