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.

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.

There's an outside chance Tyler Wotherspoon will start the 2013-14 campaign with the Calgary Flames.

The Flames already have six defensemen signed to one-way contract. "I’ve glanced at it once or twice and I know the situation," Wotherspoon said. "They’ve talked to me and told me they believe in me. And I believe in myself. I know if I play my game and play the right way, I’m going to get every opportunity that I can. The last couple years have been great, but I know turning pro isn’t easy. It’s a different lifestyle and a different animal. It’s men out there now and I’ve got to become accustomed to it. I’ll take what I can from the coaches and put it into my game, but after this camp, I feel strong and more comfortable going into (main) camp. I’m excited about this year." He had 37 points in 61 WHL games, but he's likely to be a stay-at-home defenseman at the NHL level.

The Calgary Flames have signed Tyler Wotherspoon to an entry-level contract.

Although the length of the deal was not announced, he will get $925,000 per season. Wotherspoon was a mainstay on Team Canada's blueline during the 2013 World Junior Championships and had a great year in the WHL where he was a plus-62 and garnered 37 points for Portland. The second rounder is highly regarded but will likely require most time in the minors before making his presence felt in the NHL.

Tyler Wotherspoon disagrees with the assertion that his defensive skill set makes his work often go unnoticed.

"I don't think anybody out there wants that," Wotherspoon said. "I think we've all got a special part on this team, and I don't think anybody will be unnoticed." Wotherspoon has a WHL-leading plus-34 rating in 29 games. He'll play for Team Canada in the World Junior Championship and head coach Steve Spott suggested that plus-minus will be his main stat in the tournament. Spott added that while other players on the team have more flare, Wotherspoon can be relied upon to play a shutdown role, especially while the team is killing penalties.
