Flames prospect Michael Ferland has been found not guilty of assault and aggravated assault following an incident on July 29, 2012.

Michael Ferland is still looking to break camp with the Calgary Flames.

The right winger will play Monday on a line with Mikael Backlund and Corban Knight as the Flames are looking at the former fifth round pick in 2010 as their power forward of the future. A comparison has been made that he is similar to the Canucks Zack Kassian and GM Jay Feaster actually sent Ferland a compilation of Kassian's good reviews with the Canucks. "I'm sure before the game starts, I'll be nervous," Ferland said. "You usually get nervous before these kind of games. I think I'll have a few butterflies.. Obviously, there's only a few more games to show the coaching staff why you should be here. I just want to go into (Monday) with confidence." Ferland struggled last season in pro hockey before the Flames sent him back to junior hockey as an overaged junior so look for Ferland to spend the season in the AHL.

Former fifth round pick Michael Ferland looks to be in the Flame future plans.

While it's extremely doubtful that Ferland is on the Flames radar this season, or even next year, the truculent forward could be their power forward of the future. They are comparing him to Zack Kassian of the Canucks and GM Jay Feaster went so far as to send Ferland a compilation of Kassian's good reviews with Vancouver, according to the Calgary Sun. Ferland had his troubles last season as he struggled in the AHL and ECHL before the Flames sent him back to the WHL as an overaged junior but was dealt from Brandon to Saskatoon and saw plenty of action in the Memorial Cup which the Blades hosted. He is still a few years away from any fantasy contribution at best.

Michael Ferland could move again soon after recently rejoining the WHL Brandon Wheat Kings.

Ferland chose to return to the junior league after struggling in the AHL and ECHL. However, in the WHL, teams are only allowed to dress a maximum of three 20-year-old players per contest. With Ferland back, the Wheat Kings have one too many 20-year-old players, so they will probably end up making a trade. "I talked to (Wheat Kings’ general manager) Kelly (McCrimmon) about the trade deadline here," Ferland said. "I’m not going to be surprised if I get moved here and if I do, it’ll be a new chapter in my career and I’ll move forward."

Michael Ferland has been assigned to the WHL Brandon Wheat Kings.

Ferland struggled to make the jump to the AHL and even ECHL this season, so he'll get a bit more time at the junior level. There he'll get plenty of playing time as one of the Wheat Kings' top players. Ferland was taken by the Calgary Flames in the fifth round of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft.

After struggling with the AHL Abbotsford Heat and ECHL Utah Grizzlies, Michael Ferland is trying to re-sign with the WHL Brandon Wheat Kings.

It's an obvious setback for Ferland, who had 47 goals and 96 points in 68 WHL games last season. "It came down to trying to come back for another year of junior," Ferland. "It’s only going to get harder to crack Abbotsford’s lineup with the team they have..." The lockout has enhanced the AHL and ECHL, so Ferland might have an easier time transitioning to the minors in 2013-14. That is, of course, assuming that the lockout doesn't extend into next season.
