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.

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 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.

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.
