Look for the Calgary Flames to give the recently acquired Brandon Bollig a bigger role than he had in Chicago.
Bollig saw fourth line action with the Blackhawks and still managed seven goals and 14 points last season while dishing out 203 hits. "The more you play, the better you feel, I think," Bollig said. "I loved my role here in Chicago, but when you change teams, you get the new look and new coaches think different things about certain roles and certain players. I'm excited to see where this takes me and, hopefully, expand my role and have a good exciting season up in Calgary. My time here in Chicago was amazing, and I'll never forget it. But it's going to be fun to help rebuild that organization." Look for Bollig to go from 10 minutes per game of action to 12-14, and get 12-15 goals and 25-30 points. Jun 29 - 7:07 AM

The Calgary Flames have acquired Brandon Bollig from the Chicago Blackhawks for the 83rd pick in this year's entry draft.

With the salary cap set at $69 million, the Hawks were forced to shed some salary. Bollig just signed a 3-year extension at $1.25 million per season and the Hawks just couldn't afford to keep him with the cap $2 million less than what it could have been. Bollig, who registered a mere 14 points in 125 NHL games with the Hawks, may be able to land a slightly bigger role in Calgary than he had on a loaded Chicago squad but he still should not be high on anyone's fantasy radar.

Brandon Bollig is eligible to get back into Chicago's lineup for Game 1 of the Western Conference Final.

He was suspended for two playoff games for boarding Minnesota defenseman Keith Ballard. Bollig was back with regular-season linemates Marcus Kruger and Ben Smith on the fourth unit at practice on Thursday. "Our role during the season, we kind of knew we were going to be out there against another team's top one or two lines," Bollig said. "So you kind of know when they come over the boards, so are we. So it's nice that he put us back together. I don’t know if that’s the role we’re going to play again. Hopefully, [it is]. But if it is, we're going to be ready for that."

Brandon Bollig was given a two game suspension by the NHL for his hit on Keith Ballard Friday.

The Chicago Blackhawks forward received only a two minute minor for boarding at the 17:13 mark of the second period but the National Hockey League deemed it worthy of a two game suspension. Bollig will sit out Games 5 and 6 and be eligible to return for Game 7 if necessary.

Coach Joel Quenneville is looking for more from Brandon Bollig.

"We're probably looking for more (from Bollig)," Quenneville said after Bollig was scratched on Sunday. "It's his play and he had a real strong regular season, for the most part. Might just need more pace, I think that's what we're looking for." It isn't clear yet if Bollig will draw back into the lineup for Game 3 on Tuesday night.

To surprise of many, the Chicago Blackhawks made winger Brandon Bollig a healthy scratch against the Minnesota Wild for Game 2 on Sunday.

Bollig played in all 82 regular season games and the Blackhawks' previous seven postseason contests despite pedestrian numbers. He's not a major fantasy impact player but it's still interesting to note.
May 4 - 3:11 PM

Brandon Bollig appeared in all 82 games for the Blackhawks this season.

However, Bollig isn't sure if he's guaranteed himself a spot in the lineup for the playoffs. "There are a lot of guys fighting for playing time right now and earning their way in," he said. "It's nice to have that competition — it keeps guys fresh and keeps guys honest. Nobody gets complacent, and everyone's kind of fighting every night. That can be very good for a team because obviously everyone wants to play every game. The competition keeps guys hungry." He finished the year with seven goals and 14 points after not recording a point in his previous 43 NHL outings.

Brandon Bollig scored Chicago's only goal Sunday night in the Blackhawks' 3-1 loss to the visiting Winnipeg Jets.

It was Bollig's sixth goal of the season. The goal was scored early -- 1:21 into the first period, but it pretty well was all Winnipeg after that, with the Jets producing all three of their goals in the third period.

Brandon Bollig scored in Chicago's 3-2 loss to the Rangers on Wednesday.

Bollig entered the 2013-14 campaign with no points in his 43 NHL games, but he's registered four goals and five assists in 46 contests this season. He also has 65 penalty minutes and 92 hits.
Jan 9 - 11:08 AM

Brandon Bollig ranks third on the Chicago Blackhawks with 86 hits.

Bollig also has eight points and 61 penalty minutes in 39 games this season. He's earned a regular spot as a bottom-six forward, but he isn't likely to climb much further in the Blackhawks depth charts. For that reason, he's only worth owning in deeper leagues that put value on hits.

Brandon Bollig was the surprise fantasy star of Chicago's 5-1 win over Winnipeg during a matinee contest on Saturday.

He recorded an impressive stat line of a game-winning goal, an assist, three shots, two penalty minutes, two hits and a plus-3 rating versus the Jets. Marcus Kruger had two assists in the match, while defenseman Nick Leddy notched a goal and a helper. Patrick Sharp, Ben Smith and Niklas Hjalmarsson had the Hawks' other tallies in the win.

Brandon Bollig registered his first career NHL assist.

It took Bollig 54 games to achieve that. He is good for about two penalty minutes a game, but as you might have guessed he will do very little offensively this season.

Brandon Bollig wanted to contribute more offensively this season and he scored his first career goal in Tuesday's win over Washington.

"It's nice to already surpass my offensive output from the last couple of seasons," Bollig said. "It's nice to get that first one and start the season off well." He had gone 43 games without finding the back of the net before getting on the board early in the first period of Chicago's 6-4 win. Bollig logged just 8:04 of ice time in the match and he co-led the team with five hits.
