Prospects Take the Ice


A group of 27 Calgary Flames hopefuls take to the ice today for the annual prospects development camp. The camp will run from Monday to Saturday and all sessions are open to the public.

The group has several names we saw on the ice for the Flames last season, including Matt Pelech (5 games), Brett Sutter (4 games), John Negrin (3 games) and Mikael Backlund (1 game). Only Sutter managed to score a goal, but Pelech (3 assists), Negrin (1 assist) and Backlund had strong showings.

The other notable names in the group are Leland Irving and Matt Keetly (who backstopped the flames AHL affiliate team last season), Keith Seabrook, and Greg Nemisz.

The sessions start today at 3:30pm and at 9:00am for the rest of the week.
