Lance Bouma

The Calgary Flames assigned forwards Lance Bouma and Paul Byron to the Abbotsford Heat on Friday morning.

Bouma, a second-year pro, is a physical left winger who posted 12 goals and eight assists for 20 points in 61 games with the Heat last season. The former Vancouver Giants captain also got into 16 games with the Flames, registering one assist, two penalty minutes and a -1 rating.

Byron, a 22-year-old centre, was obtained over the summer in a trade with the Buffalo Sabres that saw the Flames send Robyn Regehr to Buffalo. The diminutive speedster scored 53 points (26 goals, 27 assists) in 67 games with the AHL’s Portland Pirates last season, and notched a goal and an assist in eight games with the Sabres.

• The Heat are holding an intra-squad scrimmage on Friday morning at 10 a.m. at the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre, and the public is invited to attend.
