Byron is on the injured reserve list, although because that move was likely retroactive to Feb. 16, he can be activated at any time. He is trying with the Flames on their current road trip and should be regarded as day-to-day for now.

Feb 18 - 1:05 PM

Paul Byron is having great difficulty scoring on breakaways this season.

Byron has scored only once despite numerous opportunities. "This has never happened to me in my life before. Normally, I used to be pretty good on breakaways, and for whatever reason, this year, they just aren’t going in," Byron said. "The key is just try to take the positive out of it — that I’m getting (breakaways) — and try not to mentally take myself down. Because if you think you’re not going to score, you’re not. I think it’s just a matter of time before one of them finally goes in." Byron has five goals and 14 points this season in 49 games so his fantasy value is negligible.
