The Stockton Heat, proudly owned by the NHL's Calgary Flames, announce that the club has added goaltender Tyler Parsons on an Amateur Tryout through the team's chase for the Calder Cup.
Parsons, 19, was selected by the Flames in last year's NHL Draft and signed earlier this spring to a contract with Calgary which begins in 2017-18. Parsons is an extremely decorated junior hockey goaltender who won the Memorial Cup with the London Knights last year while being named the Memorial Cup's Most Outstanding Goaltender and winner of the Dave Pinkney Trophy for the lowest team goals-against-average.
This season, Parsons had an OHL-best .925 save percentage and won a gold medal with the United States during the 2017 World Junior Championships.
