Tyler Wotherspoon: Signs AHL deal
Wotherspoon -- who was at Devils training camp on a PTO -- inked a one-year, minor-league contract with AHL Utica on Wednesday.
While Wotherspoon wasn't able to parlay his professional tryout into an NHL-level deal with New Jersey, he will play for the team's minor-league affiliate. Since Wotherspoon is on a minor-league-only contract, he will not be eligible to be called up from the AHL unless he signs a two-way NHL pact.... See More ... See Less

Wotherspoon has signed a professional tryout offer with the Devils.

Flyers' Tyler Wotherspoon: On waivers Monday
Wotherspoon was placed on waivers Monday.

Flyers' Tyler Wotherspoon: Left off final roster
Wotherspoon won't be included on Vancouver's 31-man playoff roster, Adam Kimelman of NHL.com reports.

Flyers' Tyler Wotherspoon: Included in camp roster
Wotherspoon has been promoted to the Flyers' training camp roster for Phase 3.
Wotherspoon led all AHL Lehigh Valley defensemen with 22 points in 54 contests this season and should probably be considered the club's eighth blueliner on the depth chart. In addition to Wotherspoon, the club also added forward German Rubtsov, defensemen Andy Welinski, Nate Prosser, Yegor Zamula and Mark Friedman and goaltenders Alex Lyon and Kirill Ustimenko....

Flyers' Tyler Wotherspoon: Brought in by Philadelphia
Wotherspoon signed a two-year, two-way contract with the Flyers on Monday.
Wotherspoon was waived by the eventual Stanley Cup-champion Blues ahead of the 2018-19 campaign, but he stuck around with AHL San Antonio and proceeded to record four goals and 18 assists over 70 minor-league contests. Still, even with a clean slate, Wotherspoon is merely a depth option for fantasy purposes.... See More ... See Less
Blues' Tyler Wotherspoon: Cut loose by St. Louis
Wotherspoon was waived by the Blues on Friday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.
The Blues sent six players to the waiver wire ahead of the weekend. Wotherspoon signed a one-year, two-way deal with the club in July, but now St. Louis is at risk of losing him to another team. Wotherspoon recorded seven goals and 30 assists to complement a plus-19 rating over 67 games for AHL Stockton last year.... See More ... See Less
Blues' Tyler Wotherspoon: Picked up by Blues
Wotherspoon signed a one-year, two-way deal with the Blues on Sunday, Darren Dreger of TSN reports.
Wotherspoon has merely dabbled at the NHL level, as he has played mainly for AHL Stockton and compiled 13 goals and 42 assists over the last two seasons. If Jay Bouwmeester (hip) and Carl Gunnarsson (knee) can't play right out of training camp, Wotherspoon could get some looks. However, he's a long way away from being fantasy relevant.... See More ...

Flames' Tyler Wotherspoon: Waived by Calgary
The Flames placed Wotherspoon on waivers Tuesday, James Mirtle of The Athletic Toronto reports.
There's still hope for the 2011 second-round pick as an NHL prospect, but the Flames evidently believe Wotherspoon needs more time to develop in the AHL before getting another shot with the big club. He'll likely spend the majority of the 2017-18 campaign in the minors, but it wouldn't be surprising to see the 24-year-old blueliner draw into a few games with Calgary this season.... See More ...

Flames' Tyler Wotherspoon: Re-signs with Flames
Wotherspoon agreed to terms on a one-year, two-way contract with Calgary on Tuesday. The deal is worth $650,000 at the NHL level.
Wotherspoon spent much of last season refining his game with the Flames' AHL affiliate in Stockton, where he posted 18 points and an impressive plus-30 rating. A permanent roster spot with the big club is not out of the question for the 24-year-old, but he'll truly need to earn it among a decently stout Calgary defensive corps, leaving him off the fantasy radar for the time being....

Flames' Tyler Wotherspoon: Sent down to AHL
Wotherspoon was returned to the minors Monday, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The FAN reports.
Wotherspoon will be swapped out on the Flames' 23-man roster for fellow defenseman Brett Kulak who was brought up in a corresponding move. The 23-year-old Wotherspoon has played a mere four of Calgary's previous 13 contests and averaged a paltry 10:54 of ice time when in the lineup. Rather than let the blueliner warm the end of the bench or a seat in the press box, the organization has opted to return him to AHL Stockton where he can continue developing his game.... See More ...

Flames' Tyler Wotherspoon: Called up to NHL on Monday
Wotherspoon was recalled from AHL Stockton on Monday.
The defenseman only has six points in 20 games in the AHL, so don't expect him to be an explosive offensive blueliner in the NHL. With some depth issues on defense, the Flames simply needed another body.... See More ... See Less
Flames' Tyler Wotherspoon: Promoted to NHL
Wotherspoon was called up from the minors Thursday.
Wotherspoon has yet to suit up in an NHL contest this season, but he may crack the lineup Thursday against Arizona. The defenseman is having a solid AHL campaign, as he leads Stockton in rating (plus-15) to go with a goal and five helpers over 19 games. Calgary is 21st in the league in goals allowed per game at 2.83 and could certainly use a stoic defender on the blue line.... See More ... See Less
