Heat centre Byron summoned by Flames

Abbotsford Heat centre Paul Byron was called up by the Calgary Flames on Thursday.

For the second time in two days, the Calgary Flames turned to the Abbotsford Heat to help fill a roster void.

On Wednesday, it was Heat defenceman T.J. Brodie getting the call to replace Flames regular Anton Babchuk, who is sidelined with a broken hand. On Thursday, centre Paul Byron was summoned to join Brodie in Calgary. He’ll be filling in for Brendan Morrison, who was placed on injured reserve.

Byron, a 5’7″ speedster obtained in an off-season trade with the Buffalo Sabres, posted one goal and three assists in nine games with the Heat. He sat out three games after being suspended by the AHL for a hit on Ryan Strang of the Milwaukee Admirals.

The Heat open a seven-game road trip on Thursday evening, as they face the Milwaukee Admirals.
