The Calgary Flames’ top affiliate, the Stockton Heat, is finally back playing. On top of that, the European teams are finishing off their regular seasons and seemingly every prospect is playing many games.
Let’s check in on all the Flames’ prospects with our weekly update.

In case you missed it:

  • Last week’s update
  • Glenn Gawdin and Artyom Zagidulin are currently with the Flames
  • Rory Kerins is with Stockton but has yet to dress

So, uh, Boltmann still has no points. But he’s playing a regular shift on the third pairing in the NCAA in his draft-plus-1 season, so that’s not awful. But mix in a secondary assist here and there, Jake.

Feuk is down in the third division, but he’s doing great and he’s established himself as one of his club’s most reliable offensive players. HockeyEttan’s standings format is a bit confusing, but Kalix should be qualifying for the post-season.

New Brunswick remains a national COVID-19 hot-spot and the next scheduled Sea Dogs game is Mar. 3, though that may be revised if the situation improves. Francis hasn’t played a game since Nov. 18 and he has yet to debut for Saint John.

Nikolayev played just over four minutes in his lone game, then missed his next game entirely. We’re presuming he’s dealing with an injury. (Loko’s the top team in the MHL, so they’re playoff bound.)
