Deryk Engelland had a shift that lasted 3:22 minutes on Saturday.
To put that in perspective, Engelland's shift was 4.5 times longer than the league's average. In fact, Engelland was out there for so long that he ended up facing 18 of Vancouver's 20 players over the course of that shift. It wasn't by design as Engelland got caught out there for multiple icings against Calgary. Remarkably, it didn't end with Vancouver scoring. "There was definitely desperation," Engelland said. "You don't want to get scored on on any shift, and when you’'re out there that long, you are fatigued, and they are trying to take advantage of it." Apr 28 - 10:58 AM

The NHL has rescinded Deryk Engelland's instigator penalty from Game 2.

This is a huge break for the Flames as Engelland may have been suspended for his misdeeds. The Flames are hurting on the blueline and had Engelland been forced to sit out a game, they would have gone with the inexperienced Tyler Wotherspoon or veteran Corey Potter whom they lack confidence in at this time.

The Calgary Flames are hoping that defenseman Deryk Engelland gets his Game 2 instigator nullified so he can play against the Vancouver Canucks in Game 3 on Sunday.

The 33-year-old was credited with 42 PIM (as of the latest updates) on Saturday, likely justifying his spot in just about any fantasy-related lineup. It's difficult to imagine anyone in Game 3 approaching that havoc, especially since the league will have its eyes fixed to any shenanigans.

Calgary's 4-1 series tying defeat by Vancouver ending with quite the bang, which was headlined by Deryk Engelland's 42 PIMs with just 77 seconds to go in the game.

Engelland, who recorded three hits and four blocks across 20:19 of work, unleashed his fury on everyone he could get his hands on. Let's go through it together: two counts of fights with Derek Dorsett, and three separate game misconduct penalties on top of an instigator minor brings us to a whopping 42 PIMs. There's word that Engelland could face a suspension for his surplus of misconducts, but Kris Russell is reportedly getting away with his Dustin Byfuglien-style cross-check, so Engelland might get off with a stern Vince McMahon-like warning instead. Stay tuned!

Deryk Engelland scored twice for the Flames in a 4-3 shootout loss to Dallas on Wednesday.

Engelland was the unlikely scorer for the Flames as they earned a valuable point in the loss. The goals were Engelland's first two of the season. Johnny Gaudreau scored his 21st in the loss while Sean Monahan, Mason Raymond and Lance Bouma all picked up helpers.

Deryk Engelland will play his first game against his former team the Pittsburgh Penguins on Friday night.

The former 194th overall pick in the 2000 Entry Draft spent the first five years of his NHL career with the Penguins before signing a three-year $8.75M contract over the summer. "I’m sure it will be a little more anxious once we get to the rink. I’m looking forward to it. I had a lot of good years here so to go back and play against them should be a lot of fun."

Deryk Engelland (illness) returned to action on Saturday.

Engelland has only two assists in 20 games but the solid defensive defenseman had two hits and two blocked shots Saturday. He has some value if you play those categories but otherwise leave him on the waiver wire.

Deryk Engelland didn't play on Wednesday because he was feeling sick.

It sounds like Engelland's illness wasn't serious, so he'll probably be fine to play on Saturday. He has two assists in 19 games in 2014-15.

Deryk Engelland spent a lot of years in the minors before finally striking it rich this season.

Engelland made his NHL debut five years ago at age 27 when a lot of players would have given up and his play last season got him a three-year/$8.75 million contract with the Flames. The tough blueliner will be a leader for the Flames but his offensive fantasy value will not be worthy of a roster spot in your lineup.

Deryk Engelland may face some competition for Calgary's last defense spot.

The position will probably be his after he signed a three-year deal worth just over $2.9 million per season in the summer. "They brought in a lot of good players and there are a lot of young kids coming up," said Engelland. "It's not a time you can take lightly. You have to compete and take the spots, even if you know a spot is open, you still want to push the guys ahead of you and try to move up." Calgary also invited Raphael Diaz and Sheldon Brookbank to training camp on tryouts.

Deryk Engelland has reached a three-year agreement with the Calgary Flames.

According to TSN's Bob McKenzie, the contract is worth $2.9 million per season. Engelland is a big, tough player who can play forward or defense. He recorded 12 points and 58 penalty minutes in 56 games last season.

Agent Allain Roy said there hasn't been any contract discussions between Deryk Engelland and the Pittsburgh Penguins.

He's a physically imposing figure on the blueline and he can line up as a forward as well, so he may be able to find a job elsewhere if he's permitted to test the free agent waters.
