In part due to their success in the years prior, the Calgary Flames had begun rehabilitating their drafting and development reputation when they began their rebuild in the spring of 2013. Jarome Iginla and Jay Bouwmeester were shipped off for prospects and (more importantly) first round selections.
As we sit in advance of the 2015 NHL Draft, three of Calgary's previous four first round selections have already played NHL games. One of them, Sean Monahan, has quietly established himself as one of the NHL's best young centers.
Here are Calgary's four most recent first round selections, beginning with one magical June where they held 10% of all of the first-round picks in the draft.

What a difference a year makes!
One calendar year ago, the Calgary Flames had zero presence at the National Hockey League's awards showcase in Las Vegas. Mark Giordano was their best hope for an award, but his Norris-caliber season was truncated by an early-season injury. This year, his season was cut short by an injury, but the Flames captain is one of four members of the organization that will appear in the MGM Grand Garden Arena this evening to see if they take home some hardware.
Here's a brief look at the Flames' awards contenders. Be sure to check out the NHL's big show beginning at 5pm MT on Sportsnet's national feed, and hang out afterwards to check out Sportsnet's documentary on former Flames enforcer Kevin Westgarth's continuing hockey journey in Europe.
