To end their 2019 draft, the Flames have broken from their forward-only draft mantra and have selected goaltender Dustin Wolf at 214th overall.
#Flames, with pick No. 214, select Dustin Wolf from the Everett Silvertips.

From the Everett Silvertips of the WHL, Wolf stands at a pretty small (relative to goalies) 6’0, weighing 161 pounds. Despite slipping to the seventh round, he put up an absurd .936 SV% in 61 games as the Tips’ starter, the best SV% of all regular goalies in the WHL.
Dustin Wolf is a little undersized for a modern goaltender but he posted absolutely ridiculous numbers (.936SV%) while appearing in 61 games. Worth a shot for a Flames team that could use more talent between the pipes.

Pretty smart kid, too.
Wolf took over for Carter Hart in Everett, no small feat, and was the Western Conference Goalie of the year, first ever Silvertips goalie to win more than 40 games. Was also #WHL Scholastic Player of the Year, with a….get this, 100% average. Smart kid.

The Flames have no more picks remaining at the draft. They picked Jacob Pelletier on the first day, and have picked Ilya Nikolayev, Lucas Feuk, and Josh Nodler with their other picks today. There were no other transactions, though things could still happen.
