Mark Giordano had an assist in a 6-3 loss to Anaheim on Wednesday.
Giordano has only been held off the scoresheet in one of his last four games. He has 11 goals and 40 points in 47 contests in 2014-15. His career-high is 47 points, so the fact that he's already reached the 40-point mark is obviously big. That being said, he shouldn't slow down significantly unless he gets hurt. Jan 22 - 8:46 AM

Mark Giordano scored a goal in Calgary's 4-1 win over Arizona on Thursday night.

The Captain's goal was a bit soft, but it sure very timely. His goal, a floater of a wrister past Mike Smith, made it 3-1 with 4:02 left in the game. Giordano, who finished with three blocks and five hits as well, now has 11 goals and 37 points, ranking second on the team in both and among defensemen league-wide.

Mark Giordano thinks the Flames' next four road games are "very important."

The Flames are two points shy of a playoff spot and ideally they'd like to close that gap before the All-Star break. All four of their upcoming road games are within their division, so that gives them some additional importance. The Flames will kick off that stretch on Thursday against Arizona.

Mark Giordano has been named to the NHL All-Star game.

The defenseman has 10 goals and 36 points in 43 games and certainly deserves to be at the game. He is in a slump of late with only one point in his last six games but he has been one of the best stories of the season as he has led the Flames into playoff contention when most pundits thought that Calgary would be a bottom dweller.

Mark Giordano scored Calgary's loan goal in their 2-1 loss to Dallas on Friday night.

The Flames have now lost seven straight games, but they still trail LA and Vancouver in the Pacific by only two points. Gio's goal was a fluky, fluttering shot through traffic to beat Kari Lehtonen, but it was good enough for his league-leading among defensemen ninth goal and 32nd point of the season.

Mark Giordano leads the National Hockey League in points on the road this season with 18.

The defenseman has 30 points in 31 games this season including eight goals, to lead all blueliners but he certainly cannot be accused of doing it all at home as the 31-year-old has been tops on the road. He is a must start in all formats of fantasy hockey.

Mark Giordano is going to give wearing a visor another shot.

Giordano got clipped by a player's stick during Saturday's game and needed several stitches close to his left eyelid. Coming that close to getting an eye injury has encouraged him to reconsider his policy when it comes to visors. "I'd definitely prefer not using one, but I'll try it again and see how it goes this time," Giordano said. "I'll try it again because it was pretty close to being a bad eye injury, and I don’t want to, obviously, put myself at risk if I don't have to. So I'll try to get used to it over the next few weeks. Hopefully, this time, I can keep it on for good."

Mark Giordano has been getting more successful when it comes to finding the net with his shots.

Giordano reached the net with 39.2% of his shot attempts in the shortened 2013 campaign, but that went up to 44.7% in 2013-14 and it stands at 47.9% in 2014-15. That's part of the reason why he's excelled this season with six goals and 21 points in 19 games. "In past years, where I'd come down the wing and try and score from the outside and make a perfect shot . . . trying to hit it perfectly," Giordano said. "I realize now that there's a lower probability that you're going to score, so I try and put it off the goalie's pads instead or try and put it somewhere around the net to create a rebound or something."
