As long as the team is healthy, Nakladal will not recieve any power play minutes and remains a depth option. His low shooting percentage for Stockton does not yet warrent those minutes regardless. – Joel Henderson


Oct 2015 – After being called up to the Flames briefly, he's been returned to Stockton after being a healthy scratch.
