Micheal Ferland hurt his hand in a fight with Kevin Bieksa Sunday and did not return.

It was one of three fights on the night in the Calgary-Anaheim game and it was the opening bout of the game. Ferland only played 42 seconds Sunday as he doubled his penalty minute total to 10. He has four goals and 10 points this season in 28 games. Consider him day-to-day for now.

Michael Ferland has matured quite a bit entering his age-24 season, and he's been rewarded on the stat sheet for it.

Ferland posted four goals and 18 points along with 45 PIMs and a whopping 207 hits in 71 games last season, which was marred primarily by his immaturity on the ice. "Last year, you didn't know when you put Ferly (on the ice) what would happen," assistant coach Martin Gelinas said. "He's got a gift offensively but defensively, sometimes you wondered. Now, he's playing on both sides of the puck and it's nice to see." Through 22 games this season Ferland has posted four goals and nine points with five PIMs and 50 hits. He's even starting to see his defensive responsibilities improve."He's more mature, he's more focused now. I think he knows he belongs. He's more confident. His overall game has grown. He's reliable. He's producing." If Ferland can continue to grow, it won't be long until he's seen as an integral part of Calgary's youthful core.

Micheal Ferland was the only Calgary Flames player who was able to beat Henrik Lundqvist in a 4-1 loss to the New York Rangers on Saturday.

Ferland generated his third goal of the season, one short of the career-high he set last season. It's likely safe to say that fantasy owners are rooting for different Flames players to be their producers, but good for Ferland. He's not yet a fantasy factor, though he's shown some flourishes lately.

Micheal Ferland participated fully in Friday's practice.

He was banged up on Thursday against Dallas, so it was encouraging to see him skating without complications. Ferland should be fine to play on Saturday versus the Rangers.

Micheal Ferland's four game points streak came to an end Sunday.

Ferland had 18 points in 71 games last season with the Flames but was off to a much better offensive start in 2016-17 with two goals and five points in nine games before being shut down on Sunday. The 24-year-old has no fantasy value but is an important cog as a bottom-six forward on the Flames.

Coach Glen Gulutzan loves the way Micheal Ferland plays.

Gulutzan was an associate coach in Vancouver during the 2015 playoffs and was impressed with the energy and grit of Ferland and it has carried over to this season as he is now Ferland's head coach in Calgary. Oh, he was so effective," Gulutzan said about Ferland's performance in 2015. "He was such an energy guy in that series. I think he had a huge impact on the series. He was physical. Our ‘D’ were aware when he was out there and he forced us to make plays. He was one of the two or three guys that were impactful on the series. To me, he was a guy that rose up and put his team in a real good spot. His level rose to the occasion." While Ferland won't light up the scoresheet, he is an effective player for Calgary. Don't draft him at this time.

Michael Ferland will be scratched against the Kings on Tuesday night.

Ferland may not win any scoring titles, he has just 11 points 47 games thus far, but he does offer some physical value. He's posted 34 PIMs and 145 hits, which can prove to be quite helpful in the right pool.

Micheal Ferland (upper body) has been officially activated off of the injured reserve list.

The Flames received non-roster status for the suspended Dennis Wideman, so they didn't need to make any additional corresponding moves. Ferland was already expected to return on Wednesday, so his activation doesn't come as a surprise.

Michael Ferland has landed on IR, paving the way for Lance Bouma to return.

Ferland is now ineligible to return until after the All-Star break, but that's not as much of a concern when weighed against the player's health. Through 37 games this season Ferland has posted eight points and 112 hits with just 12 PIMs.

Micheal Ferland is doubtful for Sunday's game in Carolina with an upper body injury.

The forward did not practice on Saturday and likely will have the results of his injury available on Monday. Ferland has been playing on the top line of late so he will be needed to be taken out of many fantasy lineups. He was pointless in his last four games even playing alongside Johnny Gaudreau and Sean Monahan and has two goals and eight points in 37 games this season.
