Tyler Wotherspoon and Drew Shore are expected to be healthy scratches for Game 1 against the Vancouver Canucks Wednesday night.

Both players skated in the Flames last game of the season as the Flames were locked into the three seed in the Pacific Division. That game was Wotherspoon's first of his career where he recorded a minus three rating. Shore played in 11 games this season, picking up a goal and two assists. Don't expect either player to dress in the series against the Canucks.

Tyler Wotherspoon (shoulder) was able to participate in drills with the Flames on Wednesday.

Wotherspoon is recovering from off-season shoulder surgery. "It was nice to get back out there with all the guys, get my timing back. At first it was a little fast and mentally had to get back into it, but as the practice went on, I felt good," Wotherspoon said. He'll gradually ramp up to taking full contact in practices over the next couple of days. If all goes well, he might get into a preseason game in about a week.

Defenseman Tyler Wotherspoon has not be cleared to play after undergoing off-season shoulder surgery.

Wotherspoon played 14 games for the Flames last season and picked up four assists as the 21-year-old is considered a bright prospect for Calgary. He is skating and is awaiting medical clearance for contact. If healthy, Wotherspoon should make the Flames on the third unit. His fantasy value at this time is negligible.
