Emile Poirier has yet to be cleared for contact after undergoing shoulder surgery last spring.

The original prognosis was a return to action in late-November or early December. The former first round pick, 22nd overall in 2013, played with a bad shoulder all last season and still managed 43 goals and 87 points for Gatineau of the QMJHL before getting four points in two regular season games with Abbotsford of the AHL when his season ended in junior hockey. He will likely return to junior as the Flames will not want to rush him after surgery. He is skating at this time and could be a nice late selection in deep dynasty pools.
