David Wolf has joined the Calgary Flames from the minors.

He has 12 goals, 21 points and 68 penalty minutes in 35 games with Calgary's AHL affiliate in Adirondack this year. The 25-year-old has not played in an NHL game in his career yet.

The Calgary Flames have brought up Tyler Wotherspoon.

He was up with the Flames prior to the All-Star break, but he was a healthy scratch so he hasn't played with Calgary yet this season. Wotherspoon has two goals and 15 points in 39 games with Adirondack this year.
Jan 26 - 2:18 PM

Sven Baertschi has been called up by Calgary.

He has averaged just under nine minutes of ice time per game in 14 NHL appearances this season. Baertschi has three assists and 11 shots. In 28 matches with AHL Adirondack, he has five goals and 17 points.

Johnny Gaudreau got an opportunity to play on a line with fellow rookie Filip Forsberg during the All-Star Game.

Gaudreau assisted on both of Forsberg's goals. The two are among the frontrunners to win the Calder Trophy this season. "Yeah, he's a skilled hockey player," Gaudreau said of Forsberg. "It was a lot of fun playing with him and getting a chance to play with a whole bunch of other guys. I like how they rotated a few guys on our line, so us young guys got to play with a lot of different people."

Johnny Gaudreau will play in the NHL All-Star Game on Sunday.

There were initially some reports that he was included as an injury replacement for Sidney Crosby, then he was out, but he’s officially in now, which makes sense because Team Toews would’ve been playing the game a man short. Gaudreau is also participating in the breakaway challenge during the skills competition on Saturday. Gaudreau has 13 goals and 35 points this season.

Johnny Gaudreau said that being a healthy scratch early in the season worked.

Gaudreau played in the first five games of the season but was struggling as he had yet to get a shot on net when coach Bob Hartley decided to sit him in the press box. "That was pretty eye-opening for me," Gaudreau said. "I think I was pretty nervous (about) getting sent down (to the minors). I went (five) games without a point or without producing offensively. I came back and was pretty concerned about getting sent down. Ever since that game, I kind of just took off from there." He certainly has as Gaudreau has 13 goals and 35 points with 97 shots on goal in the 41 games since the benching.

Johnny Gaudreau won't play in the All-Star Game after all.

He was originally expected to fill Sidney Crosby's spot, but the league decided to keep it vacant. Gaudreau is in Columbus either way for the rookie skills competition, which makes the decision to keep the slot vacant interesting.
Jan 23 - 5:57 PM

Johnny Gaudreau has been included on the All-Star Game roster.

The NHL needed a last minute replacement for Sidney Crosby and Gaudreau was already in Columbus for the rookie showcase. Gaudreau has 13 goals and 35 points in 46 contests in 2014-15.

Joni Ortio's short-term future with the Calgary Flames is unclear.

Ortio has been sent to the minors for the duration of the NHL All-Star break, but he might be called up again when it's over. He has an impressive 1.98 GAA and .931 save percentage in five contests, but he's coming off of a rough outing against Anaheim. That poor start might be enough to keep him off the roster for now given that the Flames' top two goaltenders are now healthy.

Tyler Wotherspoon has been reassigned to Calgary's AHL affiliate in Adirondack.

He was a healthy scratch Wednesday and hasn't played any games with Calgary this year. Wotherspoon suited up in 14 NHL games last season, though.
Jan 22 - 6:43 PM

Markus Granlund has been sent down by Calgary.

He was a healthy scratch Wednesday, but he's played in 33 games with Calgary this campaign. Granlund has five goals and 13 points at the NHL level in 2014-15.
Jan 22 - 6:39 PM

Joni Ortio has been assigned to AHL Adirondack.

Ortio didn't have a strong performance in his last game before the All-Star break when he was pulled against Anaheim. However, he went into that contest on a four-game win streak. Ortio owns a .931 save percentage and a 1.98 goals-against average in five appearances with Calgary. It will be interesting to see if he'll be called back up after the break because Karri Ramo is back from injury.
Jan 22 - 6:36 PM

Dennis Wideman had an assist in a 6-3 defeat to Anaheim on Wednesday.

Wideman is on a four-game point streak. He has 12 goals and 28 points in 46 contests in 2014-15.

Mark Giordano had an assist in a 6-3 loss to Anaheim on Wednesday.

Giordano has only been held off the scoresheet in one of his last four games. He has 11 goals and 40 points in 47 contests in 2014-15. His career-high is 47 points, so the fact that he's already reached the 40-point mark is obviously big. That being said, he shouldn't slow down significantly unless he gets hurt.

Sean Monahan picked up a goal in the Flames' 6-3 loss to Anaheim on Wednesday.

Sean Monahan has now scored a goal in four straight games. He has five points over that stretch heading into the All-Star break. No sophomore slump for this 20 year-old as he has 30 points in 47 games, nearly eclipsing his 35 total points in his 75 game rookie season. Start him your leagues as a potential for high upside.
