Flames prospect Jakob Pelletier named AHL Player of the Week

The Stockton Heat clinched a playoff spot over the weekend, and for his efforts in that accomplishment, one of the Calgary Flames’ top prospects has received an AHL honour. Jakob Pelletier has been named the AHL’s Player of the Week for the past week’s work.
