As announced via a press release on the teams website the Calgary Flames have made the following cuts to their training camp roster:
  • To Stockton (AHL)
    • Jakob Pelletier (F)
    • Mathias Emilio Pettersen (F)
    • Martin Pospisil (F)
    • Ryan Francis (F)
    • Adam Ruzicka (F)
    • Dustin Wolf (G)
  • On waivers for purpose of assignment to Stockton (AHL)
    • Matthew Phillips (F)
    • Kevin Gravel (D)
    • Nick DeSimone (D)
    • Andy Welinski (D)
It’s interesting that Ryan Francis – who is eligible to be returned to the QMJHL – has been assigned to Stockton. Matthew Phillips is a player many fans were wanting to make a big push for the roster, should he clear waivers he will be eligible to be an early call-up without having to go on waivers again for a short period of time. The risk here is any of the other 31 teams can put in a claim to acquire him for nothing over the next 24 hours.
There currently remain 31 players in camp (18 forwards, 10 defencemen, 3 goalies).
