The Calgary Flames have recalled defenseman Christopher Breen from the minors.

The Flames sent Shane O'Brien to the minors and want to see what the mammoth Breen can do over the last 30 games of the season. "Once Kris Russell got healthy and once we got Chris Breen playing big minutes in Abby (the Flames AHL affiliate in Abbotsford BC), our plan was to go with the younger kids," president of hockey operations and acting GM Brian Burke said. "Players (O'Brien's) age are not likely going to be here when we have this thing where we want it. We have to find out about Chris Breen. Can he play? Can he not play? He hasn't been given a fair opportunity, mainly because of injury. We're going to find out now." Breen had no points in five games earlier this season with Calgary. He has no fantasy value at this time.

Christopher Breen will play in Monday's contest.

Breen has been a healthy scratch since Nov. 29, but he'll get another shot with Dennis Wideman and Kris Russell injured. As you would expect from someone who plays so rarely, Breen has no fantasy value.

Christopher Breen (abdomen) practiced with the Flames on Sunday for the first time since his injury in late October.

Breen was paired with Shane O'Brien in practice. He has played twice this season for the Flames since he was recalled on October 21 with no points and one fight. You should still consider him day-to-day for now.

Christopher Breen made his NHL debut on Tuesday.

The Flames needed another defenseman because Mark Giordano was dealing with a lower-body injury. Breen blocked a shot and logged just 7:02 minutes in Calgary's 4-2 loss to Phoenix. Breen doesn't have much offensive upside and consequently isn't likely to ever have much fantasy value in standard leagues.

The Calgary Flames have recalled defenseman Christopher Breen from Abbotsford of the AHL.

The Flames sent him down on a conditioning loan 10 days ago. The defensive defenseman had one assist in four games this season. He will start off as an extra defenseman so do not expect to see him in the lineup barring injury soon.

Christopher Breen has been taking more advantage of his massive 6-foot-7, 230-pound frame lately.

"I've always had the size, but I just think I haven't always realized how to use it, and I'm still kind of trying to figure it out every game. It's a work in progress still," Breen said. "I think I'm just a little more confident in my body. It's a big frame, so strength and speed and stuff are catching up with me every year. I'm just really starting to get confident with what I can do." Abbotsford Heat coach Troy Ward praised Breen for both defending his space as a blueliner and for sticking up for his teammates. Breen has already dropped the gloves four times in 26 AHL games this season.
