The Flames have recalled Tyler Wotherspoon from Adirondack (AHL).
Wotherspoon, 21, has been recalled to serve as the Flames seventh defenseman with Ladislav Smid going on IR. Wotherspoon has two goals and 13 assists (15 points) in 38 games AHL games. He had four assists in 14 games with the Flames last season .
The Flames have sent Drew Shore back to Adirondack (AHL).
Shore, 23, did not record a point in the only game that he appeared in with the Flames. He heads to Adirondack, where he is expected to make his debut with the team this week. He has 30 AHL points (9G / 21A) in 35 games with San Antonio this season.
The Flames have activated Karri Ramo (upper-body) from IR.
Ramo has missed the last five games with an upper-body injury, but could be back in goal on Wednesday. The Flames placed Ladislav Smid on IR to make room for Ramo to be activated, so they will carry three goalies for the time being.
The Flames have activated Josh Jooris (undisclosed) from injured reserve.
Jooris has missed the last four games with an undisclosed injury. Despite being activated from injured reserve, he will not be in the lineup tonight in Los Angeles. He could be back on Wednesday in Anaheim or after the All Star break.
The Flames have placed Curtis Glencross (lower-body) on injured reserve.
Glencross missed Saturday’s game in San Jose and will not play tonight in L.A. He has been placed on IR, but will be eligible to return to the lineup after the All Star break. His movement to IR allowed the team to activate Josh Jooris.
Ortio will make his fourth straight start on Monday.
Ortio stopped 19 of 22 shots in the Flames 4-3 OT win over the Sharks. He joined the Flames in the middle of a West Coast road-trip and has gone 3-0-0 with a 1.33 GAA and .953 SV%. He will look to continue his winning ways tonight, but has another tough matchup in Los Angeles.
Glencross (lower-body) is not expected to play on Saturday.
Glencross suffered a lower-body injury against the Coyotes on Thursday. On Friday coach Bob Hartley listed him as doubtful and he did not take part in the morning skate, so do not expect to see Glencross tonight in San Jose. With Glencross out, Lance Bouma skated in the Flames top-6 this morning.
Ortio will make his third straight start on Saturday.
Ortio stopped 27 of 28 shots in the Flames 4-1 win over the Coyotes on Thursday. Since being recalled from Adirondack he has gone 2-0-0 with a 0.50 GAA, .984 SV% and one shutout. He will make his third straight start tonight in San Jose—the Sharks are 5-5-0 in their last 10 games.

He has eight goals and 12 assists (20 points) in 67 career NHL games. He will centre the third line with Lance Bouma and Joe Colborne on his wings.
Ramo (upper-body) will travel on the Flames four-game road-trip; won’t play Thursday.
Ramo did not practice on Wednesday and will miss his second straight game with an upper-body injury, but will accompany the team on their four-game trip and could play before the All-Star break. Joni Ortio will start with Jonas Hiller as his back-up tomorrow night.
Ortio will make his second straight start on Thursday.
In his first NHL start of the season, Ortio stopped all 36 shots that he faced in the Flames 1-0 shutout win over the Canucks on Saturday. The shutout earned Ortio another start tonight vs. the visiting Coyotes. He should make for a strong spot-start, especially in win-only leagues—The Coyotes have lost four of six while being outscored 24-13.
