Stockton, Calif. – The Stockton Heat, proudly owned by the NHL’s Calgary Flames, announce the signing of veteran forward Mike Angelidis, 135 NHL-game pro Matt Frattin, five-year pro Jamie Devane, returning forward Ryan Lomberg and rookie defenseman Roman Dyukov to AHL contracts.
Angelidis, 31, is entering his 11th season pro and his first out of the Tampa Bay Lightning organization since 2009-10. Angelidis has played 632 AHL games, 397 of which occurred for the Lightning’s AHL affiliates in parts of the last six seasons. In addition, Angelidis has suited up in 14 NHL games for the Lightning, four of which occurred in 2015-16.
The forward began his career in the Carolina Hurricanes system with the Albany River Rats after completing his OHL career before moving to the Lightning organization. Since then, Angelidis helped the Norfolk Admirals to an AHL record 28-straight regular season games won (32-straight games over multiple AHL seasons, also an AHL record) along with helping to lead the team to a Calder Cup win in 2011-12. Angelidis then served as the captain of the Lightning’s new AHL affiliate in Syracuse ever since 2012-13 and was named an AHL All-Star last season.
However Angelidis’ track record as a leader extends away from the ice as he was also named the Ontario Hockey League and Canadian Hockey League Humanitarian of the Year while playing for the Owen Sound Attack in 2005-06.
