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.

Mar 12 - 1:27 PM

The NHL will grant Calgary an "a day" to address having an extra man on their roster on Friday night.

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.

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.
