The Calgary Flames signed Tyler Wotherspoon to a one-year, two-way deal.

He'll make $625,000 in the NHL and $125,000 in the AHL, according to General Fanager. The 23-year-old was Calgary's second round pick, 57th overall, in 2011. He played in 11 NHL games last year and recorded one assist during that span. The Flames have solid depth on defense, which doesn't bode well for Wotherspoon's chances of breaking camp on the roster. He'll likely spend at least a portion of the season in the AHL. He has no fantasy value.
