The hockey season is starting up rather rapidly throughout the world. European teams have begun their regular seasons. Canadian major junior teams are a few weeks into their seasons. North American minor league teams are into the meat of the training camps. College teams are just getting underway.
In short? We finally have some substantive prospect updates to share.

The Calgary Flames roster is getting a little bit closer to its opening night form.
The club announced today that they've released Lauri Korpikoski from his professional tryout.
The move drops the Flames to 27 players: two goalies, nine defensemen and 16 forwards (including Ladislav Smid, Daniel Pribyl and the contract-less Johnny Gaudreau).

The National Hockey League roster deadline is this coming Tuesday afternoon at 3 p.m. MT. At that time, teams must be both compliant with the league's roster requirements and with their salary cap requirements.
With a few days and a few decisions remaining, how are the Calgary Flames looking in respect to their cap compliance?

It's October, and October means hockey.
The Hitmen's season is already underway. Soon, the Flames will be going, too. But tonight, hockey in Calgary belongs to a different team, as the 2015-16 Clarkson Cup champion Calgary Inferno officially kick off their 2016-17 season.
The season begins tonight, at 7:45 p.m. in Winsport's Markin MacPhail Centre, in the 'A' arena. Tickets are available for just $15.
