The Calgary Flames reduced their roster to 22 players Monday by
assigning six players including goaltender Brent Krahn and rookie
Robyn Regehr's brother Richie and Mark Giordano were the two
defencemen sent down to Omaha of the American Hockey League while
wingers Lynn Loyns and Brantt Myhres were also demoted.
With the assigment of Krahn, Philippe Sauve will play backup to
Miikka Kiprusoff in the Flames net. Krahn appeared in five games,
giving up eight goals on 107 shots for a goals-against-average of
2.40 and a save percentage of .916.
Nystrom was drafted tenth overall by the Flames in the 2002 Entry
Draft and completed four years at the University of Michigan.
