The Stockton Heat, powered by many of the Calgary Flames’ top prospects, have won six games in a row. And elsewhere, several Flames prospects are having impressive seasons that are starting to wind down.
Let’s check in on all the Flames’ prospects!

In case you missed it:

  • Last week’s update
  • Rory Kerins is with Stockton but has yet to dress
  • Daniil Chechelev’s season has ended, as all of his teams failed to qualify for the playoffs

Boltmann has gone pointless in this entire regular season, though he projects more as a two-way shutdown guy so it isn’t entirely unexpected. He’ll play at least once more, as Notre Dame faces Penn State in the Big Ten playoffs.

Kirkland is arguably the least exciting “prospect” in Stockton right now, and that’s just fine! He’s an absolutely reliable player for them, but he lacks the flash and gaudy numbers of some of his younger teammates.
