Mark Cundari and Bryan Lerg will be scratched against the Ducks on Saturday night.

Unfortunately neither of the near 30-year-old Cundari and Lerg have been able to make much of an impact at the AHL level, let alone the NHL level. So don't expect much out of them if they manage to crack the lineup.

The San Jose Sharks have recalled Mark Cundari from the minors.

The 25-year-old has no points in six games with the San Jose Barracuda in the AHL. He last played in the NHL for the Calgary Flames during the 2013-14 season.

Mark Cundari has inked a one-year, two-way deal with the San Jose Sharks.

Cundari's contract will come with a $600,000 cap hit if he plays in the NHL. He had 29 points and 64 penalty minutes in 50 AHL contests in 2014-15.

Mark Cundari will enter training camp with a shot of making the Flames' opening game roster.

Cundari had 23 points and 73 penalty minutes in 56 AHL games in 2013-14. The Flames only have six defensemen signed to one-way contracts, so there will be a spot available to compete for and we certainly wouldn't rule Cundari out in that battle.

Defenseman Mark Cundari has signed a one-year (two-way) contract with the Calgary Flames.

Cundari, 24, is the latest of the Flames’ restricted free agents to sign on the dotted line. The burly blue-liner did himself no favours last fall, showing up with an iffy cardio base. Coach Bob Hartley had not been impressed, ensuring Cundari’s early demotion to AHL Abbotsford. That, he promises, is going to change. Cundari has modified his training — "not crazy different," he said. Less weightlifting. More running and cycling, more muscular-endurance work. "High-intensity, high-tempo stuff." Cundari has played eight games in the NHL, all for the Flames.

Mark Cundari is set to make his season debut on Monday.

Cundari has five goals and 13 points in 22 AHL games this season. "I'm thrilled to be in the lineup," he said. "I'm just going to make the most of it. It wouldn't have been a big deal if I didn't play — I'm here for the team, I'm here to help them any way I can. Whether that means I play or I just practice hard, so be it." Look for him to serve on the team's third defensive pairing.

Defenseman Mark Cundari is back up with the Calgary Flames after showing up out of shape to training camp at the beginning of the season.

"We get mad at kids," said Calgary coach Bob Hartley. "We get to training camp — the kid’s first training camp (with the Flames) — and he’s out of shape. By Day 3, he’s sucking air." "Maybe I wasn’t in the shape I should’ve been in," says the Toronto native, listed at 5-foot-9, 195 pounds. "I’m a shorter, stockier guy, so running really isn’t my forte, especially long distance. I definitely felt that I was physically strong enough. But cardio is something I’m going to take (seriously) this off-season. I definitely learned my lesson from camp." So far, Cundari, a pending restricted free agent, has watched two games — Thursday at Tampa, Friday at Florida — from the press box. He hopes to play Monday in New Jersey.

Mark Cundari will not be part of the Calgary Flames' opening game roster.

Cundari was one of 19 players that the Flames' cut from their training camp roster in order to reduce it to 38 men. He got his first taste of NHL actions last season and ended up with a goal and two assists in four games.

Mark Cundari doesn't believe his lack of size will keep him from playing in the NHL this season.

Cundari signed a one-year, two-way contract in July. Unfortunately for him, the Flames also have seven defensemen under one-way deals, making it difficult to find a spot for Cundari. "I’m not saying I’m going to go in there and steal the show," he said. "I’m just saying I’m going to go in there and be a reliable guy, be someone they can trust to have in the lineup full time and that’s what my goal is for next year."

Mark Cundari's recently signed one-year contract is worth $600,000 at the NHL level.

Cundari's deal is two-ways and he'll make $100,000 annually in the minors. The Flames have seven defensemen signed to one-way contracts, so he'll have a tough time making the team's opening game roster.

Calgary Flames sign Mark Cundari to one-year, two-way contract.

The Flames acquired Cundari in the Jay Bouwmeester trade. He played just four games with Calgary this season, scoring one goal and three points to go along with two penalty minutes and a minus-2 rating.

Mark Cundari is looking forward to playing against his former franchise, the St. Louis Blues, on Thursday.

Calgary acquired Cundari in the Jay Bouwmeester trade. Cundari never ended up playing for the Blues, but he has a goal and three points in two games with Calgary. "Once I’m here, I can add my flavour to the team," says Cundari. "It’s not going to be the same player as Jay Bouwmeester, but it’s going to be Mark Cundari’s version of what an NHL defenceman needs to be. He’s an elite defenceman. To be the only defenceman coming back the other way, that meant something to me. It’s something I’ll never forget. Huge shoes to fill."

Mark Cundari made his NHL debut a special one as he scored once and added an assist in the Flames 4-1 win over Minnesota.

The defenseman was dealt from the Blues before the deadline as part of the Jay Bouwmeester trade and certainly showed off his skills Sunday. "Right now, there's a bunch of his buddies in Market Lane — people know what that is in Woodbridge (Ont.) — honking their horns as if Italy won the World Cup," teammate Michael Cammalleri said. "I'm sure that's what it feels like right now in Woodbridge. But hey, that's how you script it — first game. I'm sure he's all smiles. We'll see if he gets any sleep."

Although Calgary called up Mark Cundari this afternoon, he will probably be a healthy scratch tonight.

Chris Butler will is projected to play despite the fact that he's battling the flu. That being said, Cundari will still probably make his NHL debut before the season's over. "He's gonna spend a couple of good days (practising) with us and we'll see him in action," Flames coach Bob Hartley said.
