Matthew Tkachuk recorded just one shot on goal against the Rangers Thursday. He will look to bounce back against the Wild Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Tkachuk continues to lead Calgary in scoring. He has 36 points this season.

David Rittich has signed a two-year, $5.5 million contract extension with the Calgary Flames. (Source: TSN)

Fantasy Impact: The 26 year-old managed a career high 27 wins in 2018-19, along with a .911 save percentage and 2.61 GAA in 45 games. Rittich split time last season with Mike Smith, and will have to hold off newly signed Cam Talbot this season. While he is far from a guarantee, Rittich will enter camp on top of the Flames goaltender depth-chart. If either goalie in Calgary is able to earn the bulk of the starts, there is definite wins potential on a strong team with a very good defense.

Sam Bennett has signed a two-year, $5.1 million contract extension with the Calgary Flames. (Source: TSN)

Fantasy Impact: Bennett has not developed in to the high-end player that many were expecting as the fourth-overall pick in 2014. His best point total to date was 36, which came in his rookie season. The past three seasons have seen totals of 26, 26, and 27, consistent though certainly underwhelming. While there is still some reason to believe that Bennett could break-out, he was a very highly touted prospect, and is still just 23 years-old. It is starting to seem less likely with each passing season. Bennett has struggled to produce early in his career, though his penalty minutes are useful in certain formats.

The conditional 2020 third-round pick in the James Neal-for-Milan Lucic trade is dependant on the number of goals scored by each player. (Source: Mark Spector on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The Oilers will send the Flames a third-round pick in 2020 if James Neal scores a minimum of 21 goals, and he bests Milan Lucic by at least 10 goals. Excluding last year, James Neal has had no trouble hitting the 21-goal mark in any season. Considering the Oilers lack-of-depth on the wing, there is a good chance that Neal will end up in a top-six role in Edmonton. Lining up with any of Connor McDavid, Leon Draisaitl, or perhaps most likely Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, should give James Neal every opportunity to hit the 21-goal mark next season.

Mike Smith has signed a one-year $2 million contract with the Edmonton Oilers Monday. (Source: Stephen Whyno on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: In 2018-19 with the Calgary Flames, Smith possessed a 23-16-2 record, 2.72 GAA, and 0.898 SV% through 42 games played. He is currently 37-years old and is in the final years of his career. Ideally, the Oilers plan to use Smith as a backup option to Mikko Koskinen during the 2019-20 season.

Michael Frolik notched one goal and two assists on Friday night when the Calgary Flames defeated the Florida Panthers 4-3. Frolik had 15:15 of ice time, and finished the game with 1 SOG and 3 hits to go along with his 3 points.

Fantasy Impact: Frolik has been sparked recently and now has 6 points in his last 6 games. With that being said, his 15 points through 29 games are less than inspiring for fantasy purposes.

Elias Lindholm picked up two assists on Thursday night when the Calgary Flames defeated the Winnipeg Jets 4-1. Lindholm finished the game with 17:01 of ice time, 1 SOG, and a +2 rating to go along with his pair of assists.

Fantasy Impact: Elias Lindholm is now up to 41 points through his first 38 games played with the Calgary Flames. Lindholm is no doubt benefiting from playing on the wing with Sean Monahan and Johnny Gaudreau. As long as that trio stays intact, look for all three of them to continue to produce at over a point per game pace.

Noah Hanifin logged 23:13 in ice time, while adding an assist in Sunday's 3-2 win over the Chicago Blackhawks.

Fantasy Impact: Hanifin is part of Calgary's top shutdown defense pair with Travis Hamonic. The duo should continue to see big minutes as the season rolls on. Hanifin has some fantasy value due to the minutes he plays and his role on the second power play unit, but he is not an elite defenseman in terms of fantasy production.


T.J. Brodie got his 9th assist of the season on Mikael Backlund's first period goal in the Flames 4-1 win over the Kings on Friday night.

Fantasy Impact: T.J. Brodie has been on a bit of a run lately with 1 goal and 4 assists in his last 5 games. Brodie has 2 goals and 9 assists through 26 games. Brodie has been a key secondary offensive contributor over the past several seasons averaging somewhere in the 35-45 point range. Currently Brodie isn't on any power play unit so that hinders his point potential. Brodie is a solid medium to deep league player.

Travis Hamonic collected two assists in the Flames 4-2 win over the Oilers on Saturday night. Hamonic's first assist came on Sean Monahan's third period goal. Hamonic followed that up in the third period with an assist on Elias Lindholm's goal.

Fantasy Impact: Travis Hamonic will never be considered an offensive defenseman. But for a more stay-at-home defenseman he has put up decent points in the past with a career high of 33 points with the Islanders in 2014-2015. Hamonic has 2 goals and 3 assists through 12 games. Hamonic is a decent player in leagues that have hits and blocked shots as categories and/or deep leagues.

Jon Gillies saved 26 of the 27 shots he faced in the 7-1 victory.

Fantasy Impact: It was his third victory in 11 games for 2017-18. He ended the season with a GAA around 3.

Category: Game Recaps


Matt Stajan recorded an assist in the season finale. He was also called for a minor penalty.

Fantasy Impact: He recorded just 12 points in 68 games in 2017-18 and is a center. This is not the stat line of a fantasy asset for most leagues.

Category: Game Recaps


Curtis Lazar recorded an assist during the season finale.

Fantasy Impact: 12 points in 65 games for a right-winger. No, Lazar was not fantasy relevant for 2017-18.

Category: Game Recaps


Matt Bartkowski recorded an assist on the fifth Flames goal.

Fantasy Impact: He just wasn't fantasy relevant in 2017-18 with 3 points in 18 games. For his career, it is 47 points in 253 games.

Category: Game Recaps


Michael Stone recorded an assist on the eventual game-winner.

Fantasy Impact: He played the whole season but recorded just 10 points and 28 PIM.

Category: Game Recaps


Michael Ferland recorded the lone assist on the first goal of the game.

Fantasy Impact: In 77 games, he recorded 41 points. This was a strong step forward and makes him interesting next season.
