      Flames' Joni Ortio: Waived by Calgary

      Ortio has been waived by Calgary, Elliotte Friedman of HNIC reports. Ortio made four October appearances with the Flames and lost each decision. Karri Ramo has been the one getting time between the pipes this month, while fellow goalie Jonas Hiller remains out with a hip injury. In terms of what is next for Ortio, it's possible that he could be sent to the team's minor-league affiliate if he ends up clearing waivers.

      Flames' Joni Ortio: Allows six goals in loss

      Ortio gave up six goals on 31 shots in Friday's loss to the Canadiens. Not a good night for Ortio, who has given up nine goals in his last three appearances. With the loss, the 24-year-old backup falls to 0-2-1 on the season with a .868 save percentage. With Jonas Hiller injured, Ortio could see some more action, but after that disastrous outing Friday, it's Karri Ramo who will get the call Saturday against the Oilers.

      Flames' Joni Ortio: Starting Friday

      Ortio will start in goal Friday against Montreal, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 reports. After relieving the injured Jonas Hiller in the third period of Friday's game, Ortio will make is second start of the season as Hiller remains day-to-day. Ortio has been serviceable in his three appearances this season, allowing 2.96 goals per game and stopping pucks at a rate of .911 percent. While those numbers certainly do not jump off of the page, Ortio will continue to start over fellow Finn Karri Ramo, who was just waived and recalled by Calgary this month, in Jonas Hiller's absence.

      Flames' Joni Ortio: To start in Monday's game

      Ortio will be in net Monday against the IslandersPat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 reports. Karri Ramo and Jonas Hiller have both been terrible thus far, so this is a solid chance for Ortio to make an impression. That being said, Calgary's offense hasn't given its goalies much help this season either, so it may be an uphill battle for the young Finn.

      Flames' Joni Ortio: Moves into backup role

      With Karri Ramo having been placed on waivers Wednesday, Ortio is now the backup to Jonas Hiller in Calgary. The Flames were carrying all three of Hiller, Ramo and Ortio, waiting for one of them to make their decision easier, and it was Ramo who did that by allowing 11 goals in his first three starts. That said, Ortio didn't exactly blow the doors off last year at either the NHL level (.908 save percentage) or the AHL level (.912). Where Ramo was in a timeshare with upside, Ortio can definitively be labeled the backup unless he truly excels once he gets into game action.

    • Flames' Ortio Lit Up In Rare Start

      News: Joni Ortio was awful Saturday, allowing five goals on just 22 shots in a 5-1 loss to Winnipeg.
      Analysis: With the Flames having locked up a playoff spot and resting a bunch of their regulars, coach Bob Harley rolled Joni Ortio out there for his sixth appearance of the season. It's unclear whether the Flames will need Ortio to dress behind starter Jonas Hiller in Round 1 of the playoffs against Vancouver, as Karri Ramo is still reportedly dealing with a lower-body injury.
