Michael Ferland celebrated one year of sobriety on Friday.
Ferland has been a healthy scratch for three straight games but nothing was going to ruin his special day. "I watch those guys like a mother hawk, and I was noticing problems with Ferly," coach Bob Hartley said. "He opened up, and we got him some help. For me, coaching is to win hockey games but ... lives are way more important than careers. I don’t believe that you can have a career if you don’t have a normal life. That’s what I explained to him. He broke down in my office, and I went to see Brian (Burke) and we got it going. I’m tremendously proud of Ferly. He’s a changed man. Obviously, that’s going to be a daily battle, probably for the rest of his life, but he’s doing it with great pride and, obviously, we’re all very supportive of him. I think it’s a great victory for Michael." Congratulations to Ferland who has two points in 20 NHL games in his career, on the milestone. Mar 28 - 7:36 AM

Michael Ferland, Drew Shore, and Corey Potter will each be scratched against the Minnesota Wild on Friday night.

This will be Ferland's third straight game in the stands. The 22 year old rookie Ferland has just two points in 20 games at the NHL level, and he has seven goals and 15 points over 32 games in AHL Adirondack this season. Shore meanwhile has just two points in seven games with the Flames in addition to his 12 goals and 37 points with AHL San Antonio and now Adirondack. Unfortunately, none of these three players have any fantasy value.

Calgary forward Michael Ferland and defenseman Corey Potter will remain in the press box Wednesday night versus the Dallas Stars.

Head Coach Bob Hartley will use the same lineup from Monday’s 3-2 win over Colorado, which means Ferland and Potter will sit out. Ferland will sit for a second consecutive game and has recorded zero goals and two assists with 14 penalty minutes in 20 games this season. Potter has only appeared in two games all year for the Flames and has yet to record a point. Neither player are relevant in terms of fantasy hockey.

Michael Ferland will be in the press box Monday night when the Flames host the Avalanche.

Ferland will be replaced by Josh Jooris who is returning from an undisclosed injury after missing the team’s last two games. Ferland has played in 20 games with the Flames this season picking up just two assists. He is only 22 years old and has a promising future, but is an irrelevant fantasy player for the remainder of the 2014-2015 season.

Michael Ferland will dress for the Flames Wednesday night when they host the Anaheim Ducks.

The Calgary Flames have been awfully impressed with the play of rookie Michael Ferland.

Coach Bob Hartley thought Ferland played the best game of his limited NHL career on Thursday in a win over Colorado in which he was held off the scoresheet but managed six hits including five in the opening frame. "Ferly, that was his best game – that was the best game he’s played in the NHL," coach Bob Hartley said. "And it’s only starting. There’s many more to come. Ferly delivered exactly the assignment that we had given him. I love this kid. Right now, he’s just getting in gear. He has very high expectations of himself." The fifth round pick in the 2010 Draft has been a pleasant surprise for the Flames. He has only one assist in eight NHL games this season, but the scoring should come soon as he has always scored at every level. He is not worth a fantasy chance in traditional pools this season.

Before he made it to the NHL, Michael Ferland was considering bringing his hockey career to an abrupt end.

Ferland was discouraged by his struggles while attempting to transition from the junior level to minors. "I think it was just being young and just sick of everything, thinking everyone was out to get me," Ferland said. "But going through all that adversity really made me who I am today." He's grown a lot over the last few years though and while he just has three NHL games under his belt, he has the potential to establish himself as a regular with the Flames.

Michael Ferland picked up his first NHL point on Saturday when he assisted on the power play goal by Josh Jooris.

Ferland almost quit hockey after his first professional season as he was sent to the AHL after training camp and the Abbotsford team then sent him to the ECHL after just seven games. But eventually Ferland returned and has been up with the big club all season, playing in only his third game on Saturday as he has recovered from a concussion. He is worth keeping an eye on in deep leagues as he does see some power play time.
