David Wolf’s North American experiment has come to an end as he has decided to return to the Hamburg Freezers, according to the team’s announcement on Twitter.
The Calgary Flames signed the big forward to a one-year, $925,000 deal for the 2014-15 campaign after Wolf recorded 14 goals, 26 assists, and 152 penalty minutes in 48 games with the Hamburg Freezers of Germany’s top league.
Wolf’s tough play made it easy to link him with Flames president Brian Burke’s preferences and that belief only grows stronger with the knowledge that Wolf was invited to a Toronto Maple Leafs prospect camp when Burke was the general manager back in 2012.
The undrafted 25-year-old ended up spending most of 2014-15 with the AHL’s Adirondack Flames where he recorded 38 points and 168 penalty minutes in 59 AHL contests. However, he also participated in three regular season games with the Calgary Flames and logged 10:25 minutes in Game 2 of Calgary’s second round series against the Anaheim Ducks.
