Tyler Wotherspoon Sent Back Down To AHL Stockton Heat

After a short run with the Flames, Tyler Wotherspoon was sent down today.

Tyler Wotherspoon was sent back down to the AHL Stockton Heat today.

He was one of the emergency call-ups for the Flames when Kris Russell got hurt. With the Jokipakka acquisition, there are too many defensemen in the lineup, which means Wotherspoon is sent back down because there is no room for him on the roster.

He may not have notched any points during his 6-game run with the Flames, but he was quite a big defender paired with Jakub Nakladal. Together they made quite an impact on the blue line and we hope to see Wotherspoon again defending the Flames net.
