Elson has agreed to terms with the Red Wings on a one-year contract. The undrafted center has only played in one NHL game, having done so with the Flames in 2015-16. He'll almost assuredly spend the bulk of next season in the AHL unless injuries rip apart the Winged Wheel for the second straight season.
The Flames have assigned Elson to AHL Stockton. Elson, who recorded an assist in his first and only game with the big club this season, will return to Stockton, where he has notched 13 goals and 29 points in 59 AHL games to date. The 23-year-old forward will thus look to make a run next fall at a more stable role with the Flames, as the 2016-17 campaign approaches.
Elson was recalled from AHL Stockton on Friday. The 23-year-old could end up making his NHL debut for the Flames on Saturday after spending the better portion of the last three seasons in the minors. Even if that does wind up being the case, it's unlikely he will see enough ice time for consideration in fantasy leagues.
Turner Elson signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Flames on Friday, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The FAN reports.
