Sieloff was acquired from Calgary on Monday by the Senators in exchange for Alex Chiasson. Sieloff scored a goal in his only NHL game this past season, as he spent the bulk of the campaign in the AHL. Originally draft in the second round of the 2012 NHL Draft, the blueliner managed 11 points this year. With Chiasson a possibility to leave via free agency, Sieloff was apparently the best that Ottawa could get in return.
The Flames have assigned Sieloff to AHL Stockton. In his NHL debut in Saturday's 2-1 triumph over Minnesota, Sieloff scored his first NHL goal, which turned out to the game-winner. In 48 AHL games this season, Sieloff has recorded just two goals and 11 points, with the the 21-year-old protecting as a stay-at-home type blueliner for the big club down the road.
Sieloff scored the go-ahead goal in his NHL debut Saturday against the Wild. It came on a bad bounce -- he chipped the puck toward the net and it ricocheted over Darcy Keumper's glove and into the net. But that doesn't matter -- Sieloff's story of his first goal will become folklore in a few short years. He's a tough, stay-at-home type, so he'll be more valuable on the ice than in the fantasy.
Sieloff was recalled from AHL Adirondack on Friday The 21-year-old blueliner hasn't had much of an offensive impact with the minor league club, collecting just five points over 48 games with the club. Sieloff could make his NHL debut Saturday due to a multitude of Flames defensive injuries, but that will be determined on game day. Either way, he shouldn't have much of a fantasy impact.
