A fairly veteran squad has landed in Saskatoon for the Calgary Flames who will take on the New York Islanders in exhibition action tonight (7 pm, Rogers Sportsnet Flames and The FAN 960). 22 players made the trip, and with no morning skate today, we won't know till pregame warmup what we're looking at in terms of lines, lineup etc.

The Calgary Flames will take on a rather veteran Phoenix Coyotes lineup tonight at the Saddledome for their fourth preseason affair this year (7:30 pm, TSN and The FAN 960). The Coyotes team will resemble very closely their opening day roster, while Calgary will have a number of notable names not playing. It's also the home debut of Henrik Karlsson in net.

For the first time in four days, Niklas Hagman was back on the practice ice at the Saddledome as the Calgary Flames continued 2010 training camp. While he returned, both Rene Bourque and Raitis Ivanans were not on the ice for what the team called maintenance reasons.

The Calgary Flames will play their third preseason game tonight at the Saddledome when they take on the Tampa Bay Lightning (7 pm, The Fan 960). Calgary hasn't played since Tuesday, when they took 3-2 and 3-1 wins against the Vancouver Canucks. Tampa Bay is coming off a game Thursday in Edmonton, where they fell 5-2 to the Oilers. A number of notes to set this game up.

The Calgary Flames reduced their training camp roster by 14 players on Friday morning, sending all 14 players to the Abbotsford Heat of the American Hockey League. Of the players, Mitch Wahl is probably the most surprising to be assigned, mostly because of how he's impressed as of late.
