Prospect Of The Week: Tyler Wotherspoon

CALGARY, AB -- With the Adirondack Flames chasing a playoff spot in the AHL's Western Conference, they are counting on everyone to help chip in offensively.

Tyler Wotherspoon, who logs a lot of minutes for the Flames, was able to come through with some timely plays and helped Adirondack pick up three points in two games against the Oklahoma City Barons this weekend.

The rearguard posted three helpers in the pair of games and now sits second amongst all Adirondack skaters with 19 assists on the year.

On Friday, in a 4-3 OT setback to the Barons, Wotherspoon picked up assists on goals from Michael Ferland and David Wolf.

He followed that up by collecting a helper on Ferland's first period power play marker in Saturday's 3-1 win over Oklahoma City.

In 46 games with Adirondack, Wotherspoon has two goals and 21 points, leading all Flames defencemen in scoring. He was the Flames' second round pick (57th overall) in the 2011 NHL Draft.
