The move comes ahead of Friday evening’s matchup against the Boston Bruins, but the 22-year-old centreman will have to wait a little longer before making his NHL debut.
Jankowski has had a long road to the NHL since being drafted by the Flames 21st overall four years ago. The pick came as a surprise to many at the time, as the lanky St. Catharines, Ont., native was deemed far from an NHL-ready prospect.
The late-blooming prospect would go on to excel at Providence College with 43 goals and 67 assists for 110 points in 148 games, and signed his entry-level deal with Calgary shortly after.
The 6-foot-4, 215-pound forward has continued that momentum in his first AHL season with the Flames’ affiliate in Stockton, currently leading the team in assists (9) and points (12) through 13 games.
