The Calgary Flames have recalled defensemen Mark Giordano and Richie Regehr and left wing Tomi Maki. They will replace Nilson, Warrener, and Zyuzin. Yelle is not ready to come back and the first two have groin problems.
Giordano has appeared in five games for the Knights, notching two assists, 8 penalty minutes and a +4 rating. In ten games for the Flames this season, the native of Toronto has scored two goals and earned eight penalty minutes and a +3 rating.
Regehr was recalled to Calgary on Tuesday, December 5th and played in his first game with the Flames on Saturday, a 5-3 win against Vancouver. He was re-assigned to Omaha after the game. In 22 games with the Knights this season, the native of Bandung, Indonesia has five goals and nine assists for 14 points. He also has 37 penalty minutes and a +16 plus/minus rating which is tied for third best in the AHL.
Maki will be making his NHL debut when he plays in his first game for Calgary. In 21 games for the Knights this season Maki has one goal and five assists for six points and six penalty minutes. (Wow, he must be a defensive specialist….) Last season, his first in North America, Maki had 12 goals and 17 assists for 29 points and 33 penalty minutes. He was the only member of the Knights to play in all 80 games.
