It didn’t take coach Darryl Sutter and his staff long to trim down the roster at Calgary Flames camp.
The Flames announced Saturday afternoon that the team had assigned prospects Jack Beck, Cole Huckins, Cole Jordan, and Cameron Whynot back to their respective junior clubs after just four days of camp.
Calgary also released forwards Evan Boucher and Cooper Walker and defencemen Christoffer Sedoff and Jake Lee — all unrestricted free agents. They had been invited to camp on amateur tryouts.
Our roster has been trimmed, with 6 goalies, 19 defencemen, and 34 forwards remaining in training camp.#Flames | @GoodLifeFitness

None participated in the Flames’ intrasquad scrimmage Saturday morning.
The cuts leave Calgary with six goalies, 19 defensemen, and 34 forwards remaining in camp.
The Flames will see their first preseason action in split-squad action against the Vancouver Canucks on Sunday. One group will play at Vancouver at 5 pm MT, and the other will host the Canucks at the Saddledome in Calgary starting at 6 pm MT.
