Description: Flames winger Sven Baertschi will miss Monday's game against Carolina due to illness.
Insight: Baertschi has all kinds of ability and is one of the team's top prospect, but has yet to score in four games this season.

Jonas Hiller, G10/29/2014 10:24:00 AM
Description: Flames goalie Jonas Hiller stopped 18-of-19 shots against the Canadiens, but it wasn't enough to earn a victory.
Insight: Montreal goalie Carey Price was even better than Hiller was. With the score tied, 1-1, the game entered the shoot out where Price shut down the Flames, and Hiller yielded one goal.
Karri Ramo, G10/26/2014 10:21:00 AM
Description: Flames goalie Karri Ramo made 27 saves, but took the loss om Saturday against the Capitals.
Insight: He faced 30 shots on goal, and is now 2-2-1 with a 2.37 GAA and .914 save percentage. Ramo should only be considered an option for owners, as a last resort type of play.

Description: Flames defenseman Dennis Wideman scored his fifth goal of the season,in Saturday's loss to Washington.
Insight: It was Calgary's only goal on the night, but fantasy owners do not mind. Wideman is off to a solid start offensively, with six total points, and those owners need to make sure he is in all lineups.
Johnny Gaudreau, LW10/25/2014 12:23:00 PM
Description: Flames winger Johnny Gaudreau is plus-four in game games to start his rookie campaign.
Insight: Gaudreau has responded well since being a healthy scratch about a week ago. He has a goal and two assists on the season as well. He is a worthy fantasy player in most leagues.

Description: Flames goalie Karri Ramo stopped 20-of-22 shots in Tuesday's overtime loss to Tampa Bay.
Insight: He is now 2-1-1 and continues to split starts with Jonas Hiller. Neither guy is a great fantasy option, unless one is able to separate himself from the other.
Mason Raymond, LWHot10/20/2014 12:37:00 PM
Description: Calgary winger Mason Raymond led the team Sunday night with a goal and two assists.
Insight: In case you haven't been paying attention, Raymond's hot. He already has five goals (on 20 shots) and two assists in seven games while playing on the Flames third line.
Johnny Gaudreau, LW10/19/2014 10:42:00 AM
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.

Description: Flames backup goalie Karri Ramo will get the start Friday night at Columbus.

Description: According to Calgary beat writer Randy Sportak of the Calgary Sun, Devin Setoguchi will be a healthy scratch Friday night.
Insight: Zero points and a minus two rating while playing on the top line doesn't cut it. Josh Jooris will replace Setoguchi alongside Jiri Hudler and Sean Monahan.
Jonas Hiller, G10/15/2014 10:59:00 PM
Description: Flames goalie Jonas Hiller shined in Wednesday's overtime win against Chicago.
Insight: The Blackhawks did not let up as they fired 50 shots. However, Hiller was fabulous as he saved 50 of them. Consider Hiller as a second option at the goaltender position.
Mikael Backlund, C10/15/2014 10:55:00 PM
Description: Calgary center Mikael Backlund scored the overtime winner against Chicago.
Insight: It was his first goal of the season, and while he had 18 a season ago, Backlund will continue to make his presence felt with penalty minutes, moving forward.

Description: Flames goalie Karri Ramo stopped all except two shots as he beat the Predators, 3-2, in Nashville on Tuesday.

Devin Setoguchi, RW10/11/2014 7:48:00 PM
Description: Devin Setoguchi will make his first official appearance in a Calgary sweater Saturday night.
Insight: Setoguchi is expected to play on a line with Joe Colborne and Johnny Gaudreau. He's not the scorer he once was after recording 11 goals and 16 assists with the Jets last season.
Jonas Hiller, G10/11/2014 12:45:00 PM
Description: Flames goalie Jonas Hiller will start in net against the Blues on Saturday.
Insight: Hiller was great in his Falmes debut against the Canucks on Wednesday, but Calgary lost, 3-2. Hiller and other goalie Karri Ramo are expected to share time in the net this year, but Hiller appears to have the edge at the moment.
Sam Bennett, C10/10/2014 10:23:00 AM
Description: Calgay center Sam Bennett is dealing with a shoulder problem will require surgery and he's expected to miss 4-6 months.

Description: Calgay center Sam Bennett is dealing with a shoulder problem which may end up requiring surgery.
Insight: The 18-year-old has a bright future, but it looks like the start will be delayed.
Mike Cammalleri, LW9/29/2014 6:28:00 PM
Description: Devils coach Pete DeBoer is not 100 percent sure free agent signee Michael Cammalleri will play with the top line this year according to the Bergen Record.
Insight: DeBoer actually said that he is not sold on Travis Zajac, Jaromir Jagr and Cammalleri as his top line and one has to assume that Cammalleri would be the odd man out. Zajac and Jagr had pretty good chemistry last season. Still, Cammalleri was brought in to help the Devils score, so he is still the best bet to occupy a top-line spot.
Sean Monahan, C9/23/2014 2:15:00 PM
Description: Calgary winger Sean Monahan posted a solid 22-goal rookie season and we expect him to improve on that total this season.
Insight: If the soon-to-be 20-year old lands on a line with Jiri Hudler he could take a significant jump, though at this time we think he'll be on the second line. We still like a five-goal improvement.
Mark Giordano, D9/23/2014 2:09:00 PM
Description: If you are looking for blueline scoring, look no further than Calgary defenseman Mark Giordano.
Insight: Giordano was second on the team in scoring with 47 points despite missing 18 games. TSN has projected 15 goals and 38 assists this season making him an elite fantasy defenseman.
Jiri Hudler, RW9/23/2014 2:06:00 PM
Description: Flames right wing Jiri Hudler led the team in scoring last season and we think will do it again in 2014-15.
Insight: Hudler scored 54 points last season and we're projecting 52 this time around. It will certainly depend on which linemates he gets paired with.
Matt Stajan, CCold9/23/2014 2:05:00 PM
Description: Calgary center Matt Stajan gets plenty of ice time, but isn't producing statistics for fantasy owners.
Insight: Stajan scored 14 goals with 19 assists last season and we have him producing in a slightly lower range in 2014-15 with 24 points.
Curtis Glencross, LW9/23/2014 2:02:00 PM
Description: Calgary left wing Curtis Glencross plays on the first line with Matt Stajan and Jiri Hudler, but has yet to prove he can put up fantasy-worthy number.
Insight: He totaled just 24 points last season and TSN projections have him with a 15 goal, 15 assist projection which just isn't enough for fantasy owners.
Jonas Hiller, G 7/1/2014 8:45:00 PM
Description: Goalie Jonas Hiller is now a member of the Calgary Flames.
Insight: Calgary gave him a two-year, $9 million contract on Tuesday. Hiller had 29 wins, a 2.48 GAA and a .911 SV% with the Anaheim Ducks last season and owns a .916 SV% in his career. The Flames were one of the worst possession teams in the NHL last season and are still in rebuilding mode, so Hiller's fantasy value takes a big hit with this move.
