Wilson recalled by Flames, Piskula returns to Heat

The Abbotsford Heat and Calgary Flames exchanged defencemen on Friday morning, as Clay Wilson was recalled to the NHL parent club and Joe Piskula was sent down.

Wilson's call-up is well-deserved – the mobile blueliner is currently fifth in scoring among AHL defencemen with 20 points (six goals, 14 assists) in 32 games with the Heat. That point total is also good for fourth-best on the team.

Piskula, a steady stay-at-home blueliner, had been up with the Flames for the past three weeks. He'd gotten into five NHL games in that time period, going pointless while registering two penalty minutes and a -5 rating. In 18 games with the Heat earlier this season, Piskula had a goal, three assists and a +1 rating.
