Watch Live: Flames GM Treliving addresses media as camp begins

Date: 2021-09-22

After falling short of the Stanley Cup Playoffs last season, there was a sense change could be coming to Calgary — and it did, in a resonant way. Mark Giordano, the former Flames’ captain who had spent his entire 15-year NHL career with Calgary, was selected by the Seattle Kraken in the expansion draft. How to fill his leadership void is far from the only question looming over the team. Johnny Gaudreau can become an unrestricted free agent when this season is over, Matthew Tkachuk is eligible for restricted free agency and their long-term futures remain open-ended uncertainties — the resolutions to which could shape the Flames for years to come. Amid that pre-training camp uncertainty, Flames general manager Brad Treliving will address the media. His availability can be seen live on sportsnet.ca, starting Wednesday at 1 p.m. ET/11 a.m. MDT.

A rocket of a slap shot caught a sprawling Zary in the interior ankle and leg area, and he never returned after this oc

2021-22 Top 10 Calgary Flames Prospects

Date: 2021-09-21

Calgary has a very deep prospect pool. The cream at the top of their pool is solid with Connor Zary and Jakob Pelletier. Either could easily be the top-ranked guy. Overall I had to reduce my list of prospects for consideration for this ranking from 25 to just ten, and it was not easy. Beyond the top five, it begins to get very muddy and players such as Connor Mackey, Glen Gawdin, and Matthew Phillips all on the cusp of making the roster in a now. They could make the team, be buried in the AHL or lost on waivers. Some players have had years where they failed to develop, or even regressed dropping on the depth chart

Flames Training Camp Preview: Are playoffs within reach in Pacific Division?

Source: Sportsnet
Date: 2021-09-21

Of all the questions swirling around the Calgary Flames this season, there is one that looms largest: Can this team make the playoffs? Thanks to a return to the league’s weakest division, it wouldn’t surprise too many if coach Darryl Sutter was able to steer the Flames to a third-place finish in a Pacific Division sure to be led by Vegas and Edmonton. Granted, the Vancouver Canucks, the rebuilding Los Angeles Kings and the upstart Seattle Kraken may have something to say about that. Despite losing Mark Giordano in the expansion draft and being unable to replace him, the Flames’ goal remains the same as it has been the bulk of the last three decades — squeak into the playoffs and hope for an upset. To do that the team will have to rely on a much more tenacious, st
