The Stockton Heat have made a splash on Friday signing veteran defenseman Colby Robak and Cody Goloubef to AHL contracts.
The Calgary Flames have assigned defenseman Tyler Wotherspoon along with forwards Hunter Shinkaruk and Emile Poirier to the Stockton Heat.
The Calgary Flames have send five players to the AHL including returning Heat forwards Morgan Klimchuk, Ryan Lomberg and goaltender David Rittich.
"We really became a good team together. A lot of friendships were formed and I was proud of this group." - Hunter Shinkaruk
The Stockton Heat pushed the Gulls hard and eventually captured the victory thanks in part to a hat trick performance from Hunter Shinkaruk which puts the Heat in a playoff spot for the first time since January 20.
Forward Hunter Shinkaruk earns the call-up, the first call-up of the season. Shinkaruk leaves Stockton after scoring 4 goals and adding 3 assists for a point-per-game pace. He was also tied with Morgan Klimchuk for the team lead in goals at the time of his call up.
The former Vancouver Canucks, now Calgary Flames prospect talks about the whirlwind of emotions that swept him back to his hometown, playing at the Scotiabank Saddledome, wearing the flaming "C" on his chest, and what his mother would do to him if he got a little to high on what was going on around him.
