Markus Granlund and Joni Ortio will watch their Flames take on the Jets from the stands on Friday night.

While Ortio is firmly planted in the third goalie seat behind Jonas Hiller and Karri Ramo, at least for the moment, Granlund entices with some offensive flare. The 22-year-old forward has a 25-gold season for the AHL Abbotford Heat under his belt already, and if he can transfer that skill to the NHL level, he could be a quality scorer for a long time.

Markus Granlund has been called up by the Calgary Flames.

Granlund had a goal and two assists in his first AHL contest of the season. With Lance Bouma (leg) expected to miss the next three months, this likely isn't a short-term promotion for Granlund.

Markus Granlund and Josh Jooris lead the cavalcade of scratches for Calgary in Friday's Game Four against Anaheim.

Granlund and Jooris will be joined by forward David Wolf and Drew Shore, along with defenders Tyler Wotherspoon and Corey Potter. Unfortunately, there isn't much fantasy value here to speak of.

There will be no line up changes for Calgary as they try to close out the Vancouver Canucks in Game Six on Saturday night.

Markus Granlund will be joined by fellow forward Drew Shore along with defender Corey Potter in the stands. It does not appear that Coach Hartley has any confidence in these three.

Markus Granlund scored two times to lead the Flames to a 4-0 win over the Oilers on Saturday night.

Don’t get too excited just yet. Granlund is still only 21 years old, and has eight goals and 18 points in 45 games. He is still probably at least a year away from developing into a usable fantasy player. Dennis Wideman had a goal and two helpers, while Joe Colborne potted the other marker.

Markus Granlund (flu) will return to the Flames lineup Monday night versus the Dallas Stars.

Markus Granlund missed practice on Saturday due to the flu.
