Jiri Hudler (illness) returned from a two-game absence and registered an assist in Friday's 2-1 overtime loss against the Coyotes.
Hudler has been one of the steadier scorers in Calgary this season, with 14 points in 21 games. He is unlikely to hit 70 points again this season, but 50-60 should certainly be attainable.
Mark Giordano lit the lamp Friday but the Calgary 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.
Tyson Chandler (hamstring) is doubtful to play Sunday in Toronto, Paul Coro of AZCentral.com reports.
Chandler exited the Phoenix Suns ' game Friday early in the first quarter due to a hamstring pull, and was unable to return. Phoenix will likely play it safe with their veteran center in order to avoid a lingering injury. If Chandler is unable to go Sunday, as expected, his next opportunity to play will be Tuesday in Brooklyn. The big man is putting up 7.8 points and 3.1 rebounds in 18 minutes per game on the year.
Petrovic suffered the injury on Oct. 31 against the Capitals when blocking a shot from Alexander Ovechkin. He was held out of the third period of that contest with the ding, but wasn't forced to miss any further action, suiting up for each of the team's next 11 games. The ailment has apparently worsened of late, so the 23-year-old blueliner will be out for at least one week in order to fully recover from the injury. Recently recalled Dylan Olsen is expected to draw into the
Martin Jones will get the starting nod Saturday evening versus the Flames, Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports.
Jones has a 2.14 GAA and .925 save percentage through 18 starts this season, so he's playing at a high level overall. He'll stop pucks from a Calgary team that has scored the fewest goals (54) of any team in the Western Conference, making Jones an attractive fantasy play, especially if you need help in daily formats.
