Brett Pollock
Tim Harrison (no contract)
Keegan Kanzig
Ryan Culkin
Stepan Falkovsky (no contract)
Mason McDonald
Tom McCollum
The Flames own Adirondack (at least until this summer) and could technically put as many of their prospects on that team as they want with the following caveats:

1. If a player is on a non-ELC NHL deal, they need to give their permission to be assigned to the ECHL.
2. Some AHL deals could have a no ECHL assignment clause.
3. The ECHL has a salary cap, which needs to be managed.
4. The ECHL unlike the AHL has roster limits. 18 active player + 2 players on reserve + unlimited injured reserve
5. The Flames have an agreement with the Devils to take some of their players in Adirondack
