Prospect Of The Month: Derek Grant

by Torie Peterson / Calgary Flames

Derek Grant provided plenty of offensive support of the Stockton Heat in December, posting 11 points in 11 games last month.

The pivot, who leads the Heat in scoring with 16 goals and 20 points this year, was held pointless in just four games last month and had four multi-point games to his name in December.

Grant also had 51 shots on net in December, including an 11-shot effort on Dec. 16 when he potted both of Stockton's goals in a 3-2 setback to the Bakersfield Condors.

While he was held off the scoresheet in the Heat's first game of the month, Grant potted two goals in Stockton's 4-2 win over San Diego on Dec. 5. He was named the game's first star for his efforts.

He went two games without collecting a point but then put up another two-goal game in the aforementioned 3-2 setback to Bakersfield on Dec. 16. He was named the game's second star and that contest kicked off a five-game point streak for Grant.

The Abbotsford, BC native scored a goal in Stockton's 3-2 win over the Condors on Dec. 19 and was named the second star of the game, had two assists in a 5-4 loss to San Jose on Dec. 20, collected two assists in a 5-3 loss to Bakersfield on Dec. 26, and then scored the Heat's lone goal in 5-1 setback to the Barracuda on Dec. 27.

Grant was pointless in Stockton's game against Ontario on Dec. 29 but wrapped up the month with an assist in the Heat' 4-1 win over the Reign on Dec. 31.

The Flames signed the 25-year-old to a one-year contract on Jul. 1, 2015. He has played nine games with Calgary this season, putting 10 shots on net in that span. In 34 career NHL games, he has two assists, four penalty minutes, and 46 shots.
