Sparks was released from his tryout with the Flames on Wednesday, per TSN. Sparks was unable to win the No. 3 job in training camp -- Louis Domingue will serve in that role with the Flames this year. Sparks signed a minor-league deal with the Lightning's AHL affiliate prior to his PTO, so he's likely to return to that deal for the 2020-21 season.
Sparks was reassigned to AHL Stockton on Saturday. Sparks attended the Flames' camp on a tryout offer. It's possible they still sign him to a two-way contract, but it appears he'll be destined to begin the season in the minors. With Sparks sent down a level, Louis Domingue figures to be the Flames' taxi-squad goalie.
Sparks will attend the Flames' training camp on a professional tryout offer. Sparks recently signed an AHL-only deal with Tampa Bay, but he'll have an opportunity to earn a two-way deal with the Flames during training camp. If he does earn a contract with Calgary, Sparks will likely serve as the team's emergency goalie on the taxi squad.
Sparks was reassigned to AHL Chicago on Tuesday. Once again, Sparks didn't appear in a game while with the Golden Knights on an emergency basis. It's safe to assume that if Marc-Andre Fleury (personal) hasn't returned to the team in time for Thursday's game against the Islanders, Sparks would be called up again.
Sparks was recalled on an emergency basis from AHL Chicago on Sunday. With Marc-Andre Fleury (personal) potentially missing a game or two this week, Sparks was called up on an emergency basis. If Fleury can't go, Malcolm Subban will likely draw the start with Sparks backing up. However, the Golden Knights have a back-to-back scheduled for Monday and Tuesday. The 26-year-old owns a .924 save percentage and 2.50 GAA at the AHL level this season.
