A look ahead at a busy October for the Flames

The Calgary Flames are now headed into their off-season, with a lot of decisions to make as they hope to fix the issues that led to another first round ouster – the third in four seasons for the club. While they have some time to lick their wounds, they’ll be quite busy in October when the NHL’s calendar flips over to 2020-21.

Via PuckPedia, the Flames have 27 players under active contracts for 2020-21.

  • Forwards (16) Matthew Tkachuk, Johnny Gaudreau, Sean Monahan, Mikael Backlund, Milan Lucic, Elias Lindholm, Derek Ryan, Sam Bennett, Dillon Dube, Luke Philp, Eetu Tuulola, Adam Ruzicka, Martin Pospisil, Dmitry Zavgorodniy, Matthew Phillips and Emilio Pettersen
