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 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.

Deryk Engelland skated as a forward in Friday's overtime loss to Edmonton.

During his 9:44 of ice time, he registered four hits and a minus-1 rating. Engelland has eight points and 40 penalty minutes in 34 games this season.

Deryk Engelland is eligible to return after serving his five-game suspension.

He was banned for a high hit on Detroit's Justin Abdelkader back on Dec. 14. Engelland will probably be back in Pittsburgh's lineup on Friday night against Carolina.

Deryk Engelland has been handed a five-game suspension by the NHL.

Because Engelland has already served the first contest of that while waiting for his hearing date, he will be eligible to return on Dec. 27. He is being punished for his high hit on Detroit's Justin Abdelkader. Engelland has five points and 38 penalty minutes in 27 games this season.

Deryk Engelland will have an in-person hearing Wednesday for his hit to the head of Red Wings forward Justin Abdelkader.

The Penguins defenseman landed a shoulder to the chin of the Red Wings forward, who left with assistance immediately after taking the hit. Engelland received a match penalty and a 10-minute misconduct for the illegal hit to the head. An in-person hearing means Engelland could be facing a suspension of at least six games.

Deryk Engelland will play on the fourth line on Friday.

Engelland has gotten a fair amount of ice time as a forward lately. With Kris Letang returning from a knee injury on Friday, the Penguins have a bit of extra incentive to stick Engelland on the fourth line. If Letang needs to miss a shift or more for whatever reason, then Engelland can switch over to defense.
