Sven Baertschi is excited to be joining the Vancouver Canucks' organization.
Vancouver acquired Baertschi from Calgary in exchange for a second round pick. Baertschi, 22, was the 13th overall selection in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, but he hasn't worked out as the Flames had hoped. He'll stay in the minors for now, but this is an opportunity for him to start fresh with a new organization. "I'm in their plans and they were excited that they got me," said Baertschi. "When you hear somebody say they want you to be there and want you in the organization, that's great to have. It really seems they believe in me." Mar 3 - 10:56 AM

The Vancouver Canucks have acquired Sven Baertschi from the Calgary Flames in exchange for a second round pick.

Baertschi has eight goals and 21 points in 34 AHL games in 2014-15. He also has four points in 15 games with Calgary. He was taken with the 13th overall pick in 2011 and might benefit from the change of scenery.
Mar 2 - 3:15 PM

Sven Baertschi is expected to be a healthy scratch Wednesday night against the Sharks.

Mikael Backlund is returning from an illness so Baertschi will be back in the press box for Wednesday's game. The 22-year-old Swiss born winger has played in 15 games with the Flames this year but has yet to find the back of the net and has only chipped in with four assists. Markus Granlund and newly called up Corey Potter are also expected to be healthy scratches Wednesday.

Sven Baertschi will suit up Monday night against the Winnipeg Jets.

With Mikael Backlund out due to an illness, Baertschi will get a chance to play Monday. Baertschi hasn't played in an NHL game since December 4th and has just three assists in 14 games.

Look for the Calgary Flames to keep the same lineup on Saturday that they used on Thursday.

That means that Sven Baertschi, Tyler Wotherspoon and David Wolf will remain in the press box. Just an FYI.
Jan 31 - 7:22 AM

Sven Baertschi, David Wolf, and Tyler Wotherspoon will all be healthy scratches against Buffalo on Tuesday night.

Baertschi has had trouble establishing himself in Calgary. He has just 27 points through 65 games since the 2011-12 season. He's done better with AHL Adirondack with 17 points in 28 games, however. Wolf, a 25 year old winger from Dusseldorf, Germany, has 25 points through 31 games in the AHL. So perhaps he is more worthy of your attention at this time.

Sven Baertschi has been called up by Calgary.

He has averaged just under nine minutes of ice time per game in 14 NHL appearances this season. Baertschi has three assists and 11 shots. In 28 matches with AHL Adirondack, he has five goals and 17 points.

The Calgary Flames have sent Sven Baertschi to the minors.

Baertschi had three points in 14 games and with Mason Raymond returning, he was the odd man out.

There is a very good possibility that Sven Baertschi could be headed back to the AHL this week.

The Flames will need to make a move to accommodate the return of Mason Raymond and more and more it's looking like it will be Baertschi who was a healthy scratch on Saturday. He has three points in 14 games this season with Calgary.

Expect to see Sven Baertschi in the press box on Saturday when the Flames take on the San Jose Sharks.

Baertschi has only three assists an a minus-four rating in 14 games. The former first round pick has struggled at the NHL level in his last couple of seasons and this year has been no different. He is worth a shot in keeper leagues as he has offensive ability but not in one-year pools as he continues to try to find himself.

Sven Baertschi could be the odd man out on Saturday when the Flames are in Arizona to take on the Coyotes.

Sven Baertschi was called up from the minors on Sunday.

Baertschi played 10:56 minutes with a couple of shots on goal as the Flames have a myriad of injuries up front, necessitating his recall. "It’s another chance for me to prove myself and show what I can do," Baertschi said. "The season hasn’t been great, but it can turn around quick ... It started coming down there (in Adirondack). I really started playing well. I’m happy I got rewarded for it." Baertschi had only three assists in 10 games with Adirondack with a minus-eight rating but had two assists Saturday after which he was recalled. He had 11 points in 26 games with the Flames last season after being selected 13th overall in the 2011 Draft.
