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.
There's no discouragement in that room. There's no issues there at all to be honest with you. It's more about, 'Hey, it's opportunities for players.' And if we become that bad of a team because of one player, it's not a real good sign for our hockey club. So this is part of sports. It's part of hockey.
