Description: Flames rookie Johnny Gaudreau said the healthy scratch on Friday was "good" for him according to the Calgary Sun.
Insight: Gaudreau was pointless in the first five games of the season, so coach Bob Hartley scratched him for Friday's game. Gaudreau said he talked to Hartley and understands its a learning experience that will benefit him in the long run. His teammates have been fully supporting the rookie in the locker room. The Calgary Sun reported Gaudreau looked great in practice on Saturday and should be back in the lineup soon, maybe as early as Sunday.
