With the All-Star break over, it looks like Calgary won't recall Joni Ortio.

Although Ortio had a 1.98 GAA and .931 save percentage in five contests, the Flames want to put their faith in Jonas Hiller and Karri Ramo. To carry three goaltenders during this critical stretch of the season might disrupt their top-two netminders rhythm. "We've said it right from the start of training camp. We feel those two guys can carry the load and win some games for us," Flames head coach Bob Hartley said.

Joni Ortio's short-term future with the Calgary Flames is unclear.

Ortio has been sent to the minors for the duration of the NHL All-Star break, but he might be called up again when it's over. He has an impressive 1.98 GAA and .931 save percentage in five contests, but he's coming off of a rough outing against Anaheim. That poor start might be enough to keep him off the roster for now given that the Flames' top two goaltenders are now healthy.

Joni Ortio has been assigned to AHL Adirondack.

Ortio didn't have a strong performance in his last game before the All-Star break when he was pulled against Anaheim. However, he went into that contest on a four-game win streak. Ortio owns a .931 save percentage and a 1.98 goals-against average in five appearances with Calgary. It will be interesting to see if he'll be called back up after the break because Karri Ramo is back from injury.

Joni Ortio got pulled in the second period after allowing four goals on 11 shots to the Ducks on Wednesday night.

He allowed three first period goals but did return for the second period where he faced just three shots. He earned this start and was given the benefit of the doubt after a rough first period. Jonas Hiller replaced him between the pipes for the Flames. The rookie had won four straight starts before this tough outing with the top team in the league in Anaheim. It will be interesting to see where the Flames for their first goalie start when the All-Star break is over.

Joni Ortio will start again on Wednesday.

It will be his fifth straight game between the pipes. He's pretty much forced head coach Bob Hartley's hand by posting a 1.23 GAA and .958 save percentage in his last four contests. "He wants to run. He wants to play and let's face it, this is — so far in his NHL career — the best opportunity he's getting," Hartley said. "That's how careers start. Sometimes it doesn't start from having a good training camp and you earn an easy jersey. He's fighting. We're in the business of winning games, and I've said it all along, we have two goalies we felt could win us some games. Well, you can add one more to our equation. Right now, we have three goalies that can win us some games."

Goaltender Joni Ortio made 33 saves in regulation and overtime before he and the Calgary Flames squeezed past the Stanley Cup champion Kings 2-1 in Los Angeles Monday night.

Ortio has been sensational for the Flames since being promoted recently. He was called up after Karri Ramo suffered an upper-body injury. Ortio has surprised opponents, recording four victories in four starts, none of which was more impressive than Monday's OT win over the Kings. Ortio kept the Flames in the game with one dazzling stop after another. The Kings had taken a 1-0 lead midway through the third period before the Flames tied the game about three minutes later, setting up overtime. Ortio has emerged out of the proverbial nowhere to become quite the story, with a goals-against average of 1.23 and a save percentage of .958.
Jan 20 - 1:29 AM

Joni Ortio is projected to start on Monday against Los Angeles.

Ortio has a 1.33 GAA and .953 save percentage in three victories this season. He was called up because Karri Ramo is dealing with an upper-body injury, but if Ortio keeps playing like this, it will be tough to return him to the minors.

Joni Ortio gave up three goals in the Flames’ 4-3 overtime win against the Sharks on Saturday night.

Ortio has been in net for the Flames’ last three games, all of which were wins. This 19-save effort was by far his worst outing of the three he’s made this season. He has a 1.33 goals-against average and .953 save percentage.

Joni Ortio will be in goal for Calgary again on Saturday.

He will face the San Jose Sharks in his third straight appearance. Ortio has won his previous two outings, while permitting one goal on 64 shots.

Joni Ortio made 27 saves in Calgary's 4-1 win over Arizona on Thursday night.

Aside from the beautiful individual effort and goal by Mikkel Boedker, Ortio stood tall for his sixth career victory. Ortio has now stopped 63 of the 64 combined shots Vancouver and Arizona sent his way during his return to the NHL.
Jan 16 - 12:04 AM

Joni Ortio will be between the pipes against Arizona on Thursday.

Ortio shut out the Vancouver Canucks in his only start this season. The Flames have said that they may keep Ortio around after Karri Ramo returns from injury, but that doesn't seem likely. He has little fantasy value for the rest of the season.
Jan 15 - 7:22 PM

Joni Ortio might be able to stick with the Flames even after Karri Ramo (upper body) returns.

Flames coach Bob Hartley said it would ultimately come down to Ortio's performance. "I, personally, hate to carry three goalies," Hartley added. "No one likes to have three goalies around. That's a pain. It's not healthy (to have three goalies sharing the nets), but that's our situation right now." This is coming after Ortio earned a 36-save shutout on Saturday against the Vancouver Canucks.

Jan 11 - 1:06 AM

After a wild 6-5 loss to Florida on Friday night, Joni Ortio is expected to start against Vancouver on Saturday night.

The Flames come in sitting just two points outside of the Wild Card race with Winnipeg and LA battling each other tonight.
