But after an impressive rookie season, Brodie never quite found his place at Flames camp, especially in Penticton for the second annual Canucks Young Stars Tournament. As a result, he was dispatched back to Abbotsford, back to the minor leagues.
Brodie failed to make the team but remains one of the team's top prospects. Last season he scored five goals and 34 points through 68 games with the Abbotsford Heat of the AHL -- finishing second on the team. Look for him to eventually make the team.
According to the Flames official site, 12 more players are headed to Abbotsford: Carter Bancks (LW), Chris Breen (D), T.J. Brodie (D), Leland Irving (G), Stefan Meyer (C), Brendan Mikkelson (D), Greg Nemisz (RW), Joni Ortio (G), Gaelan Patterson (C), Joe Piskula (D)
Ben Walter (C), Clay Wilson (D)
No immediate fantasy hockey value while playing in the AHL.
