Mark Giordano ranks second in the NHL with 35 blocks in 12 games.

That's a staggering pace, but Giordano has been a major shot blocker in recent years. Dating back to 2015-16 he ranks third in the league with 412 blocks in 175 contests, behind just Francois Beauchemin (434 blocks) and Kris Russell (450 blocks). "The first three or four games, it seemed like Gio (Flames captain Mark Giordano) had eight or nine blocks in every game," goalie Mike Smith said. "I was like, ‘Dude, you’re going to take my job soon if you keep doing that.'" If your league values blocks then Giordano certainly has some added value and it likely has helped during a somewhat mild start to the season offensively for him given his goal and four points in 12 contests.

Mark Giordano scored a goal in a 5-2 win over the Vancouver Canucks on Saturday night.

Giordano's goal came shorthanded after he took a feed in his skates from Dougie Hamilton and fired the puck passed Markstrom. The goal marked the 100th of Giordano's career. Not bad for an undrafted free-agent signed by the Flames in 2004. Giordano is up to three points in six games to start the year and should be owned in all formats.

Mark Giordano has won ESPN's Muhammad Ali Sports Humanitarian Award.

The other nominees were Arizona Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald, golfer Ernie Els, and the New York Mets' Curtis Granderson. "I am so incredibly honoured to receive this award," Giordano said. "To be mentioned in the same sentence as Muhammad Ali is something I could never imagine. Mr. Ali was more than just an athlete. He was a global icon that led numerous humanitarian efforts to better the lives of thousands around the world. I would like to thank the Ali family and ESPN along with congratulating all nominees for their community efforts." The award will provide him with a $100,000 grant for Team Giordano, which children across four high-need schools in Calgary. Since 2014 Team Giordano has donated $300,000 in funding, which has helped 1,900 kids. He also was given the NHL Foundation Player Award in 2016.

Mark Giordano has been nominated for the Muhammad Ali Sports Humanitarian Award.

The award recognizes North America athletes from a wide range of leagues, including the NHL, NBA, MLB, NFL, and PGA Tour to name a handful. The other candidates are golfer Ernie Els, the Arizona Cardinals' Larry Fitzgerald, and the New York Mets' Curtis Granderson. "At the end of the day, you don’t get involved in charity work to be recognized and win awards," Giordano said. "But it’s pretty cool when you can say you’ve put work and time into a foundation and it’s worked out and really made an impact on someone." Among his efforts are Team Giordano, which has donated $300,000 in funding to Calgary schools since its creation in 2014. He's also worked with Habitat for Humanity and has supported the You Can Play program.

Mark Giordano saw a silver lining in the Flames' 3-2 loss to Anaheim in Game 1.

"We’re frustrated and our discipline tonight hurt us, but we’re right there," said Giordano. "We can play with these guys, we know we can. Certain moments in the game, I thought we had good looks to go up by two. We didn’t score and then they get a break and then they come down and score. We talked about it — they have players who, shift to shift, they can change the game because they’re so skilled and they can make plays, make things happen. You saw that tonight." Anaheim the heavy favorite in this series and obviously that remains the case after the Ducks took Game 1. However, as Giordano said, the Flames kept things close and they have a serious shot of pulling off an upset in this series.

Mark Giordano's next goal will be significant.

It will be his 100th in a Flames' uniform. When he scores it, he will become only the fourth Calgary defenseman in team history to notch 100 goals. The others: Al MacInnis (213), Gary Suter (128) and Paul Reinhart (100). It will be a nice accomplishment for Giordano.

Mark Giordano picked up a goal and two assists in a 3-1 win over the Dallas Stars on Friday night.

While the Stars decided if they should touch the puck to half play due to a high stick, Giordano decided to wire in his 11th of the year for the Flames. He also picked up assists on goals scored by Michael Frolik and Matthew Tkachuk. Giordano's offensive numbers have dipped this season (33 points in 71 games) but he's still a valuable fantasy asset because of his plus-21 rating and 52 penalty minutes. The Flames are now 12-1-1 in their last 14 games played.
