- He's their top prospect and if you believe the hype a can't-miss stud. He'd probably be in the NHL right now if not for the lockout. He's their systems Nyqvist, but probably better.
- Another high-end talented winger in the Flames system. His ceiling is similar to that of a Frk or Jurco.
- Their top center prospect. Another high-ceiling guy similar to Jarnkrok (not in play style just in terms of upside).
- Flames top defensive prospect. A step below Smith in terms of upside, more in the Sproul/Ouellet category.
Plenty of guys on the Flames side to watch. Should be an interesting game without some of the ridiculous stacked teams for either side. More like a true AHL game from any normal season.
Abbotsford Heat is the AHL affiliate for Calgary. We're playing Carolina's AHL team tonight.
