Calgary Flames recall defenceman Derek Smith from Abbotsford Heat

CALGARY - Defenceman Derek Smith was recalled to the Calgary Flames on Saturday from their American Hockey League affiliate.

Smith has two goals, 11 assists and a plus-22 rating in 80 NHL games with the Flames and Ottawa Senators.

Quote of the Day

After being through it and seeing the other [outdoor] games on TV, just the atmosphere is spectacular. To stand here -- and we are essentially almost on the blue line -- and look up [into the stands] and knowing it is going to be packed and playing our biggest rival in this setting is going to be pretty special.
