The Flames were expected to make cuts today and did so.

As was expected in the first gap between the preseason games, the Flames trimmed their camp roster today by 11 players bringing the camp total down to 49.

The Flames sent 8 players to Stockton of the AHL, while returning 3 to the CHL. The list of players is as follows:

Stockton:

  1. C Mikkel Aagaard
  2. C Mike Angelidis
  3. C Matt Bailey
  4. LW Jamie Devane
  5. D Stepan Falkovsky
  6. D Keegan Kanzig
  7. G Mason McDonald
  8. RW Brett Pollock

CHL Assignments:

  1. D Riley Bruce (North Bay Battalion/OHL)
  2. C Dillon Dube (Kelowna Rockets/WHL)
  3. RW Eetu Tuulola (Everett Silvertips/WHL)

No real surprises on the cuts here, although you would’ve liked to have seen Mason McDonald stick around a little longer after being drafted in the 2nd round a few years ago. However, he didn’t look great in the young stars tournament or the preseason which played into him being cut.

Calgary has 49 players left at camp with 5 goalies, 17 defencemen, and 27 forwards.

The Flames take on the Canucks on Friday at 7pm at the Dome.
