The Stockton Heat

This Rosetown, Saskatchewan (hmmm, where I have heard that before) boy has played in 16 games with the Heat with zero goals and assists, but a steady plus 5.

Kayle spent his career in Red Deer as a Rebel. He's a brick shithouse to say the least. Quietly responsible defensively and a real mean streak when provoked. His biggest drawback was said mean streak. He's almost like Iggy was, needs a little motivation to bring out the beast. There's definitely something to be said about poking the bear. I got to talk to him a couple times during the Memorial Cup run last year, very nice farm kid, almost nice to a fault. However seeing his numbers on the Heat, the steady D is there and that mean streak has reared it's head a few times. Good to see, he's one of my favourites.
Hold my beer and watch this!

Meanwhile down on the farm the Coach Huska and the boys have us into a play-off spot with a 4 point cushion. Shinky has picked the right time to up his game with a couple more goals and Vey had 3 assists.

Calgary Flames @NHLFlames
The #Flames have assigned Rasmus Andersson and David Rittich to the @AHLHeat.

The Heat play in San Jose today so these boyz stayed while the team flew home.

Very NON fast D man.  Needs to gain a lot of foot speed. But when he fights he is mean.

The Heat lose game 3 in their best of five series against the San Josey Barracuda.

Interesting to note that young Jankowski is again leading the team in scoring, although he is -3 in the series. He must be getting some tough minutes to play.

Stockton forces game 5 in San Hosey on Tuesday with a 5-3 victory yesterday. They were led by Linden Vey up front and Dave Rittich in goal. I think Vey will challenge for a spot on the big club next year.

The Heat are in tough, going into San Jose for game 5 against the #! team. But the young guys are getting some great playoff experience.

Rittich seems to have taken the #1 spot for now from Gillies and has been very solid.

I think the top line of Janko, Mangiapane and Hathaway all have a better shot next year at the big team than Vey, who is a great AHL player but too slow for the NHL, and is not getting any faster.

True. The reason I said that was because Vey posted Jankowski like numbers during the regular season and is showing leadership during the play-offs. Whether that translates to a job with the big club is iffy. We are chalk full of centremen and it will be tough. Still he has shown desire in spades so I think he'll push some guys including young Marko.

Yes he has. Which is why I think one of these two will graduate to the big club next year unless the Flames sign a no.1 and bring back Johnson. In which case Rittich and Gillies could be Stockton's goalies. IF both are re-signed. Both are RFA's. Come to think of it so is Vey, so the Flames will have to decide whether to resign him as well.

They have young Parsons signed as well and need a spot for him to play. They also have MacDonald in the ECHL and the guy they signed for Exp. Draft. And the kid in Med. Hat will need a spot.

So the pressure is on them to bring one up IMHO. I thought it was gonna be Gillies, the fair haired draft choice who was on Janko's team when they won the NCAA final, and was the one they seemed to be grooming for the spot.

Rittich was just the kid they found in the Czech Rep. but he was come in, split the season with Gillies and outplayed him at times.

So I hope that they are battling it out for the backup next camp. I like homeboy Johnson, but if they can swap for Fluery and his 2 year contract, that would be perfect to get 20+ games for the young backup.

I think they keep Vey as one of the vets you need on an AHL squad.

A Flames from Above 80 Feet article, written before game 4. Lots of player interviews and a good read.

After a scoreless first period, Gillies takes over for Rittich in net to start the 2nd.
