Blake Coleman brought a champion’s work ethic to the Calgary Flames in 2021-22

The Flames’ big free agent addition from the 2021 off-season saw Blake Coleman arrive in Calgary fresh off back-to-back Stanley Cup championships. He brought in a tremendous reputation as a shutdown player that could contribute with big goals. One season into his deal the reputation remains intact.

The past

The University of Miami (Ohio) alumnus didn’t immediately charge into the NHL. Drafted in the third round by the New Jersey Devils in 2011, Blake Coleman went the college route afterwards. After four years at school, he entered the AHL with the Albany Devils.

In 2016-17 he made his NHL debut – never going back to the minors again.
