Speak of the devil and he shall arrive! This morning in Random Thoughts I noted that David Wolf would be an interesting call-up for the Flames and soon after the club made it so by recalling him with Sven Baertschi and Tyler Wotherspoon.
Wolf’s addition means Curtis Glencross is still out with injury. It will be interesting to see who he bumps from the line-up (Bollig?), assuming he gets into game action. Wotherspoon was another guy who came up in the Random Thoughts piece. I think Flames management would really like to see him challenge the current crop of third pairing guys for ice time. No doubt he sees some game action this time around.
Sven getting the call ahead of Markus Granlund is also notable. Granlund has been been the Flames go-to call up amongst forwards this season, but he struggled mightily over the last couple of months after a hot start. Like Wolf, Baertschi was one of the most productive players on the farm in January. Maybe he’ll get more of chance to contribute above 4th line minutes this time around?
