Stockton, Calif. – The Stockton Heat, proud AHL affiliate of the NHL’s Calgary Flames, announced today that defenseman Cody Goloubef will be loaned to play for Team Canada at the Spengler Cup in Davos, Switzerland. Goloubef will join the roster next week to participate in the 91st Spengler Cup, which runs from December 26 through December 31.
Goloubef, 28, has 3 goals and 6 assists in 19 games with the Stockton Heat this season and becomes the second Heat player to participate in the tournament, following Aaron Johnson, who suited up for Team Canada in the 2015 Spengler Cup victory for Team Canada, their 13th Spengler Cup victory. Team Canada repeated their performance in 2016 and look to extend their streak to three-straight Spengler Cup victories.
Joining Goloubef on Team Canada’s Spengler Cup roster are two Stockton Heat alums from 2015-16 in goaltender Kevin Poulin, who went 14-11-3 in 29 games between the pipes for the Heat along with forward Mason Raymond who scored 6 goals and added 9 assists in 15 games for the Heat.
The Stockton Heat continue their season-long, seven-game road swing with a pair of games this Friday and Saturday in Tucson, with both games starting at 6:05 p.m. PST. Follow the games by watching the team on AHL Live, with packages to watch multiple Heat games this season starting as low as $34.99.
