Flames Daily Roundup: Tanev Generates Interest, Canadiens Look Toward Deadline



Following the NHL on any given morning, afternoon, or evening can be an arduous process. Look at one site, and check another; that can take a lot out of your day. The Flames Daily Roundup finds the Flames news you may have missed and sprinkles in some drama from around the League.

For example, Flyers blue chip prospect Matvei Mitchkov is having a rough season. Rough. Following a bout with pneumonia, Mitchkov was benched for the third period on Jan. 29 after going -4 through 40 minutes against Kunlun Red Star. 


Flames Daily Roundup


Calgary Hockey Now

-Chris Tanev is generating a ton of interest around the NHL. Maybe it’s time for Flames general manager Craig Conroy to consider keeping him around to foster the blue line.

-Calgary has a sparkling 1-3-1 record against Chicago since October 2022. Is that acceptable?  

-A questionable hit from Jimmy Vesey may have sent Adam Ruzicka on a spiral that has landed the Slovak on the Arizona Coyotes. 


Other Flames Daily News 

-Former Calgary Flame Kerby Rychel took a shot at the Columbus Blue Jackets yesterday regarding their development of 2022 sixth overall pick David Jiricek. 

Picked 19th overall in 2013, Rychel pushed for a full time NHL role between 2014 and 2019. The 6-foot-1, 213-pound power forward averaged only 9:30 in 32 games for the Blue Jackets in 2015-2016. Kerby played a mere nine games beyond that campaign between stints with the Blue Jackets, Canadiens, and Flames.  

Danny Austin and Wes Gilbertson talk about the Flames season so far.
