We’re into the second week of November and pretty much all of the Calgary Flames’ major prospects have begun their seasons – aside from Connor Zary, but we’ll get to that.
Let’s check in with the Flames’ players outside of the NHL.

This and that:

  • Johannes Kinnvall and Tyler Persons are on the Flames’ season-opening injury reserve after suffering injuries.
  • Walker Duehr was recalled to the Flames but hasn’t dressed yet.
  • Connor Zary has been activated from the season-opening injury reserve and is expected to make his season debut for Stockton on Wednesday against Bakersfield.

Beck was held out from Ottawa’s game on Tuesday due to bumps and bruises, but isn’t expected to miss much time. He is, simply put, good at scoring goals. He’s shooting 39%, which is clearly something he can sustain all season.

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

By any standard for a college blueliner, Boltmann had a very nice offensive week. He seems to have turned a corner after not registering a single point at all last season in either the USHL or NCAA.
