Wotherspoon has been returned to AHL Stockton, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The FAN reports. Wotherspoon was bumped from the parent club roster since Deryk Engelland is ready to return following a personal leave. Spoon has ideal size at 6-foot-2, 210 pounds and is wise beyond his years, but he needs more seasoning in the minors before he'd have a legitimate chance to evolve into an impact defenseman in the NHL.
Wotherspoon notched his first assist of the season in Thursday's 6-2 loss to Minnesota. Wotherspoon has only appeared in 11 games this season, spending most of his year with AHL Stockton. While it's nice to see the 23-year-old get on the scoresheet, he'll most likely head back down to the minors once Deryk Engelland (personal) rejoins the team Saturday.
Wotherspoon was recalled from AHL Stockton on an emergency basis Sunday. Wotherspoon will temporarily fill in for Deryk Engelland, who is away from the team for the birth of his child. Though available for Sunday's game against the Canadiens, Wotherspoon hasn't logged any ice team through the first period.
Wotherspoon was sent down to AHL Stockton on Saturday. Wotherspoon had been with the parent club on an emergency basis after news broke that Jakub Nakladal (eye) would miss a game, but NHL rules stipulate that a player must be sent back down once the emergency is over. Wotherspoon is mostly devoid of offensive utility, as he's registered just four points in 42 games with the Heat this campaign.
Wotherspoon has been recalled on an emergency basis and will play Monday against the Sharks, Roger Millions of Sportsnet Calgary reports. Wotherspoon's stay with the Flames could be a short one, but he'll get at least one opportunity to play with the Flames on Monday following the news that Jakub Nakladal (eye) won't be available. Still, he doesn't produce enough to be worth a look in nearly all fantasy formats.
