After splitting their first two outings on Friday and Saturday, the Calgary Flames will try to end their trip to Penticton on a winning note when they face the Winnipeg Jets. The Flames got trounced by Vancouver on Friday, but bounced back with a good outing and an overtime victory against Edmonton on Saturday. Can the Flames follow the advice of the great singer Meat Loaf and take out out of three of their Young Stars Classic games? Let’s find out in a Monday matinee game!
The puck drops shortly after 11 a.m. MT and you can catch the action streamed live on the Flames’ website (and their various social media channels) and hear the action on Sportsnet 960 The Fan!

Players to watch: Y’know who’s been consistently noticeable so far? Lucas Ciona! Y’know who’s been a little less noticeable? Parker Bell. That’s not to say that Bell’s been bad, far from it, but he just hasn’t projected himself (so far) in a way that allows one to imagine what his role would be in the AHL. Both Ciona and Bell are entering their 20-year-old seasons. Ciona seems like a lock to go pro. Bell’s status seems a bit fuzzier. He can bring it into focus with a good finish to this tournament.

The Jets

Projected lines via Jamie Thomas:
Daniel Torgersson – Brad Lambert – Connor McClennon
Colby Barlow – Chaz Lucius – Nikita Chibrikov
Carson Golder – Jacob Julien – Parker Ford
Thomas Caron – Henri Nikkanen – Connor
Simon Lundmark – Elias Salomonsson
Dmitri Kuzmin – Simon Kubicek
Artemi Kniazev –  Jordan Tourigny
Thomas Milic starts in net, backed up by Domenic DiVincentiis.
Players to watch: Man, take your pick from Winnipeg’s projected top six here. In particular, Brad Lambert and Chaz Lucius are fascinating prospects and should be big, big pieces of the Jets’ future.
