HUGE Props For Cal *updated*

Just came across an article on Mr. Clutterbuck on the AHL's website. Cal's been playing on a line with Aaron Voros and Adrian Foster, and they are apparently tasked with being energy/pest type guys.

Cal's not the biggest guy in the league (5-11, 205) but he's young (DOB 11-18-87) and he seems like he's willing to do whatever it takes.

Keep at it Cal!

**UPDATE**

Oh, happy day!

Russo reports that the Wild have called up Cal the Pal as insurance in case Demo can't play on this road trip. While there are a couple other guys competing with him to dress (Foy, Boogaard) at least his strong play is getting noticed - not something you can say about Foy, for example.

While this means they passed over some bigger names (Pouliot, Kalus, Irmen), it also means that the team is rewarding those that earn rewards - which is exactly what they should be doing.

Atta boy Cal!

Woo Hoo! Knew this wouldn't take long. He has been the only one showing a pulse among the Junior Wild Bunch. Constantine really needs to light a fire under Pouliot, et al.

Pouliot needs to figure out that even if he plays well at a higher level, he still needs to play well at a lower level to get called up to the higher level. Simple math.
