CALGARY, AB -- Calgary Flames 2013 fifth round pick Eric Roy has had a blazing start to the 2013-14 campaign, posting 8 points in 4 games.

The rearguard is in his fourth season with the Brandon Wheat Kings and will likely be on the Wheaties top defensive pairing throughout the year.

Morgan Klimchuk, the Flames third first round pick in the 2013 NHL Draft, has suited up for five games with the Regina Pats and looks like he has shaken off any effects of the abdominal wall strain he suffered at the Flames training camp as he currently leads the team in scoring.

Coda Gordon has also had a strong start to the 2013-14 season. He is tied for third in team scoring with four points in his first four games. Gordon was the Flames sixth round selection in the 2012 NHL Draft.

Blueliner Brett Kulak is currently tied for third in team scoring and is also tied for first in amongst defencemen in Vancouver. Kulak is in his third full season with the Giants and, like Roy, will be logging a lot of minutes in a top-pairing role with the club.
