Wotherspoon was placed on waivers Monday.
Wotherspoon will spend the balance of the upcoming campaign with AHL Lehigh Valley unless he's claimed before noon Tuesday. The 27-year-old posted four goals and 22 points with the Phantoms during the 2019-20 season.
Wotherspoon won't be included on Vancouver's 31-man playoff roster, Adam Kimelman of NHL.com reports.
Wotherspoon led AHL Lehigh Valley in defensemen scoring this season with 22 points across 54 games. The club will go with 10 defensemen, as Nate Prosser was also cut from the final submission.
Wotherspoon has been promoted to the Flyers' training camp roster for Phase 3.
Wotherspoon led all AHL Lehigh Valley defensemen with 22 points in 54 contests this season and should probably be considered the club's eighth blueliner on the depth chart. In addition to Wotherspoon, the club also added forward German Rubtsov, defensemen Andy Welinski, Nate Prosser, Yegor Zamula and Mark Friedman and goaltenders Alex Lyon and Kirill Ustimenko.
Wotherspoon signed a two-year, two-way contract with the Flyers on Monday.
Wotherspoon was waived by the eventual Stanley Cup-champion Blues ahead of the 2018-19 campaign, but he stuck around with AHL San Antonio and proceeded to record four goals and 18 assists over 70 minor-league contests. Still, even with a clean slate, Wotherspoon is merely a depth option for fantasy purposes.
Wotherspoon was waived by the Blues on Friday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.
The Blues sent six players to the waiver wire ahead of the weekend. Wotherspoon signed a one-year, two-way deal with the club in July, but now St. Louis is at risk of losing him to another team. Wotherspoon recorded seven goals and 30 assists to complement a plus-19 rating over 67 games for AHL Stockton last year.
Wotherspoon signed a one-year, two-way deal with the Blues on Sunday, Darren Dreger of TSN reports.
Wotherspoon has merely dabbled at the NHL level, as he has played mainly for AHL Stockton and compiled 13 goals and 42 assists over the last two seasons. If Jay Bouwmeester (hip) and Carl Gunnarsson (knee) can't play right out of training camp, Wotherspoon could get some looks. However, he's a long way away from being fantasy relevant.
The Flames placed Wotherspoon on waivers Tuesday, James Mirtle of The Athletic Toronto reports.
There's still hope for the 2011 second-round pick as an NHL prospect, but the Flames evidently believe Wotherspoon needs more time to develop in the AHL before getting another shot with the big club. He'll likely spend the majority of the 2017-18 campaign in the minors, but it wouldn't be surprising to see the 24-year-old blueliner draw into a few games with Calgary this season.
Wotherspoon agreed to terms on a one-year, two-way contract with Calgary on Tuesday. The deal is worth $650,000 at the NHL level.
Wotherspoon spent much of last season refining his game with the Flames' AHL affiliate in Stockton, where he posted 18 points and an impressive plus-30 rating. A permanent roster spot with the big club is not out of the question for the 24-year-old, but he'll truly need to earn it among a decently stout Calgary defensive corps, leaving him off the fantasy radar for the time being.
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.
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 simply needed another body.
Wotherspoon was called up from the minors Thursday.
Wotherspoon has yet to suit up in an NHL contest this season, but he may crack the lineup Thursday against Arizona. The defenseman is having a solid AHL campaign, as he leads Stockton in rating (plus-15) to go with a goal and five helpers over 19 games. Calgary is 21st in the league in goals allowed per game at 2.83 and could certainly use a stoic defender on the blue line.
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.
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.
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.
Wotherspoon was reassigned to AHL Stockton, Roger Millions of Sportsnet reports.
Wotherspoon appeared in just six games with the parent club, recording a plus-3 rating but failing to record a point. The defenseman appears to be a casualty of the trade deadline acquisition of fellow blueliner Jyrki Jokipakka, so Wotherspoon will return to the AHL where he's tallied four points in 40 contests.
Wotherspoon was recalled from the minors Friday, Derek Wills of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.
Wotherspoon has only picked up four assists in 40 games with AHL Stockton this season, but proved with the Portland Winterhawks of the WHL that he can be a legitimate playmaker from the blue line, having contributed 61 assists in 192 games between 2010-13. Considering he's the type of player who keeps his game simple, he should be able to hold his own if he draws into the lineup Friday night against the Canucks.
