  • Flames' Tyler Wotherspoon: Sent down to AHL

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/9/17) Wotherspoon was returned to the minors Monday, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The FAN reports.

    Wotherspoon will be swapped out on the Flames' 23-man roster for fellow defenseman Brett Kulak who was brought up in a corresponding move. The 23-year-old Wotherspoon has played a mere four of Calgary's previous 13 contests and averaged a paltry 10:54 of ice time when in the lineup. Rather than let the blueliner warm the end of the bench or a seat in the press box, the organization has opted to return him to AHL Stockton where he can continue developing his game.

    Flames' Tyler Wotherspoon: Called up to NHL on Monday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/19/16) Wotherspoon was recalled from AHL Stockton on Monday.

    The defenseman only has six points in 20 games in the AHL, so don't expect him to be an explosive offensive blueliner in the NHL. With some depth issues on defense, the Flames needed another body, and Wotherspoon will provide that at the very least.

    Flames' Tyler Wotherspoon: Promoted to NHL

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/8/16) Wotherspoon was called up from the minors Thursday.

    Wotherspoon has yet to suit up in an NHL contest this season, but may crack the lineup Thursday against Arizona. The defenseman is having a solid minor league campaign as he leads the team in plus/minus rating at plus-15 while adding one goal and five helpers. Calgary are 21st in the league in goals allowed per game at 2.83 and could certainly use a stoic defender on their blue line.

    Flames' Tyler Wotherspoon: Enters waiver period

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/7/16) Wotherspoon was placed on waivers Friday, Wes Gilbertson of Postmedia reports.

    Wotherspoon has recorded only five assists and no goals in 26 career NHL games. Due to his limited track record and the fact that Calgary needs to clear roster spots before Opening Night, Wotherspoon was deemed expendable. If the 23-year-old defender does not get scooped up by another organization during his waiver period, he'll likely head to Calgary's minor league affiliate, AHL Stockton, to begin the 2016-17 season.

    Flames' Tyler Wotherspoon: Pens deal with Calgary

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (8/15/16) Wotherspoon inked a one-year, two-way contract with the Flames on Monday.

    Wotherspoon saw action in just 11 NHL contests last season in which he netted a lone helper and 14 hits. It seems doubtful the 23-year-old will have a breakout season given his limited production. At best, the blueliner could see an uptick in number of days in the majors, but will more likely than not continue to grind away in the AHL.
