Hunter Shinkaruk scored on Friday with Stockton to bring to an end a 14 game goalless streak in the AHL.

Shinkaruk is trying to crack the Flames lineup but has been in the AHL most of the season and has eight goals and 21 points in 29 games. He has only one point this season in seven NHL games but his play in the AHL has actually been good despite the slump. "I’m not really too worried about my numbers," Shinkaruk said. "I feel like I’m having a pretty good season. Even though maybe I don’t have as many goals as I did last year, the points are still there. I feel like I’m playing well. I feel like our line, with Klimchuk and Jankowski, has been good and we have to continue to be good. I’m not really too worried about (the stats). I feel like I know how I’m playing and I kind of let that do the talking." Shinkaruk should get another chance this season but if not, he should get every opportunity to make the Flames in training camp come September.

Hunter Shinkaruk has been sent to the minors.

Shinkaruk has an assist in seven games with the Calgary Flames this season. He was only averaging 10:35 minutes in the NHL, so heading to AHL Stockton will give the 22-year-old a chance to play significantly more.

Hunter Shinkaruk will watch Friday's match against the Wild from the press box.

Through seven games this season the youngster has just one point with three blocks and hits. So far, he simply hasn't impressed.

Hunter Shinkaruk will join Mark Jankowski and Brett Kulak as healthy scratches against the Toronto Maple Leafs

Shinkaruk has one assist in seven games in 2016-17, averaging a very low 10:35 in ice time. He dressed against the New York Islanders in the Flames last game, but finds himself in the press box again on Wednesday. Jankowski was recently recalled from Stockton and made his NHL debut in the Flames last game, skating 10:18 with zeros across the board.

Hunter Shinkaruk will be a healthy scratch in Tuesday's game against the Minnesota Wild.

The 22-year-old suited up in each of Calgary's last three games, but didn't really stand out. He has no points and a minus-4 rating this season. Jyrki Jokipakka and Linden Vey will also sit out.

The Calgary Flames have recalled Hunter Shinkaruk.

The 21-year-old has posted four goals and eight points in seven games for AHL Stockton thus far, and has three points in eight career NHL games. The talent is real as he's nearly a point-per-game player in 143 minor league games. Maybe he too can be another wily youngster to make an impact this season.

The Calgary Flames have assigned Hunter Shinkaruk to AHL Stockton.

Shinkaruk posted 12 points in 17 games for Stockton, and three points in seven games for Calgary after coming over from Vancouver in February for Markus Granlund. Much is expected from the 21-year-old, but perhaps not just yet.

Hunter Shinkaruk scored a goal in his first career home game for the Calgary Flames on Tuesday night.

Shinkaruk scored off a Mark Giordano rebound late in the second period. It was his second career goal, and third point, of his young NHL career. With all the drama surrounding scoring a goal in his first career home game, the 21 year-old is focused on winning ""At the end of the day, when I come up here it’s to help the team win," Shinkaruk said. "It sucks when you don’t get the win . . . I thought we did some good things but, obviously, we need to find a way to hold on." The Flames went on to lose the game in OT to the Kings 5-4.

Hunter Shinkaruk is expected to play in his first home game with the Calgary Flames on Tuesday.

Shinkaruk has participated in five NHL games at this point, but they've all been on the road. It's of course always nice when a player can work before a friendly crowd, but this contest will be particularly special for Shinkaruk given that he's a Calgary native. He's projected to continue to play alongside Johnny Gaudreau and Sean Monahan for now, making him worth keeping an eye on for that alone.

He has five goals and 10 points in 14 matches with Calgary's AHL affiliate, the Stockton Heat, since was obtained in a trade with Vancouver. Shinkaruk may see his first action with the Flames during his recall.

Hunter Shinkaruk admitted that the news that his hometown team, the Calgary Flames, had acquired him from Vancouver was pretty emotional for him.

"I didn’t cry but I was pretty close when I called my mom because she was crying. My sister too," Shinkaruk said. "It’s pretty surreal when the team you grew up dreaming of playing for trades for you. The smile hasn’t come off my face ever since. My dad was at work so he couldn’t be crying because he had to take care of patients. I think he was close though. I wouldn’t be surprised if he sheds a few tears when he gets home with my mom tonight." Calgary sent Markus Granlund to Vancouver in order to get Shinkaruk. In 45 AHL games this season, Shinkaruk has 21 goals and 39 points.

Flames General Manager Brad Treliving was excited to acquire local boy Hunter Shinkaruk from the Vancouver Canucks.

Giddy up here and get there to meet the coaches and the team. Get playing and go from there. We've got a lot of young guys that are shooting for their opportunity and he's another one of those guys." The 21-year-old has 21 goals in 45 games in the AHL this season.
