As the Calgary Flames prepare for tonight’s big game with the Dallas Stars, a bit of information by way of Chris Nichols, who regularly tweets out quotes and tidbits from various NHL personalities on radio programs (and is a sports media personality in his own right):
Dreger: “Calgary considered to be a front-runner” for Kyle Baun. Decision expected today or tomorrow. #Flames (1050)

The Flames have been previous mentioned by others, notably Elliotte Friedman and Bob McKenzie, as a team with interest in Baun, a junior from Colgate University. The club has become rather quietly a destination for good college players, with Johnny Gaudreau and Josh Jooris two of the most recent college products to make the leap to full-time NHL work with the organization.
Colgate’s Kyle Baun, sought after UFA, likely to take tonite before deciding where to sign. CHI, DET, CGY, WPG, EDM amongst most interested.
