The Flames have crossed one item off their offseason to-do list, signing 24 year old RFA defenceman Rinat Valiev to a one year deal.
The Calgary Flames have built their forward lines primarily through the first round. But 2016 second round pick Dillon Dube may have something to say about that.
We’ve been asking for a trade for weeks, and all we got was a corpse of one. That, and other things ahead.
With their first first round pick since 2017, many figured that the Flames would look to draft based on need. Perhaps if Spencer Knight fell far enough, they would pick up a goalie.

The Flames have selected forwards with their past 12 draft picks, spanning across the past three drafts. They’re continuing that trend with their fifth round pick, selecting forward Josh Nodler at 150th overall.
It’s the later rounds of the draft, so the picks are coming fast and furious. In the fourth round, the Flames have selected Lucas Feuk at 116th overall from Sweden.
It’s been a pretty quiet day for the Flames thus far, but they’ve finally done something, selecting Ilya Nikolayev with their third round pick.
