Lazar was sent down to AHL Stockton prior to Thursday's 5-1 win over the Senators. Lazar was up with the Flames as an emergency recall while Sam Bennett and Sean Monahan were out of the lineup. Bennett did pick up an upper-body injury in Thursday's contest, but it's unclear if that will lead to Lazar shuttling back to Calgary. Alan Quine, a regular call-up from March 10, remains with the team as an extra forward. Lazar managed one hit and two shots in two games during this stint.
Lazar was recalled from AHL Stockton on Monday. Lazar is currently in his fifth pro season, and has not played a game at the NHL level this campaign. The 24-year-old currently has 37 points in 49 AHL games, and has 51 points in his NHL career. With Sean Monahan (illness) and Sam Bennett (upper body) banged up, Lazar could enter the lineup for Tuesday's game against Columbus.
Lazar was assigned to AHL Stockton on Saturday. Lazar has not appeared at the NHL level this season, frequently serving as a healthy scratch. With the Heat, he has 16 goals and 20 assists in 46 games. He will get an opportunity for playing time at the lower level, with the Flames apparently satisfied with their current forward group.
Lazar has not made an appearance for the Flames this year. He was summoned by the Flames on Feb. 15, but hasn't drawn into the lineup in their eight games since the recall. Lazar's done well at AHL Stockton with 36 points in 46 games in the lower league, but he's still waiting for another chance to make an impact at the NHL level.
The Flames recalled Lazar from AHL Stockton on Friday. Lazar has been pretty productive in the minors this season, notching 16 goals and 36 points in 46 appearances. With James Neal (lower body) sidelined, Lazar will likely get an opportunity to draw into the big club's lineup immediately against the Penguins on Saturday. The 2013 first-round pick will try to produce a standout performance and make a case for remaining with the Flames down the stretch.
