Gabriel has been recalled from AHL Iowa, Michael Russo of the Star Tribune reports.

Russo notes that Friday's game in Calgary could get chippy, considering Flames star Johnny Gaudreau (finger) was injured the last time these two teams met, so Gabriel may have been called up to provide some enforcing support. The 23-year-old winger has yet to play in an NHL game this season and historically hasn't been much of a scoring threat, so he likely shouldn't be rostered in most fantasy formats.
