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.

Michael Ferland had a shot on goal and a couple of hits in his NHL debut on Friday.

The Flames fifth round pick in the 2010 Draft was fishing in upstate New York when he got the call that he was being recalled. Well, it took about 10 calls as he missed most of them while out on the lake. Nevertheless, Ferland, who had four goals and nine points in nine AHL games with Adirondack, finally picked up and was on his way to Calgary to make his first appearance in the National Hockey League.

Michael Ferland is making a strong argument for the Flames' keeping him beyond training camp.

Ferland had two goals and some big hits in Sunday's 2-1 victory over Colorado. "What's impressive about a young player like Ferly is that for all those young kids, now we're getting closer and closer to NHL hockey," Flames head coach Bob Hartley said. "You don't want to have a separation. You need to keep up with the pace, and Ferly was a force." He had six goals and 18 points in 25 AHL games in 2013-14.
