      Flames' Mark Giordano: Tallies power-play market Friday

      Giordano lit the lamp Friday but the Flames fell to the Coyotes 2-1 in overtime. Giordano snapped a nine-game scoreless streak with the goal. The normally steady Giordano has one multi-point game, and has only scored four points in the other 22 contests. It's difficult to figure why he and the rest of the Flames are struggling so much this season, but Giordano needs to turn things around if he's going to be a fantasy start for the rest of the season.

      Flames' Mark Giordano: Picks up goal in loss

      Giordano scored his fourth of the year in a 6-3 loss to Colorado on Tuesday. Giordano is a little behind his usual 40-plus point pace from the last few seasons, but still is lined up for 35-40 points. Calgary is also a baffling 3-9-1 this season, and if the defense can turn things around, Giordano's numbers may go up a bit.

      Flames' Mark Giordano: Room for improvement

      Giordano has started the Flames' season off with a minus-5 rating and has missed all 11 of his shots. Giordano has had a slow start for Calgary this season despite seeing about 24 minutes of ice time each game. However, since the 32-year-old led all defenseman in scoring and recorded 37 assists during the 2014-15 season, he has potential to be productive in the games ahead.

    • Flames' Giordano Signs Six-Year Deal

      News: Mark Giordano (biceps) signed a six-year, $40.5 million contract extension with the Flames on Tuesday, reports.
      Analysis: Mark Giordano, an All-Star last season, led all defensemen in scoring (11 goals, 37 assists) through 61 games before a biceps injury ended his 2014-15 campaign in late February. The 31-year-old is expected to be at full strength when the start of the upcoming season rolls around, and he projects as one of the top fantasy defensemen in most formats.
    • Extension On Tap For Flames' Giordano

      News: Flames GM Brad Treliving said Tuesday that signing Mark Giordano (biceps) to a contract extension is the organization's "No. 1 priority," Roger Millions of Sportsnet reports.
      Analysis: Mark Giordano remains under contract through the end of the 2015-16 season, but after the blueliner was the runaway favorite for the Norris Trophy prior to tearing his biceps in late February, the Flames obviously want to lock him up long term before he hits the open market. There was some hope that Giordano might have been able to return during the Flames' second-round series loss to the Ducks, but the 31-year-old said that the Western Conference Finals was considered the more realistic target. In any event, Giordano should be healthy by the time training camp rolls around, making him a candidate to be among the first defensemen selected in fantasy drafts next season.
    • Flames' Giordano Likely Out For Week

      News: Mark Giordano (biceps) is unlikely to be available this week, the Calgary Herald reports.
      Analysis: Mark Giordano can seemingly be ruled out for Tuesday's Game 3 and Friday's Game 4, but he could perhaps return later in the series, if his teammates are able to extend it past four or five games.
    • Flames' Giordano (Biceps) Participates In Practice

      News: Mark Giordano (biceps) was able to fully participate in the Flames' practice on Saturday.
      Analysis: It still isn't clear when Mark Giordano might be able to return to Calgary's lineup. However, participating fully in practice is certainly a step in the right direction. He may be able to suit up for the Flames at some point during their Round 2 series with the Ducks.
    • Flames' Giordano Resumes Skating

      News: Mark Giordano (biceps) recently resumed skating again, Lisa Dillman of the Los Angeles Times reports.
      Analysis: Other than suggesting that Mark Giordano hasn't been ruled out from playing during the postseason, the Flames haven't offered any indication about when specifically they might expect the blueliner to play. The fact that Giordano's back on the ice suggests that there's a possibility he could be available later in the second-round series against the Ducks, though the Flames will undoubtedly need him to show increased involvement in practices before talk of a return gains momentum. At this time, the odds are probably more favorable that Giordano wouldn't be available until the Western Conference Finals.
    • Flames' Giordano Remains Sidelined

      News: Mark Giordano -- who suffered a torn biceps muscle on Feb. 25 -- is progressing, but there is no timetable for his return to action.
      Analysis: Mark Giordano has been able to hit the ice with his teammates and handle the puck and shoot some of late, but at this stage, per coach Bob Hartley, the Flames' captain "is not close" to a return. Calgary currently holds a 3-1 lead over Vancouver in the opening round of the playoffs.
    • Flames' Giordano Could Reurn Late In Postseason

      News: Mark Giordano (biceps) skated on his own Monday, and hasn't ruled out a return later in the postseason, Flames play-by-play announcer Derek Willis reports.
      Analysis: Mark Giordano remains a ways away from a return to the ice, but added hope of a return yet this season should the Flames advance further in the playoffs. He would need to be cleared by doctors before making that return, and admitted there's no guarantee that will happen, but the captain provided some fuel for the Flames on Monday with his comments. It's unclear how far the team would need to advance to acquire his services, but that will likely be played by ear moving forward.
