As they did earlier this week, the Flames have assigned players to Stockton of the AHL, nine to be exact. Here’s the list:
Byron Froese (C), Jon Gillies (G), Justin Kirkland (LW), Andrew Nielson (LD), Matthew Phillips (RW), Luke Philp (C), Buddy Robinson (RW), Rinat Valiev (LD) and Artyom Zagidulin (G)
No real surprises in that list as Calgary will suit up their big guns in the preseason finale against Edmonton on Saturday night. Brandon Davidson was also placed on waivers with the hope that he will clear and then be assigned to the Heat as well.
The Heat open up their season on September 29th with a preseason party and exhibition game against the Bakersfield Condors. Calgary opens their regular season on October 3rd on the road in Colorado.
