Zagidulin was added to the taxi squad Monday, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports. The 25-year-old netminder made his NHL debut in February, allowing two goals on 11 shots in relief. The Flames traded David Rittich to Toronto on Sunday, so Zagidulin will be the No. 3 goaltender and spend most of his time on the taxi squad. He owns a .911 save percentage and 2.86 GAA in six AHL games this season.
Zagidulin was sent down to AHL Stockton on Thursday, per CapFriendly. In a corresponding move, the Flames promoted Louis Domingue to the taxi squad. Expect Zagidulin to split time with Tyler Parsons with AHL Stockton going forward.
Zagidulin was promoted to the taxi squad Wednesday. Zagidulin will get some time with the big club, while Louis Domingue moves to AHL Stockton in a corresponding move. It's unlikely Zagidulin will be needed for NHL ice time.
Zagidulin was sent down to AHL Stockton on Thursday. Zagidulin made his NHL debut while with the parent club, stopping nine of 11 shots in a relief appearance versus the Senators. The Russian netminder should take on a workhorse role with the Heat, but he's probably not going to return to the Flames' active roster unless Jacob Markstrom (upper body) or David Rittich suffer an injury. In a corresponding move, Markstrom was activated from injured reserve Thursday.
Zagidulin stopped nine of 11 shots in Thursday's 6-1 loss to the Senators. Zagidulin relieved David Rittich just over seven minutes into the second period with the Flames already trailing 4-1. He allowed a pair of goals by Ottawa's Colin White in the second period, the first of which he'd likely want to have back. White released a soft shot at the bottom of the circle -- his follow through was partially impeded by the stick of Noah Hanifin -- but the puck still somehow snuck past Zagidulin. It was the first NHL appearance for the 25-year-old netminder, who was elevated from the taxi squad earlier in the week.
