Calgary, AB – Calgary Flames announced today that forward J.D. Watt’s contract with the Calgary Flames has been terminated, effective immediately.

“J.D. notified us on Monday that he was no longer interested in pursuing his career with the Calgary Flames organization,” said Flames Acting General Manager Jay Feaster. “He informed us of his decision and as a result, he was then suspended and cleared unconditional waivers this morning. We are moving forward in the best interests of the hockey club, our players in Abbotsford and the Flames organization.” 

Watt has played 27 games with the Abbotsford Heat of the American Hockey League this season, recording one goal and three assists for four points while accumulating 73 penalty minutes.  The 23 year old native of Cremona, AB was originally drafted by the Flames in the 4th round (111th overall) of the 2005 NHL Entry Draft.
