Bartkowski has skated in eight games this season. He hasn't picked up a point and he owns a minus-2 rating during that stretch. Freddie Hamilton, who was on waivers earlier today, and Tanner Glass will also watch the game from the press box. None of these three players have any fantasy value.

Matt Bartkowski is battling for one of the Flames' final two defensive roster spots.

Bartkowski needs to edge out one of Rasmus Andersson and Brett Kulak. With 235 NHL games on his resume, Bartkowski has a level of experience his two competitors lack. That might ultimately be what tips the scale in his favor and allows him to make the team. However, he would likely be serving as the squad's seventh defenseman and he wouldn't be worth owning in standard fantasy leagues.

Matt Bartkowski's first goal in a Calgary uniform was a big one as it sent the game into overtime.

Bartkowski's goal tied the game with St. Louis at 2. The Flames eventually won it in overtime on Sean Monahan's goal but the move to ink Bartkowski to a two-way deal in mid-February paid dividends on Saturday. Bartkowski has little fantasy value but he had some on Saturday. He has only a goal and two points in 17 games this season.
