Brodie and Carson
Brodie is bumped down to the third defensive pairing to help newcomer Brett Carson. The rookie has a goal and five points in 15 games.
Hannan with Brodie
Brodie moves into the top four with Mark Giordano sidelined indefinitely. The rookie has looked good as a puck-moving defender and should see some power play time.
TJ Brodie first practice will no doubt play in Chicago. #puckmover.
Look for Brodie to draw in on the third pairing and possibly get some PP time. He scored one goal and three points over 12 games with the Flames.
Calgary Flames recall T.J. Brodie from the Abbotsford Flames of the AHL. #NHL #Flames
Brodie scored a goal and three points over his first 12 games with the Heat this season.
But after an impressive rookie season, Brodie never quite found his place at Flames camp, especially in Penticton for the second annual Canucks Young Stars Tournament. As a result, he was dispatched back to Abbotsford, back to the minor leagues.
Brodie failed to make the team but remains one of the team's top prospects. Last season he scored five goals and 34 points through 68 games with the Abbotsford Heat of the AHL -- finishing second on the team. Look for him to eventually make the team.
According to the Flames official site, 12 more players are headed to Abbotsford: Carter Bancks (LW), Chris Breen (D), T.J. Brodie (D), Leland Irving (G), Stefan Meyer (C), Brendan Mikkelson (D), Greg Nemisz (RW), Joni Ortio (G), Gaelan Patterson (C), Joe Piskula (D) Ben Walter (C), Clay Wilson (D)
No immediate fantasy hockey value while playing in the AHL.
