With their first and own pick in the sixth round, the Flames have selected Eetu Tuulola, a right winger from HPK of the Finnish Liiga. Their second foray into the European prospect pool, Tuulola is a massive 6'3", 227 lbs and probably has the hardest name to spell out of all draftees.

We are (unfortunately) moving towards the end of our draft coverage. We've focused extensively on the first three rounds, now it's time for the rest.
Instead of throwing darts at a list, we're going to look for the steals of this draft. The Johnny Gaudreaus and the T.J. Brodies of this draft who have slipped for whatever reason. Players who have faced crappy circumstances (bad teams, limited ice time etc.) or scouting biases (too small for the most part) but have good enough production to warrant their names being written down on a Flames draft card.
Instead of a whole profile, we're just going to give you little tidbits on guys the Flames should be focused on during the final rounds of the draft.

Brad Treliving stated that he would not leave the first round without a goalie. He fulfilled that promise. Mere minutes after drafting Matthew Tkachuk, the Flames have solved their biggest offseason need by acquiring St. Louis Blues goaltender Brian Elliott. In return, the Flames give up the 35th overall pick and a conditional 2018 third round pick.

After a long period without a man at the helm, the Flames have officially named Glen Gulutzan as the 16th head coach in franchise history.
Despite his status as a relatively small name in NHL coaching circles, you couldn't help but be excited by Gulutzan. At this morning's press conference, Brad Treliving introduced him in a glowing fashion, and Gulutzan's words helped reinforce that.
