Flames Daily Roundup: Calgary-Born Bruiser Once Again in Trouble



Yegor Sharangovich Flames Daily

Following the NHL on any given morning, afternoon, or evening can be an arduous process. Look at one site, 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, The Devils-Rangers rivalry took another step forward on Monday night when Calgary kid Matt Rempe once again found himself a league lightning rod for controversy after throwing a brutal elbow to the head of Devils defenceman Jonas Seigenthaler. Devils enforcer Kurtis MacDermid called out the 6-foot-8 bruiser after the game for not dropping the gloves prior to the hit.
