  • Flames' Michael Stone: Enters COVID-19 protocols

    Stone didn't practice Tuesday due to the NHL's COVID-19 protocols.

    The Flames won't play their first game of the season until Saturday against the Oilers, so Stone could be cleared in time for that contest. Either way, the 31-year-old vet is currently one of the odd men out in terms of Calgary's blue-line corps, so he'll likely sit as a healthy scratch more often than not in 2021-22.

  • Flames' Michael Stone: Pens one-year pact

    Stone secured a one-year, $750,000 deal with Calgary on Friday.

    Stone played in just 21 games for the club last season in which he recorded two goals, two assists and 41 shots. With the addition of Erik Gudbranson on the blue line as well, Stone's chances of getting into the lineup won't be any easier to come by.

  • Flames' Michael Stone: Registers assist Sunday

    Stone notched an assist, three blocked shots and two hits in Sunday's 6-5 overtime win over the Canucks.

    Stone helped out on a Milan Lucic tally in the second period to give the Flames a 2-0 lead. The 30-year-old Stone has mostly seen bottom-pairing minutes when he's in the lineup. He's up to four points, 37 shots on net, 26 blocked shots, 23 hits and a minus-2 rating through 19 contests.

  • Flames' Michael Stone: Tallies in Sunday's win

    Stone scored a goal on three shots in Sunday's 6-1 win over the Senators.

    Stone's tally at 10:05 of the second period chased Senators goalie Anton Forsberg from the game. The 30-year-old Stone has found a more consistent role under head coach Darryl Sutter, playing in the Flames' last 17 games after spending the bulk of the first half of the season on the taxi squad. The veteran defenseman has three points, 34 shots on net, 21 hits and 22 blocked shots this year.

  • Flames' Michael Stone: Adds helper

    Stone produced an assist and two shots on goal in Monday's 4-2 loss to the Senators.

    Stone had a shot attempt that was tipped in by Milan Lucic in the third period. The 30-year-old Stone has two points, 11 hits, 13 blocked shots and 19 shots on net through 10 appearances this year. His third-pairing role will likely keep him off the fantasy radar.

  • Flames' Michael Stone: Lights lamp Friday

    Stone scored a goal on two shots in Friday's 3-2 loss to the Oilers.

    In just his third appearance of the season, Stone got on the scoresheet with a tally at 12:23 of the first period. Head coach Darryl Sutter hasn't locked onto a third pairing, giving Stone a chance to audition for that role. He worked with youngster Juuso Valimaki in Friday's contest. Stone has supplied seven shots on net and five blocked shots in his three games this year.

  • Flames' Michael Stone: Promoted to NHL

    Stone was added to the active roster Friday, CapFriendly reports.

    Stone was a healthy scratch for Friday's tilt with Winnipeg. The 30-year-old blueliner has yet to suit up for an NHL game this season.

  • Flames' Michael Stone: Rejoins taxi squad

    Stone was promoted to the taxi squad Thursday, per CapFriendly.

    Stone will likely serve as depth with the taxi squad, giving the Flames another right-shot option on the blue line. He has not seen NHL action this year.

  • Flames' Michael Stone: Heads to minor-league affiliate

    Stone was sent down to AHL Stockton on Wednesday.

    Stone has spent most of the season on the Flames' taxi squad. This move allows him to get some playing time with the minor-league affiliate. In a corresponding move, Alex Petrovic was promoted to the taxi squad.

  • Flames' Michael Stone: Promoted to taxi squad

    Stone joined the Flames' taxi squad Saturday, per CapFriendly.

    With AHL Stockton's season set to start Sunday, Stone may replace Connor Mackey permanently on the taxi squad. Stone, 30, is unlikely to see much playing time at the NHL level this year, but he's experienced enough to serve in a depth role.

  • Flames' Michael Stone: Heads to AHL affilaite

    Stone was assigned to AHL Stockton on Wednesday.

    Stone has been on Calgary's taxi squad since the start of the season, but he has yet to crack the Flames' lineup, so this move doesn't come as a surprise. Nonetheless, the veteran blueliner will likely return to the taxi squad sooner rather than later.

  • Michael Stone: Inks deal, then waived

    Stone signed a one-year, $700,000 contract with the Flames on Monday and was subsequently placed on waivers, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 reports.

    Stone will give the team extra depth on the blue line, but the Flames are waiving him with the purpose of assigning the veteran defenseman to the taxi squad, as Stone won't crack the team's top six when everyone's healthy on the back end.

  • Michael Stone: Released from tryout

    Stone has been released from his professional tryout offer with the Flames, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

    Stone evidently failed to impress enough during camp to earn a contract, so he'll once again hit the open market in hopes of catching on with a new club, likely on a two-way deal. The 30-year-old blueliner picked up seven points while posting a minus-5 rating in 33 games with Calgary last campaign.

  • Flames' Michael Stone: Secures PTO with Flames

    Stone signed a professional tryout contract with the Flames on Sunday, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

    If training camp goes well, Stone likely will receive an actual contract with the Flames before the season opener. The 30-year-old blueliner played 33 games with the team last season, posting two goals, five assists and a minus-5 rating.

  • Flames' Michael Stone: Produces helper Tuesday

    Stone recorded an assist, four hits and two shots on goal in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Bruins.

    Mark Giordano (hamstring) wasn't able to return Tuesday, which allowed Stone to stay in the lineup. He picked up his third assist in the last six games. The 29-year-old has seven points, 52 hits, 57 shots and 54 blocked shots through 33 appearances. When Giordano returns, expect Stone to compete with Derek Forbort for third-pairing minutes -- it's likely Stone will get the short end of that timeshare down the stretch.

  • Flames' Michael Stone: Snags assist

    Stone registered an assist and two hits in Monday's 6-4 win over the Ducks.

    Stone helped out on Sam Bennett's game-tying tally at 5:05 of the third period. Through 30 games, Stone has six points, 50 shots on goal, 45 hits and 51 blocked shots this season. The 29-year-old will likely continue to see regular playing time with Mark Giordano (hamstring) and Travis Hamonic (upper body) unavailable, but Stone probably won't add enough to interest fantasy owners.

  • Flames' Michael Stone: Grabs helper Thursday

    Stone recorded an assist, four PIM and a plus-2 rating in Thursday's 6-0 win over the Ducks.

    Stone had a shot that John Gibson couldn't corral before Elias Lindholm knocked in the rebound for the Flames' opening goal. It was Stone's first point since he scored a goal in a win over the Wild on Jan. 5. The 29-year-old blueliner has five points, 49 blocked shots and 49 shots on net in 28 appearances.

  • Flames' Michael Stone: Seeing regular playing time

    Stone has played in the Flames' last five games.

    In that time, he's generated 11 shots on goal, eight hits, 12 blocked shots and a plus-1 rating, but he hasn't registered a point. Stone's opportunity came about with Mark Giordano (hamstring) and Travis Hamonic (upper body) both on the shelf. It's unlikely Stone will produce much offense, but he has solid non-scoring numbers. He's at four points, 47 blocks, 41 hits and 46 shots through 27 contests this season.

  • Flames' Michael Stone: Mostly seen in press box

    Stone has been a healthy scratch for seven straight games.

    Stone continues to be on the outside looking in as Oliver Kylington has typically occupied the sixth defenseman role this season. Stone has four points, 35 shots on goal, 35 blocked shots and 33 hits in 22 contests, but he's not worth a look in fantasy given his limited role.
