The Calgary Flames announced today that Andrew MacDonald, fresh off of being bought out this summer by the Philadelphia Flyers, will be joining training camp on a professional try-out agreement.
Adam Ruzicka is an interesting project. There’s no doubt that he has talent, which is why he ended up eighth on the FlamesNation Top 20 prospect list.
It wasn’t supposed to be like this. A couple of years ago, Tyler Parsons was the cream of the crop. He was #1 in the FlamesNation prospect rankings. He took a bit of a tumble his first pro season, but still landed at a very respectable 8th last year.
There’s a very good chance that in a number of years, fans and scouts alike will marvel at how Dustin Wolf went 214th in the draft. “Remember how we thought him being small would matter more than literally everything else about him?” they’ll say as Wolf wins the Vezina.
A major wrench has been thrown in the 2019-20 season for the Calgary Flames, and it’s only August.
It’s been a big summer for Demetrios Koumontzis. He was singled out positively by GM Brad Treliving at prospect camp. He got a shot with Team USA at the Summer Showcase. Even though that didn’t go as well as it could have, he immediately went to China and won the Renaissance Cup with Arizona State…
What a difference a week makes. Last week seemed like such a blessed time. FlamesNation was debating how to juggle minor league goalies. I wasn’t at City Hall protesting budget cuts. Milan Lucic was still an Oiler. It would be great to get a mulligan on these last seven days.
General manager Brad Treliving now only has two out of four potential arbitration negotiations left. Just like Rinat Valiev, the Calgary Flames have re-signed Ryan Lomberg to a one-year, two-way deal worth $700,000.
The Calgary Flames development camp has come to an end, and with that, the long summer hiatus truly begins as no one will take to the ice on behalf of the Flames organization until training camp. Despite being a little leaner on talent than in previous years, this was a great chance for Flames prospects…
If you had the Calgary Flames pegged as going into the draft, only using the five picks they had, and then leaving with some nice boys, congratulations on your insider scoop. For those of you with some questions lingering, we’re here for you.
The regular season Calgary Flames and playoff variety Calgary Flames were two very different teams. One of them had 50 wins (good), and one of them nearly got no wins (not good). Since the playoffs have ended and the playoff Flames got zero recognition, let us turn to the National Hockey League Awards and see…
If Brian Burke were still calling the shots for the Calgary Flames, there’s a decent chance you could already pencil in Alex Vlasic as their first selection at the 2019 NHL Draft. Is there a chance that he could still hear his name called with the 26th overall pick?
