Micheal Ferland missed Saturday's game with a lower-body injury.

Ferland had a goal in the Flames first five games. He should be good for 45-50 penalty minutes and 10 goals so his fantasy value is limited. Consider him day-to-day for now.

Jaromir Jagr picked up his first point as a Calgary Flame Saturday.

Jagr got an assist on Johnny Gaudreau's second goal of the game. The veteran has now played in three contests for the Flames. The 45-year-old is playing in his 24th NHL season and barring any significant injury, will become the NHL's all-time leader in games played before the end of the season. He really does not have fantasy value this season.

Mike Smith stopped 27 of 29 shots in a 5-2 win against the Vancouver Canucks on Saturday.

It was a much needed bounce back performance for Smith, who got lit up by the Senators Friday night. He made several big saves and looked in complete control for large portions of the contest. The win improves his record to 4-2-0 on the season with a 2.59 goals against average and .929 save percentage.

Mark Giordano scored a goal in a 5-2 win over the Vancouver Canucks on Saturday night.

Giordano's goal came shorthanded after he took a feed in his skates from Dougie Hamilton and fired the puck passed Markstrom. The goal marked the 100th of Giordano's career. Not bad for an undrafted free-agent signed by the Flames in 2004. Giordano is up to three points in six games to start the year and should be owned in all formats.

Mike Smith will start again Saturday against the Vancouver Canucks.

Smith allowed five goals on 22 shots in a 6-0 loss to the Ottawa Senators last night. He'll look for a big bounce back game tonight against the Canucks, a team he has a 8-8-2 record against in his career. You could probably do better than Smith tonight on a back-to-back but we wouldn't be opposed to starting him.

Dougie Hamilton had a pretty dismal game against the Senators Friday night.

He was a team-worst minus three in the Flames' 6-0 loss to Ottawa. Hamilton has two assists in five games but no points on the power play. Look for the talented rearguard to pick up his play in the coming weeks.
Oct 14 - 12:47 PM

Eddie Lack is the probable starter Saturday against Vancouver.

Mike Smith has started all five of Calgary's games so far this season, including Friday night's 6-0 loss to Ottawa, so it may be Lack time in Calgary. We would be a little leery about starting Lack Saturday night against a surprisingly effective Vancouver squad.

Jaromir Jagr and his new Flames teammates lost 6-0 to the Ottawa Senators on Friday night.

Just like the rest of his teammates, Jagr was held off the scoresheet. However, he did lead the team with four shots on goal, the first four of his career with the Flames. He skated alongside Sam Bennett and Kris Versteeg and should probably stay unowned in most leagues. Jagr has zero points in two games this season.
Oct 14 - 12:01 AM

Mike Smith stopped 17 of 22 shots in a 6-0 loss to the Ottawa Senators.

Just like that, Smith see's his three-game winning streak come to an end. He had an average start to the game but Ottawa really took control in the third period, where they scored four goals. Some noted the Flames look a little tired out there, but they won't have much time to recover as they host the Canucks tomorrow night. Check back here, but we'd expect Eddie Lack to get the start in goal for the Flames. Smith's record drops to 3-2-0 on the season with a 2.71 goals against average and a .929 save percentage.
Oct 13 - 11:55 PM

Freddie Hamilton will be a healthy scratch in Friday's game against Ottawa.

This will be his fifth straight game as a healthy scratch. The forward had just two goals in and a minus-3 rating in 26 games last season. Brett Kulak and Tanner Glass will also watch the game from the press box. None of these three players will have any kind of fantasy value this season.

Mike Smith will probably start on Friday.

Smith was the first goalie off the ice following the morning skate, which usually indicates who the starter will be. He's been great with the Flames so far as he's posted a 3-1-0 record, 2.00 GAA, and .950 save percentage in four starts.

Marek Hrivik successfully cleared waivers.

Hrivik entered the season with an upper-body injury and began on the injured reserve list as a result. Now that he's healthy, he can play in the AHL.

The Calgary Flames have waived Marek Hrivik.

Hrivik started the season on the injured reserve list due to an upper-body issue. Apparently he's okay now and if he clears waivers he'll probably be sent to the minors.
Oct 12 - 1:11 PM

Michael Frolik scored a goal and registered an assist in the Flames' 4-3 win against Los Angeles on Wednesday.

Frolik's goal at 7:47 of the first period was his first marker of the 2017-18 campaign. He now has three points in four games this season. In 2016-17 he finished with 17 goals and 44 points in 82 contests.

Johnny Gaudreau picked up two assists in a 4-3 overtime win versus the Kings Wednesday night.

After being held off the scoresheet in the Flames' opener, Gaudreau has recorded at least a point in three straight games. He already has a goal and seven points in four games this season. He had something of a down campaign in 2016-17 with 61 points, but we're looking for him to finish back in that 70-80 point range this season.
