News: Granlund (shoulder) was reassigned to AHL Abbotsford on Thursday.
Impact: Although his shoulder injury prevented him from playing for the Flames over the last month of the season, but he's since received medical clearance to play and will attempt to help out Abbotsford during their stretch run. He led Abbotsford with 23 goals and 21 assists in 50 games prior to his call-up to Calgary.
Tue. Apr 15, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Giordano revealed that he played through a hand injury over the final few games of the season, Kristen Odland of the Calgary Herald reports.
Impact: The injury prompted Giordano to decline an invitation to play for Canada in the IHHF World Championships in Belarus next month, with doctors recommending that he take time to rest up. He's not expected to be limited once training camp kicks off in September. Despite missing 18 games due to injury this season, Giordano submitted a campaign worthy of Norris Trophy consideration. He totaled 14 goals, 33 assists and a plus-12 rating over his 64 games.
Tue. Apr 15, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Backlund (hand) will compete for Sweden in the IHHF World Championships in Belarus in May, Kristen Odland of the Calgary Herald reports.
Impact: This bit of news would suggest that the Flames are confident Backlund will be recovered from his left thumb injury by that time. The Swedish team will play their first preliminary game May 1 in Stockholm, and Backlund doesn't anticipate to be limited in his preparation. The 25-year-old submitted his best season so far for the Flames in 2013-14, putting up 18 goals and 21 assists in 76 games.
Mon. Apr 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: The Flames reassigned Cundari to AHL Chicago on Monday.
Impact: Cundari failed to crack the score sheet in four games with the Flames this season, and will return to the AHL, where he recorded nine goals and 14 assists in 54 games this season.
Mon. Apr 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: The Flames reassigned Breen to AHL Abbotsford on Monday.
Impact: With the Flames' season over, Breen will return to Abbotsford, where he recorded a goal and three assists in 38 games this season.
Mon. Apr 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: The Flames reassigned Billins to AHL Abbotsford on Monday.

Mon. Apr 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Ramo stopped 16 of 20 shots and was pulled in the second period of a 5-1 loss to Vancouver on Sunday.
Impact: Ramo finishes the season with a 17-15-4 record to go with a 2.65 GAA and .911 save percentage. He had a solid finish to the year, Sunday not withstanding, and is slated to be the Flames' No. 1 goalie heading into 2014-15.
Apr 13, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Backlund (hand) won't play Sunday against the Canucks.
Impact: Joining Backlund on the team's list of Sunday scratches are Ladislav Smid, Dennis Wideman, T.J. Brodie, Mike Cammalleri, David Jones, Markus Granlund, Tyler Wotherspoon, Kenny Agostino and Bryce Van Brabant.
Apr 13, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Cammalleri (face) is not in Sunday's lineup against the Canucks, Sportsnet Calgary's Roger Millions reports.
Impact: Cammalleri was viewed as a game-time decision Sunday, but he'll sit, thus finishing his season with 45 points in 63 contests.
Apr 13, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Cammalleri (face) is a game-time decision for Sunday's game against the Canucks, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.
Impact: Cammalleri, who took a stick to the face in Wednesday's game, sat out Friday's contest, but it looks like he might be able to suit up for the Flames in Sunday's season finale.
Apr 13, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Ramo is in line to start Sunday's game against the Canucks, Sportsnet's Rob Kerr reports.
Impact: Ramo, who is on track to make his 37th start of the season for the Flames, checks into Sunday's season finale with a 17-14-4 mark, with a 2.58 GAA and .913 save percentage.
Apr 13, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Brodie (soreness) will be a game-time decision for Sunday's contest, Scott Cruickshank of the Calgary Herald reports.
Impact: Brodie has the longest consecutive-games-played streak for the Flames right now, dating back to the first game of last season. He has 31 points in 81 games and has become one of Calgary's burgeoning stars.
Sat. Apr 12, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Hanowski was returned to AHL Abbotsford on Saturday, Scott Cruickshank of the Calgary Herald reports.
Impact: Hanowski spent the last month-and-a-half either on the fourth line or as a healthy scratch. A former third-round pick, the 23-year-old forward may compete for a roster spot next season but isn't one of the organization's more promising prospects.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Russell found the net for his seventh goal of the season Friday against the Jets.
Impact: Russell's power-play wrist shot from 40 feet out helped the Flames roar back from a 3-1 deficit in the second period to tie the match, but the Jets ultimately put the game away in the third. Russell would finish the game with a minus-2 rating and three blocked shots in his 23:56 of ice time.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Hudler pocketed a goal and an assist in Friday's 5-3 loss to the Jets.
Impact: Hudler has been flourishing for the Flames as the season winds down, extending his scoring streak to four games with the two-point performance. He has 17 goals and 37 assists in 74 contests this season.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Ramo surrendered four goals on 26 shot attempts in Friday's loss to the Jets.
Impact: Ramo looked very ordinary Friday night but deserves a little bit of a slack, given his extraordinary play heading into the contest. He entered Friday with wins in three straight contests, including a shutout of the Devils and dominating performances against the playoff-bound Kings and Lightning.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Cammalleri (face) is out for Friday's game against the Jets.
Impact: Cammalleri took a stick to the face during Wednesday's game, and he'll miss at least the one contest. It's unclear whether he has a shot to return for Sunday's season finale.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Byron (personal) is active for Friday's game against the Jets.
Impact: Byron first missed time while attending to the birth of his child, then was a healthy scratch for Wednesday's game against the Kings. He's back in Friday for the Flames' penultimate game of the season.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Backlund (hand) is out for Friday's game against the Jets.
Impact: Backlund will miss a fourth consecutive game, but he hasn't been ruled out beyond Friday. The Flames' season finale is scheduled for Sunday against the Canucks.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Ramo will receive the start in goal in Friday's game against the Jets, Jim Toth of 680 CJOB reports.
Impact: Even though he's been assaulted by pucks in the last few contests, Ramo has been superb for the Flames, leading the team to three straight victories. After a slow start to the campaign, Ramo has rounded into form since returning from injury and sports an acceptable 17-13-4 record, 2.54 GAA and .915 save percentage for the Flames. He's positioned himself well to enter the 2014-15 campaign as the team's unquestioned No. 1 netminder.
Thu. Apr 10, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Smid (upper body) is not expected to return this season, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.
Impact: Coach Bob Hartley suggested that among the Flames' injured skaters, only Mikael Backlund had a chance at returning for the team's remaining games, effectively ruling out Smid. After coming over in a trade with Edmonton back in November, Smid was highly productive on the defensive end for Calgary, racking up 141 hits and 134 blocks.
Thu. Apr 10, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Granlund (shoulder) is unlikely to play again this season, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.
Impact: Coach Bob Hartley suggested that among the Flames' injured skaters, only Mikael Backlund had a chance at returning for the team's remaining games, effectively ruling out Granlund. After dominating offensively at AHL Abbotsford, Granlund was impressive in his limited action before the injury, logging two goals and an assist in seven games.
Thu. Apr 10, 2014 | STATS
News: Ramo made 41 saves in Wednesday's 4-3 shootout win over Los Angeles.
Impact: Ramo has posted a 1.30 GAA and one shutout during a three-game winning streak.
Thu. Apr 10, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Cammalleri took a stick to the face in Wednesday's game against the Kings and is uncertain to play Friday against the Jets, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.
Impact: Cammalleri stayed in the game despite suffering a cut on his face, but was kept off the ice for Thursday's practice. The Flames figure to announce a decision on his status following Friday's morning skate.
Thu. Apr 10, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Although it looked as though he would play Wednesday against the Kings, Byron (personal) ended up missing his fourth straight game.
Impact: It's more likely than not that Byron was made a healthy scratch by coach Bob Hartley, but we'll consider him day-to-day until he actually returns to the lineup.
Thu. Apr 10, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Monahan potted his 21st goal to aid in a 4-3 shootout victory against Los Angeles on Wednesday.
Impact: Monahan has certainly proved he belongs in the NHL this season, leading the Flames in goals and tallying 33 points in 73 games. He still has some rough edges, but he is only 18 and should blossom into a standout player in the next couple years.
Thu. Apr 10, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Stajan scored in the Flames' 4-3 shootout win against the Kings on Wednesday.
Impact: Stajan has endured some tough personal times this season, but is playing some of his best hockey to end the season. He has nine points in his last seven games, including a four-point outburst.
Thu. Apr 10, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Ramo turned away 41 shots to lead Calgary to a 4-3 shootout victory against Los Angeles on Wednesday.
Impact: The final goal Ramo let in was off a bad turnover, and he showed his mettle on a night when the Kings outplayed the Flames. He's rewarded Calgary for its faith in him since the Olympic break, yielding 20 goals in nine games and compiling a 6-3 record.
Thu. Apr 10, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Galiardi had his third multi-point contest of the season Wednesday in a 4-3 shootout victory against the Kings.
Impact: Galiardi had been the victim of a healthy scratch a couple times in the past month, but seems to be playing a little better as the season comes to a close. He has 17 points in 61 games, and will be a free agent after this season.
Wed. Apr 9, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Jones (upper body) will not play again this season, Wes Gilbertson of the Calgary Sun reports.
Impact: Jones looked like he might be on the cusp of a return after resuming skating about two weeks ago, but he just ran out of time to get fully healthy again. With the long offseason to come for the non-playoff bound Flames, Jones should be ready to go for training camp without much concern.
Wed. Apr 9, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Wideman (upper body) has been shut down for the rest of the season, Wes Gilbertson of the Calgary Sun reports.
Impact: With the Flames not playing for anything meaningful in the season's final week, there was no need to return Wideman to action when he's not yet 100 percent healthy. He finishes the 2013-14 campaign with 21 points and a minus-15 rating over 46 games.
Wed. Apr 9, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Byron (personal) will play Wednesday against the Kings, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 reports.
Impact: Byron has been tending to a personal issue recently, and hasn't suited up since April 1 against the Maple Leafs. He currently has a line of 7/13/20 through 45 games this season.
Wed. Apr 9, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Stajan (personal) will play Wednesday against the Kings, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 reports.
Impact: Stajan hasn't suited up since April 1 due to a personal matter, but was in the midst of a four-game point streak before the hiatus. He has 13 goals and 18 assists in 60 games on the season.
Wed. Apr 9, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Ramo will start between the pipes Wednesday against the Kings, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 reports.
Impact: Ramo has emerged victorious in each of his last two starts, including a 31-save shutout of the Devils on Sunday. He's now 16-13-4 on the season with a .914 save percentage and a 2.53 GAA.
Tue. Apr 8, 2014 | STATS
News: Hudler recorded his 35th assist in Monday's win at New Jersey.
Impact: Hudler's 35 assists surpass his 34 in 2008-09 for a new personal-best.
Tue. Apr 8, 2014 | STATS
News: Cammalleri was credited with his 18th assist in Monday's victory against the Devils.
Impact: Cammalleri has 13 goals and 10 assists over his last 19 games after going without a point in the nine contests prior to that stretch.
Tue. Apr 8, 2014 | STATS
News: Giordano scored his 14th goal of the season in Monday's win at New Jersey.
Impact: Giordano has five goals and 13 assists over his last 20 games.
Tue. Apr 8, 2014 | STATS
News: Ramo stopped all 31 shots in Monday's win at New Jersey for his second shutout of the season.
Impact: Ramo is 7-3-0 over his last 11 games - including 10 starts - with a 1.85 goals-against average.
Mon. Apr 7, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Giordano's power-play goal Monday against the Devils was the only goal in the game for either team. He also saw 28:21 of ice time.
Impact: Perhaps buried in Calgary's disappointing year is the impressive season for Giordano. He's scored 14 goals and 46 points in 61 games, and even though he plays a ton of minutes for a bad team, he's gone plus-12.
Mon. Apr 7, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Ramo stopped all 31 shots he faced in a shutout win over the Devils on Monday.
Impact: This is Ramo's second shutout of the season, and in his last two starts he has let in only one goal.
Mon. Apr 7, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Backlund (hand) will not play in Monday's tilt with the Devils, according to the Calgary Herald.
Impact: Backlund has played well this season, amassing a career-high 39 points in 76 games. He's been able to stay consistent and healthy for the first time, and should be one of the team's top centers heading into 2014-15.
Mon. Apr 7, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Smid (upper body) will not play in Monday's game against New Jersey, the Calgary Herald reports.
Impact: Smid is likely not going to play the rest of the season, as the Flames have been eliminated from playoff contention.
Mon. Apr 7, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Ramo will start in net Monday against the Devils, the Calgary Herald reports.
Impact: Although Ramo has had an up-and-down year, his stats aren't that bad -- he's 15-13-4 with a 2.61 GAA. He's played fairly well since the Olympic break and is finally getting some offensive help, so there are worse options out there.
Sat. Apr 5, 2014 | STATS
News: Cammalleri scored his 24th goal of the season in Friday's win over Florida.
Impact: Cammalleri has 13 goals and nine assists over his last 18 contests.
Fri. Apr 4, 2014 | RotoWire
News: MacDonald stopped all but one of the 35 shots he faced in Friday's 2-1 win over Florida.
Impact: MacDonald has ceded time the Calgary crease of late and has six wins on the season. Calgary is hardly a bastion of reliable goaltending, but players like MacDonald can be useful as spot starters on nights where there aren't many games.
Fri. Apr 4, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Agostino scored the opening goal in Friday's 2-1 win over Florida, the first goal of his NHL career.
Impact: Agostino is a talented prospect who has seen limited NHL action this season, playing five games. He's one of many players getting their first look at NHL action as the Flames examine what they have for next season.
Fri. Apr 4, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Cammalleri potted the game-winning goal in Friday's 2-1 victory over Florida, his second goal in as many games.
Impact: Cammalleri has been on a tear since Deadline Day when he was not traded from Calgary. He's playing for a new contract, so there's incentive for him, but the Flames as a whole have been enjoying unexpected success as they play out the string. Look for Cammalleri to be a part of whatever offense Calgary can muster.
Fri. Apr 4, 2014 | STATS
News: Cammalleri had a goal and an assist in Thursday's 4-1 win at Tampa Bay.
Impact: Cammalleri has 18 points in his last 13 games.
Fri. Apr 4, 2014 | STATS
News: Glencross scored twice in Thursday's 4-1 win at Tampa Bay.
Impact: Glencross has five goals and four assists in the last eight games.
Fri. Apr 4, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Byron (personal) is out for Friday's game against the Panthers.
Impact: Byron will miss a second consecutive game to be with his family for the birth of his child.
Fri. Apr 4, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Backlund (hand) will not play in Friday's game against the Panthers, Scott Cruickshank of the Calgary Herald reports.
Impact: Backlund hurt his hand while blocking a shot during Thursday's game, and he will miss at least one contest. The Flames will reportedly slide Mike Cammalleri over to center in Backlund's absence Friday.
Fri. Apr 4, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Backlund took a shot off the hand during Thursday's game and is questionable for Friday against the Panthers, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.
Impact: Backlund may come down to a game-time decision, but he played his typical 20 minutes Thursday. He's registered 26 shots on goal over the last five games but has just one point (an assist) over that stretch.
Fri. Apr 4, 2014 | STATS
News: Stajan missed Thursday's game due to personal reasons.
Impact: It's uncertain when he will return.
Fri. Apr 4, 2014 | STATS
News: The Flames have announced that Byron is away from the team while his wife gives birth.
Impact: No duration has been given for the absence.
Mon. Mar 31, 2014 | STATS
News: Monahan scored his 20th goal of the season in Sunday's loss at Ottawa.
Impact: Monahan's goal ended his 11-game streak without one, the longest drought of his rookie season.
Mon. Mar 31, 2014 | STATS
News: Hudler recorded two assists in Sunday's loss at Ottawa.
Impact: Hudler has two goals and four assists over his last seven contests.
Sun. Mar 30, 2014 | STATS
