It’s a new year, friends, as the calendar has flipped over into 2022. Some leagues are chugging along, while some leagues have seen their schedules hampered by the omicron variant of COVID-19. As a result, the last couple of weeks have been somewhat quiet for a lot of the farmhands.
Let’s check in on the Calgary Flames’ prospects and see who’s managed to keep their momentum going.

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 seven 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 17.

Jack Beck – RW, Ottawa 67’s, OHL

Calgary’s sixth round pick (168th overall) in the 2021 NHL Draft
GPGAP5v5 PP15v5 P1NHLe
Up to date1211617915937.52
Change from last week
Beck remains injured and is listed as week-to-week. He hasn’t played since Nov. 7.

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

Calgary’s third round pick (80th overall) in the 2020 NHL Draft
GPGAP5v5 PP15v5 P1NHLe
Up to date1917875411.50
Change from last week2000000-1.34
Notre Dame split a pair of games with Niagara, but Boltmann didn’t hit the scoresheet.

Lucas Ciona – LW, Seattle Thunderbirds, WHL

Calgary’s sixth round pick (173rd overall) in the 2021 NHL Draft
GPGAP5v5 PP15v5 P1NHLe
Up to date265813109612.38
Change from last week
Ciona missed Seattle’s games over the past two weeks due to an unspecified injury.

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

Calgary’s first round pick (13th overall) in the 2021 NHL Draft; #1-ranked prospect
GPGAP5v5 PP15v5 P1NHLe
Up to date116612911925.05
Change from last week
Harvard returned to action after the winter break, but Coronato was given a brief post World Juniors break to go see his family and so he missed that game.

Walker Duehr – RW, Stockton Heat, AHL

Free agent signing
GPGAP5v5 PP15v5 P1NHLe
Up to date1843735315.50
Change from last week3011010-0.44
Duehr registered an assist this past two weeks, more or less maintaining his modest but consistent offensive output from essentially the entire season.

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

Calgary’s fourth round pick (116th overall) in the 2019 NHL Draft
GPGAP5v5 PP15v5 P1NHLe
Allsvenskan up to date101122116.51
Change from last week
HockeyEttan up to date124610675n/a
Change from last week2303131
Feuk scored three goals this past two weeks. His loan with Väsby was also extended until the end of the season, so he’ll be in Sweden’s third level of pro hockey for the remainder of the season. It’s not a bad league, but it produces so few NHL players that there’s no NHLe coefficient for it.

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
GPGAP5v5 PP15v5 P1NHLe

Up to date249152415151139.85
Change from last week3000000-5.70
Gawdin, for once, went entirely silent over the last couple weeks from an offensive standpoint. He remains one of Stockton’s most useful players and one of their top offensive players.

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
GPGAP5v5 PP15v5 P1NHLe

Cole Jordan – D, Moose Jaw Warriors, WHL

Calgary’s fifth round pick (141st overall) in the 2021 NHL Draft
GPGAP5v5 PP15v5 P1NHLe
Up to date101121114.95
Change from last week3000000-2.13
Jordan was held off the scoresheet this past two weeks. And he won’t get a chance to get off that goose-egg for a little bit, as Moose Jaw’s been shut down for at least a week due to a COVID outbreak within the team.

Rory Kerins – C, Soo Greyhounds, OHL

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

Justin Kirkland – LW, Stockton Heat, AHL

Nashville’s third round pick (62nd overall) in the 2014 NHL Draft; free agent signing
GPGAP5v5 PP15v5 P1NHLe
Up to date25551048312.75
Change from last week3202121-1.74
Kirkland had two goals over the past two weeks, a big leap forward offensively for a veteran player who hasn’t really scored much this season.

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

GPGAP5v5 PP15v5 P1NHLe

Up to date23816241116823.96
Change from last week2235231+2.21
