The Calgary Flames have reduced their roster to 26 players by reassigning center Paul Bryon and defenseman Brett Carson to the Abbotsford Heat of the American Hockey League, while goaltender Henrik Karlsson has been designated for assignment but remains with the team.
The Flames have two goalies, nine defensemen and 15 forwards remaining in camp. Teams must finalize their 23-man roster for opening night by 5 p.m. ET Friday.
I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
