The Calgary Flames have signed Joni Ortio to a two-year contract.

Ortio had a 2.51 GAA and .891 save percentage in nine games last season. He's expected to start the season in the minors after the Flames inked Jonas Hiller to a two-year deal.

Expect to see goaltender Joni Ortio spend the entire 2014-15 season in the minors.

This, of course is dependent on injuries, but the Flames want to pick up another goalie during free agency to go with Karri Ramo and give Ortio time to develop in the minors. Ortio saw some NHL action in 2013-14 as the Flames had plenty of injuries between the pipes and he played well with a 4-4-0 record to go with a 2.16 GAA and a .906 save percentage.

Joni Ortio has been sent down to the minors.

Ortio was called up on an emergency basis, so now that Karri Ramo is ready to return from his injury, they needed to demote him. Ortio kicked out just nine of 13 shots against Nashville on Friday before being sent down.
Mar 22 - 9:26 AM

Joni Ortio turned aside 13 of 14 shots in Calgary's 3-1 win over Buffalo Tuesday night.

Mar 19 - 4:44 AM

Joni Ortio will be between the pipes for Calgary Tuesday.

Not surprising. He has seen the vast majority of the Flames' matches with Karri Ramo hurt and Reto Berra now playing in Colorado.
Mar 17 - 3:18 PM

Joni Ortio wasn't sharp in net, making only 22 saves in the Flames' 3-2 loss to the Coyotes on Saturday night.

While Ortio has only given up more than two goals three times in his seven starts, the 22-year-old has not been taxed too much in terms of shot volume; thus he's only had three plus-.900 save percentage games. Ortio has a 2.32 goals-against average and .904 save percentage this season. He should continue to get a long look for as long as Karri Ramo is out.
Mar 16 - 12:44 AM

Joni Ortio blocked 20 of 22 shots in Calgary's 7-2 win over Anaheim Wednesday evening.

Ortio started for the Flames once again and he played a solid game. He has a 2.20 goals-against average and .907 save percentage in six games this season. As long as Karri Ramo is hurt, Calgary is expected to continue to lean on Ortio.
Mar 13 - 4:07 AM

Joni Ortio will start for Calgary on Wednesday.

Ortio has been solid since he was called up, posting a 2.24 GAA and .907 save percentage in five contests. As long as Karri Ramo is hurt, Calgary is expected to continue to lean on Ortio.
Mar 12 - 2:33 PM

Joni Ortio allowed three goals on 23 shots in Calgary's 3-2 loss to Los Angeles Monday night.

Ortio has now started five straight games for the Flames and his record now stands in 2-3-0. He also has a 2.24 goals-against average and .907 save percentage. Ortio is the number one goalie in Calgary, because Karri Ramo is still out with a knee injury.
Mar 11 - 4:27 AM

Joni Ortio is expected to get the start on Monday when Calgary hosts the Los Angeles Kings.

Ortio will be backed up by Joey MacDonald as Karri Ramo is still out with a knee injury. He is 2-2 this season since his recall, with a 2.03 GAA and a .916 save percentage.
Mar 10 - 7:14 AM

Joni Ortio allowed two goals on 14 shot in the Flames' 2-1 loss to the Canucks on Saturday night.

If Ortio wants to gain a foothold on the goaltending job with Karri Ramo out with an injury, this isn't the way to do it. Ortio wasn't tested much in this game, giving up one in the second and one in the third. He is a 2.03 goals-against average and .916 save percentage in four games played with the Flames.
Mar 9 - 12:44 AM

Joni Ortio blocked 23 of 26 shots in Calgary's 4-3 win over the New York Islanders Friday night.

Ortio won his second straight start and he played well again. He is the number one goalie in Calgary at the moment as Karri Ramo is still recovering from injury. We would ride Ortio until he cools off.
Mar 8 - 2:11 AM

Joni Ortio turned aside 30 of 31 shots in Calgary's 4-1 win over Ottawa Wednesday night.

It was Ortio's second game and first win in the NHL. He played a fantastic game and got the first star of the game. The Flames traded Reto Berra to Colorado so it seems like Ortio is now the number one goalie in Calgary, because Karri Ramo is still injured.
Mar 6 - 3:21 AM

Joni Ortio will play between the pipes on Wednesday.

Ortio made his NHL debut on Feb. 27 and stopped 22 of 24 shots in a 2-0 loss. He has a 2.22 GAA and .926 save percentage in 28 AHL games this season.
