Observations: 

April 2017: The kid has edge and toughness which is severely lacking in the Flames system. Healey attended Calgary's development camp in the summer of 2016 but had a difficult time truly standing out. Flames management kept tabs on him for various reasons including his ties to Alberta, his aggressive playing style, his work ethic, and the fact that his fitness testing was one of the best during that summer showcase. 

Josh has a lot of edge to his game. He shoots left and plays left which presumably fits a future opening for a bottom pairing spot at some point. He was dominating the game from a physical side of things, and had his best offensive campaign by collecting four goals and 21 assists with a whopping 70 PIMS. It would be surprising if he was in the NHL next year and with the Flames system it might be tough to hurdle the talent, but he is a super deep fantasy option to add significant hits, grit and PIMS. - Joel Henderson
