The Flames have assigned Shinkaruk to AHL Stockton. Acquired in a trade with the Canucks back on Feb. 22, Shinkaruk ended up scoring two goals and three points in seven games for the Flames. He'll close out the current season with Stockton (where he has tallied 10 points in 14 games to date) and the 21-year-old forward will thus look forward to making a run at a roster spot with the big club next fall to start the 2016-17 season.
Shinkaruk recorded a goal on two shots and added in three hits in Tuesday's 5-4 loss to the Kings. After netting his first NHL goal a few games ago, Shinkaruk has now picked up his second. That's now three points in five games for the 21-year-old. Should he finish the season strong, he could be in for some more ice time next season, which will surely delight fantasy owners.
Shinkaruk scored his first NHL goal, but finished with a minus-3 rating as his Flames fell 8-3 in Anaheim. Shinkaruk's tally came with the Flames trailing 5-0 in the second period, but it does give him points in consecutive games since being recalled from AHL Stockton. The 2013 first-rounder is showing offensive promise, though it's tough to extrapolate too much from a game like this one.
The Flames have recalled Shinkaruk from AHL Stockton on an emergency basis. Shinkaruk, who was traded to the Flames last month in exchange for Markus Granlund, is on track to make his Calgary debut Monday against Arizona on a line with Derek Grant and Sean Monahan, though at this point the 2013 first-rounder remains a speculative fantasy play.
Shinkaruk was traded to the Flames on Monday in exchange for Markus Granlund. This trade results in a homecoming for the Calgary native Shinkaruk. The 21-year-old forward made his NHL debut Nov. 16 but did not play in any other contests with Vancouver after that. He notched 39 points in 45 games with AHL Utica this season. Shinkaruk will report to the Flames' AHL affiliate Stockton to begin his tenure with Calgary, Kristen Odland of Postmedia reports.
