There are other goalie prospects worth giving net time to He was often heralded as the goaltender of the future by both fans, media and I’m sure even the team. However, the time has come for the Flames organization to move on from Jon Gillies. The former 3rd round pick from 2012 saw his numbers decrease last year in Stockton, albeit on a weaker team than in prior years. While he did end the season on a strong note, the progression that had been hoped for still wasn’t there. The Flames clearly wanted Gillies to bet on himself during the summer of 2018 by offering to make the second year of his contract into a one-way deal, meaning he’s getting paid the same cap hit at the NHL or AHL level. Perhaps the Flames had bee

Nazem Kadri reveals why he nixed trade between Flames, Maple Leafs

Date: 2019-07-11

Nazem Kadri is a former Toronto Maple Leaf, a current member of the Colorado Avalanche and a could-have-been Calgary Flame. On July 1, the Maple Leafs traded the 28-year-old centre, along with defenceman Calle Rosen and Toronto’s 2020 third-round pick to the Colorado Avalanche in exchange for defenceman Tyson Barrie, centre Alexander Kerfoot and a 2020 sixth-round draft pick. Colorado is also retaining 50 per cent of Barrie’s $5.5 million cap hit. The trade to Colorado came after Kadri had exercised the 10-team, no-trade clause in his contract in order to block a potential deal that would have sent him to Calgary. Colorado was not one of the team’s on Kadri’s list.

VANCOUVER – You may not want Micheal Ferland on your team, but you sure don’t want him on the other one. The Vancouver Canucks became harder to play against with Wednesday’s free-agent signing of Ferland to a four-year, $14-million contract. The cannonball winger was a Canuck killer the last time Vancouver made the playoffs when, as a National Hockey League rookie in 2015, Ferland blew up defencemen on the forecheck and scored three times in the Calgary Flames’ six-game, first-round victory. Ferland revealed then that his mother asked him not to hurt Canuck legends Daniel and Henrik Sedin, but the wrecking ball from Swan River, Man., hurt a lot

CAVENDISH, P.E.I. — Sitting in the clubhouse of Green Gables Golf Club, Jeremy McKenna is wearing a grin the size of nearby Confederation Bridge. It is here, on the 18th hole of this Stanley Thompson gem, his long and winding road towards the NHL took a significant turn Tuesday when he signed with the Calgary Flames. “It’s a dream come true to sign with my childhood team,” beamed the undrafted 20-year-old with a delightful, East Coast accent. “I’m ready to prove a lot of people wrong.” Fueled by a second-straight draft day snub and a work ethic instilled in him by his parents, former UPEI athletic standouts Mark and Sara, the nomadic McKenna is excited to pack his bags once again for another long-distance relocation. Next stop, Stockton, Calif., where last year’s leading scorer of
