The Calgary Flames announced Thursday they have trimmed their roster to 29 players by reassigning center Ben Street and defenseman Chris Breen to the Abbotsford Heat (AHL) and releasing right wing Brad Winchester from his professional tryout agreement.
The Flames have three goalies, 10 defensemen and 16 forwards remaining in camp.
I have been blessed to play for 16 years in the NHL; it has been an amazing ride. I would like to thank the Tampa Bay Lightning and New York Rangers organizations and owners for providing me the opportunity to play the sport I love for so many years. I could have never played for so long or accomplished all that I have without the unwavering love and support from my wife, Heather, our three sons, Ryan, Lucas, and Mason, and my parents.
