Calgary Flames prospect update: stoppage time

The Calgary Flames season is currently paused, but before too long NHL games will be back. In the meantime, the vast majority of the club’s young prospects remain active throughout the hockey world.

Let’s conduct our weekly check-in!

This and that:

  • D Johannes Kinnvall and G Tyler Parsons are on the Flames’ season-opening injury reserve after suffering injuries.
  • We’re not including Juuso Välimäki’s AHL run in here because (a) it’s been six games and (b) he’s played enough NHL games that we no longer consider him a prospect.
  • The QMJHL has paused for a few weeks due to COVID-19 surges, so there will be no games until January 7.

Jack Beck – RW, Ottawa 67’s, OHL

Calgary’s sixth round pick (168th overall) in the 2021 NHL Draft

Change from last week

Beck remains injured and is listed as week-to-week. He hasn’t played since Nov. 7. Despite this, he remains out of the top goal-scorers in the OHL.

Jake Boltmann – D, University of Notre Dame Fighting Irish, NCAA/Big10

Calgary’s third round pick (80th overall) in the 2020 NHL Draft

GP G A P 5v5 P P1 5v5 P1 NHLe

Notre Dame was off this week. They’re back in action on Jan. 1 against Niagara University.

Lucas Ciona – LW, Seattle Thunderbirds, WHL

Calgary’s sixth round pick (173rd overall) in the 2021 NHL Draft

Up to date 26 5 8 13 10 9 6 12.38
Change from last week 2 1 0 1 1 1 1 n/a

Ciona hasn’t moved the needle a ton this season offensively, but he’s been fairly consistent in all three zones for the Thunderbirds. He’s also been quite consistent offensively, good for a point every two games almost like clockwork.

Matthew Coronato – RW, Harvard University Crimson, NCAA/HE

Calgary’s first round pick (13th overall) in the 2021 NHL Draft; #1-ranked prospect

GP G A P 5v5 P P1 5v5 P1 NHLe
Up to date 11 6 6 12 9 11 9 25.05
Change from last week 2 2 0 2 2 2 2 -0.46

Harvard was off this week. Coronato was named to Team USA’s roster for the World Juniors, so he’ll likely miss Harvard’s games on Jan. 2, Jan. 7 and Jan. 8. (World Junior games run until Jan. 6, but travel will probably wipe out the last two games.)

Walker Duehr – RW, Stockton Heat, AHL

Free agent signing

GP G A P 5v5 P P1 5v5 P1 NHLe
Up to date 15 4 2 6 3 4 3 15.94
Change from last week 3 2 0 2 1 2 1 +2.66

Duehr continues to chug along. He’s not a high-end offensive talent, but he’s been quite good at picking his spots for Stockton. He had a two-goal game this week.

Lucas Feuk – LW, Västerviks IK, HockeyAllsvenskan / Nybro Vikings IF/Väsby IK, HockeyEttan

Calgary’s fourth round pick (116th overall) in the 2019 NHL Draft

HockeyEttan up to date 10 1 6 7 5 4 4 n/a
Change from last week 2 0 1 1 1 1 1

Feuk continues to be completely adequate in Sweden’s third division. Reports are that his loan ends at the end of December, and it’s unclear what will happen with him once that occurs.

Ryan Francis – C, Stockton Heat, AHL / Saint John Sea Dogs, QMJHL

Calgary’s fifth round pick (143rd overall) in the 2020 NHL Draft; #8-ranked prospect

GP G A P 5v5 P P1 5v5 P1 NHLe
AHL up to date 4 0 0 0 0 0 0 0.00

QMJHL up to date 18 6 17 23 12 17 9 29.76
Change from last week 2 0 3 3 1 1 1 +0.65

Francis has seemingly found his offensive swagger again. He’s on a four game point streak. He hasn’t scored a goal since Dec. 4, but he’s still having a positive on-ice impact for the Sea Dogs.

Glenn Gawdin – C, Stockton Heat, AHL

St. Louis’ fourth round pick (116th overall) in the 2015 NHL Draft; free agent signing; #10-ranked prospect

GP G A P 5v5 P P1 5v5 P1 NHLe
Up to date 21 9 15 24 15 15 11 45.55
Change from last week 3 0 0 0 0 0 0 -7.59

We hope you’re sitting down: Gawdin went quiet this week, registering zero points. He’s still one of the top 200-foot players in the AHL and one of Stockton’s top players, but he just… couldn’t bury anything this week.

Emil Heineman – LW, Leksands IF, SHL/CHL

Florida’s second round pick (43rd overall) in the 2020 NHL Draft; acquired via trade; #14-ranked prospect

Leksands is back in action on Boxing Day.

Cole Huckins – LW, Acadie-Bathurst Titan, QMJHL

Calgary’s third round pick (77th overall) in the 2021 NHL Draft; #19-ranked prospect

GP G A P 5v5 P P1 5v5 P1 NHLe
Up to date 24 11 11 22 16 18 12 21.35
Change from last week 2 1 1 2 2 1 1 +0.18

Huckins feels like a less physical, more offensively impactful version of Lucas Ciona. He gets on the scoresheet in almost every game, but usually only with a single point.

Cole Jordan – D, Moose Jaw Warriors, WHL

Calgary’s fifth round pick (141st overall) in the 2021 NHL Draft

GP G A P 5v5 P P1 5v5 P1 NHLe
Up to date 7 1 1 2 1 1 1 7.08
Change from last week 2 0 1 1 0 0 0 +2.13

Jordan returned from what was apparently a lower-body injury last week – for whatever reason, the WHL’s weekly injury report called it an illness… Anyhow, he’s cementing himself as an all-situations defender with the Warriors, with reports from the rink that he was tremendously unlucky to only get the single assist this week.

Rory Kerins – C, Soo Greyhounds, OHL

Calgary’s sixth round pick (174th overall) in the 2020 NHL Draft; #18-ranked prospect

Up to date 26 14 30 44 27 33 22 44.82
Change from last week 3 1 4 5 3 4 3 -0.09

Kerins gonna Kerins. The forward remained among the top offensive players in the OHL with two multi-point games sandwiched around a zero point game.

Justin Kirkland – LW, Stockton Heat, AHL

Nashville’s third round pick (62nd overall) in the 2014 NHL Draft; free agent signing

Kirkland was quiet in Stockton’s first two games, then missed the third due to an injury.

Demetrios Koumontzis – LW, Arizona State University Sun Devils, NCAA/Ind.

Calgary’s fourth round pick (108th overall) in the 2018 NHL Draft

GP G A P 5v5 P P1 5v5 P1 NHLe
Up to date 20 4 5 9 7 7 7 12.29

Koumontzis had an assist. Arizona State are back in action Jan. 1 against Cornell.

Yan Kuznetsov – D, Stockton Heat, AHL / Saint John Sea Dogs, QMJHL

Calgary’s second round pick (50th overall) in the 2020 NHL Draft; #15-ranked prospect

It’s early but Kuznetsov is settling in nice with Saint John. He had a pair of power play helpers: one primary and one secondary.

Calgary’s fifth round pick (150th overall) in the 2019 NHL Draft

Pelletier is third in the AHL in points, Stockton’s leading scorer, and generally having a great rookie pro season.

Emilio Pettersen – LW, Stockton Heat, AHL

Calgary’s sixth round pick (167th overall) in the 2018 NHL Draft; #11-ranked prospect

GP G A P 5v5 P P1 5v5 P1 NHLe

Change from last week 2 0 2 2 1 1 0 -0.11

Poirier cashed in with another two assists. He’s been very consistent for Saint John this season.. He’s 3rd among QMJHL defenders in points. Coincidentally, Saint John just traded for the 4th leading defensive  scorer this week as they continue to load up for the Memorial Cup.

Colton Poolman – D, Stockton Heat, AHL

Free agent signing

GP G A P 5v5 P P1 5v5 P1 NHLe
Up to date 20 0 4 4 3 1 1 7.97
Change from last week 3 0 0 0 0 0 0 -1.41

Playing primarily with Valimaki, Poolman went pointless this week.

Martin Pospisil – C, Stockton Heat, AHL

Calgary’s fourth round pick (105th overall) in the 2018 NHL Draft; #16-ranked prospect

GP G A P 5v5 P P1 5v5 P1 NHLe
