SAN JOSE -- The opening-day roster is getting its finishing touches.

Another handful of prospects reassigned to Quad City of the American Hockey League yesterday leaves the Calgary Flames with 25 players in training camp.

Forwards Carsen Germyn, Brandon Prust, Grant Stevenson and Brett Sutter, and defenceman Adam Pardy will join the farm Flames.

Prust has been recovering from summer hip surgery and began skating this week, but still has some healing to do before getting into game action. When fully healthy and back into game shape, he could get a call or two from the NHL when the Flames need to cover for injuries.

Pardy will likely be the first blueliner to get a call-up.

Assuming goaltender Brent Krahn starts the year on injured reserve and both Matthew Lombardi (wrist) and Owen Nolan (groin) are healthy enough to play, the Flames will have to make one more cut before getting their season started Thursday night.
