Brett Carson D CGY 11 Months
The Calgary Flames have summoned Brett Carson.
Mark Giordano won't be available on Friday because his wife is having a baby, so the Flames needed another defenseman. "It's obviously exciting," said Carson. "Hopefully, I get up here and get to play some minutes . . . and just prove to this team that they didn't make a mistake in signing me. Obviously it's a tough situation right now, but I'm going to come up here and do my best." Carson has 11 points and 16 penalty minutes in 26 AHL games this season.

Brett Carson (back) is currently with the Flames on their six game road trip but he will not play.
Carson has been battling back problems since the summer and only played twice in December before landing back on the injured list. "We'll see how he tolerates the next little while," GM Jay Feaster said. "As far as trying to ramp up his skating . . . to see where his pain is or isn't." Consider him week-to-week for now.
