Sven Baertschi will get one last chance to make the Calgary Flames out of training camp on Saturday.

Baertschi has scored once in five pre-season games thus far and has been outplayed by rookies Johnny Gaudreau and Josh Jooris but will get one final chance to impress on Saturday in the Flames final game before the start of the regular season. "The battle is on, and Sven is part of that battle," head coach Bob Hartley said. "I really like that he's on the puck. He's going to the net. He's making things happen. I think that he could and he should have maybe three, four goals already. It’s bouncing pucks or good saves by goalies, but the chances are there, and that's always where I feel the most positive." Baertschi burst onto the scene as a 19-year-old, scoring three goals in a five game emergency recall but the 13th overall pick in the 2011 Draft has been unable to duplicate those results ever since.

Sven Baertschi has added nine pounds over the summer.

That brings the 5-foot-10 forward up to 192 pounds. "Other summers, it was hard for me to gain any weight," said Baertschi. "I was working hard all summer, but it was hard to gain weight. This summer, and maybe it had something to do with working with Ryan, it was easier to get stronger and get more muscular." He was referring to Ryan van Asten, who is the Flames' new strength and conditioning coach. Baertschi returned to Calgary more than a month ago so that the two could begin training together. This will be an important season for Baertschi as he tries to establish himself as a regular member of the Flames' roster after playing in 51 games over the last three campaigns.

Sven Baertschi suffered a fractured rib during the third period of Switzerland's loss to Russia at an IIHF World Hockey Championship game on Friday.

He's expected to be sidelined for several weeks, so he'll miss the remainder of the tournament. Baertschi recorded 13 goals and 29 points in 41 games for AHL Abbotsford this past season. He also added 11 points in 26 appearances with Calgary.

Sven Baertschi reportedly sustained an upper-body injury while playing in the 2014 World Championship.

The severity of the injury isn't known yet. Baertschi has a shot of earning a permanent spot with the Calgary Flames in 2013-14.

Calgary prospect Sven Baertschi will play for Switzerland at the upcoming World Hockey Championships in Belarus.

Baertschi was not named to the Swiss side for the 2014 Olympics. Baertschi had two goals and 11 points in 26 NHL games this season before he was sent to the minors where he managed 29 points in 41 games. The Flames farm team in Abbotsford was knocked out of the playoffs in four games as Baertschi managed only one assist. His future is bright but he needs to show that he is still an offensive threat and capable of being a top six forward as the Flames drafted him 13th overall in the 2011 Draft.
May 5 - 7:13 AM

Former first round pick Sven Baertschi is out of the Abbotsford lineup with an undisclosed injury.

Baertschi was sent to the minors on December 12 and after a slow start in which he had two goals and six points in 17 games, he had six goals and 11 points in his last 13. Baertschi was the Flames first pick, 13th overall in the 2011 Draft and came into the NHL with a flurry as he had three goals in five games as a 19-year-old emergency recall. He has struggled ever since as a pro but is still only 21 so he can still have a long and successful career.
Mar 10 - 7:20 AM

Sven Baertschi has struggled since being sent to the minors on December 12.

Baertschi was selected in the first round, 13th overall in 2011 and made a dynamic debut as a 19-year-old with three goals in five games as he was an emergency recall from junior hockey. But he has struggled as a pro ever since and it's continuing in the minors this season as he has only two goals and six points in 17 games. He is only 21 so the organization should not be overly concerned just yet as he has a lot of offensive upside.

Sven Baertschi has been sent to AHL Abbotsford.

In 26 games with the Flames this season, he has two goals and nine assists. Baertschi hasn't been able to carve out a niche for himself at the NHL level yet, but he's just 21-years-old and could still have a bright future ahead of him.

Sven Baertschi had an assist in Calgary's 2-1 loss to Boston.

Baertschi has two goals and 11 points in 26 games this season. He's got enough offensive upside to make him worth holding onto in some keeper leagues, but we can't recommend him for single season fantasy owners at this time.

Sven Baertschi was a healthy scratch on Saturday.

Baertschi has two goals and nine points in 22 games this season but coach Bob Hartley decided that the winger would be better off in the press box than the ice. Baertschi has value in keeper leagues as he is a talented young forward but we cannot recommend him at this time in one year pools.

Sven Baertschi scored his first goal in 16 games on Friday.

It was only Baertschi's second goal of the season as he had not found the back of the net since October 9. The superstitious Baertschi wore new skates in the game and joked afterwards that he would need new skates every game. Baertschi was actually breaking out of his scoring slump as he had three assists in four previous games and now has nine points in 20 games. He is worth looking at in deeper leagues as he has a lot of upside offensively.

Sven Baertschi is on a nice little hot-streak while posting four points during the Flames' last five contests.

Calgary president Brian Burke called out Baertschi earlier this season, which as you can imagine hasn't sat well with him. It appears that things are settling down as Baertschi is riding a nice little hot-streak as he potted his second goal of the season on Friday night. The surprising thing is that he's doing it in limited ice-time as he's garnering less than 16 minutes per game while playing mostly on a line alongside Joe Colborne and David Jones. If Baertschi can ever get off the leash, he could potentially be a fantasy sleeper in the second half. Keep a close eye on him if you're scouting for options.

Sven Baertschi is on a five game scoring drought.

Baertschi has just a goal and five points in 15 games this season. He's got a fair amount of offensive upside, but we can't recommend owning him in standard leagues right now.

Sven Baertschi returned to the Calgary lineup on Friday after missing two games as a healthy scratch.

Baertschi saw 15:00 minutes of action with none coming on the power play or penalty kill and he had two shots on goal as he started the game with Sean Monahan as his center. Baertschi has only a goal and five points in 14 games this season so we cannot recommend having him in your lineup at this time.
