Flames anticipate having Dillon Dube available for Thursday night

The Calgary Flames returned to the practice ice on Tuesday morning after a day off on Monday. A welcome sight was rookie Dillon Dube, who was a full participant in practice.

As of this writing, Dube remains on the injured reserve list. However, the Flames have an open roster spot after sending Anthony Peluso to Stockton, so he can be activated at any time.

Lines in Tuesday’s practice were as follows (per Pat Steinberg):

Gaudreau – Monahan – Lindholm
Tkachuk – Backlund – Bennett
Dube – Jankowski – Neal
Frolik – Ryan – Hathaway

Giordano – Brodie
Hanifin – Hamonic
Valimaki – Andersson

The extras appear to be Austin Czarnik, Dalton Prout and Michael Stone. Per Derek Wills, Mike Smith practiced in the starter’s net.
