Paul Byron picked up a five minute major for boarding and a game misconduct for his hit on Daniel Sedin Sunday.
Byron could be hearing from the NHL for the hit as this is frowned upon and rightly so. "I didn't think it was a dirty hit. That wasn't my intention at all. I hope he's OK," Byron said. Stay tuned. Apr 14 - 6:51 AM

Paul Byron skipped Wednesday's game to be with his wife for the birth of their child.

Congratulations to Byron and his growing family. It's not clear yet if Byron will be available for Friday's game, but we think he probably will end up playing.

Paul Byron is finding he has more drive as he gets older.

"I think it's just come with maturity," Byron, 24, said. "Every day in practice, I try to be the best player on the ice. Maybe in the past with some of the guys like (Jarome) Iginla and those older guys, I was just trying to get by in practice. Maybe kind of hide. Now, I want to be first in every drill. I want to improve. I want to get better. I want to show I belong in this league." It's helped because Byron has finally established himself as a regular in the league, to the point where the Flames advised him just before the Olympic break to get a place in Calgary. He has five goals and 17 points in 38 games with the Flames this season.

Paul Byron scored his second goal of the season on Saturday.

The goal gives Byron six points in 11 games, not bad production from an energy player. He is worth looking at in very deep pools.

Paul Byron had a goal and an assist in the Flames 2-1 win Saturday.

That gives the bottom-six energy player four points in his last two games and five points in seven NHL games this season. The 24-year-old saw 14:20 minutes of action and has provided a nice boost to the Flames since his recall from the minors. He is worth owning in deep leagues if he can maintain this pace but do not expect him to do so.

Paul Byron has two assists in Calgary's 2-1 win on Thursday.

Paul Byron played only 5:39 minutes on Saturday but set up the Flames first goal.

Byron managed to pass the puck to Blair Jones who had the empty net and easily scored a shorthanded goal that gave the Flames a 1-0 lead. Byron had five goals and 18 points in 22 AHL games before his recall. He has no fantasy value in traditional pools.

The Calgary Flames are looking for a productive season from center Paul Byron.

The speedy 24-year-old started last season playing on a line with Jarome Iginla and Curtis Glencross when he was slashed and broke his left hand — on his fourth shift in. He had surgery and had pins put in but they weren’t put in properly and the procedure needed to be redone. "And while that happened, they put one of the pins through a tendon," Byron said. "So, after everything was done correctly, it was a little bit of a longer process because of all the swelling in my hand." When the Flames started spiralling toward a fourth consecutive season without playoffs, trades began happening, changes were visible, and — most notably for Byron — opportunities were to be had. In the end, the Ottawa native collected 15 points in 38 games for Abbotsford of the AHL and was summoned for three of Calgary's final four games of the season and had an assist. ""But I’m in camp now and I’m going to seize this opportunity," Byron said.

The small forward received a deal that's worth $643,500 at the NHL level and $125K in the AHL. He has eight points in 34 career games (26 with Calgary, eight with Buffalo).
