April 2013 - Tyler Wotherspoon has signed a three-year entry-level contract with the Calgary Flames. Brendan Ross

December, 2012 - Somewhat of a surprise, Wotherspoon was named to the final roster that will represent Canada in the 2013 WJC. He will be counted on to be a steady defensive presence for the Canadians. Rich Dillon


December 2012 - Tyler Wotherspoon was one of 12 defensemen invited to take part in Canada's National Junior Selection camp for the 2013 World Junior Championships in Ufa, Russia. He remains a long shot to make the final roster but the experience of competing will be a positive one. Brendan Ross


April 2012 - Wotherspoon is a solid and mobile defensive defenseman. He is a main piece on the Portland Winterhawks backend, and is relied upon to shut down the opposition’s top lines. In 67 games this year he recorded seven goals and 21 assists for 28 points. Although he isn’t a dominant player at either end of the rink, he is versatile and can fit into any type of system. Should spend another year in the WHL before making the jump to the AHL.


Fantasy Outlook: D-

Will never be a big fantasy scorer, but should make the NHL as a reliable defenseman.
