Tyler Wotherspoon's chances to crack the Calgary Flames blueline will be tougher with the trade for his former teammate Dougie Hamilton.
The two were teammates for Canada at the 2013 U20 World Championships in Russia. "Dougie is a great teammate, first of all," Wotherspoon said. "And on the ice, he’s an incredible player. He’s really special to play with. He’s got a boom of a shot — one of the best one-timers I’ve seen. He can almost do everything you want him to do, and he’s going to put it all on the ice, and you can’t ask for much more. I’m just excited for him to be a part of our organization and to have him on our side." Wotherspoon played only one regular season game in 2014-15 after playing in 14 the previous season.
