Abbotsford Heat forward Paul Byron received his second call-up of the season from the Calgary Flames on Monday afternoon.

The Flames’ forward depth took a hit in the wake of Sunday’s game against the Chicago Blackhawks – Matt Stajan was placed on the injured reserve after suffering a sprained ankle, and Rene Bourque was suspended two games for a hit on Chicago’s Brent Seabrook.

Byron has four goals and three assists in 18 games with the Heat this season. During an earlier stint with the Flames this fall, Byron notched two goals and a +4 rating in six games.
