All Canadian Clash At Canada Life Center



Projected Lines

Calgary Flames versus Winnipeg Jets

Canada Life Center

Winnipeg, Manitoba

The Flames will open the new year on the road with a quick trip to Winnipeg as they get set to meet the Jets!

Our lineup projections will start in the crease, where we won’t see any change from New Year’s Eve.

Per Wes Gilbertson of the Calgary Sun:

Markstrom’s W over the Canucks was his fourth win in his last five starts and he’ll look to keep it going this evening. He carries a record of 12-9-4 into the game tonight alongside a 2.78 Goals Against Average and an .895 Save Percentage. When the teams last met, Markstrom made 21 saves for the win back in November at the Saddledome.

Wes had more roster news from today’s optional morning skate in Manitoba, as pertaining to a NYE injury:

There is currently no diagnosis or timeline for Ritchie’s injury, but he did not skate at pratice yesterday or at this morning’s optional.

In other roster news, Dennis Gilbert and Radim Zohorna were sent back down to the AHL as of December 29th, but Zohorna was recalled one day later on December 30th. This leaves the active roster at 22.

Lineup Looks:


Barring any major changes when lineups are submitted, they are projected as follows:

FORWARD 1: Dube-Lindholm-Toffoli
