The Calgary Flames have played four pre-season games thus far, picking up two victories. More important than the wins and losses, though, are the assessments the Flames are making on the players vying for a handful of job openings.
Here’s a snapshot of how the races are shaping up.
Five spots are spoken for: Rasmus Andersson, Mark Giordano, TJ Brodie, Travis Hamonic and Noah Hanifin. That leaves two gigs up for grabs.
Oliver Kylington is either going to play the left side of the third pair, or he’ll be in Stockton as he’s waiver exempt.
