Flames' Byron Froese: Headed for minors
Froese was waived by the Flames on Saturday in order to move him down to the minors, Sportsnet's Chris Johnston reports.
Froese has played in just six NHL games over the last three seasons in which he tallied one goal, two shots and eight hits while logging 8:18 of ice time per game. The 30-year-old center showed promise early in his career, including a 48-game stint with the Canadiens back in 2017-18 but hasn't been able to break into the NHL since and should be expected to spend the bulk of the year in the minors....

Flames' Byron Froese: Deposits first goal in three years
Froese scored a goal, doled out three hits and added two PIM in Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Jets.
Froese tipped in a Juuso Valimaki shot-pass at 13:34 of the second period to put the Flames ahead 2-1. The 29-year-old Froese hadn't scored since March of 2018 -- he had three goals and 11 points for the Canadiens in the 2017-18 campaign, but hadn't seen NHL ice since then prior to Saturday's game versus the Oilers. Froese has stabilized the Flames' fourth-line center spot in the absence of Derek Ryan (finger). Fantasy managers need not rush to the waiver wire to add Froese, who likely won't score enough to justify a virtual roster spot.... See More ... See Less

Flames' Byron Froese: Sent to waivers
Froese was placed on waivers Sunday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.
Froese needs to pass through waivers to be assigned to AHL Stockton or to join the Flames' taxi squad. The 29-year-old hasn't seen NHL action since 2017-18, so it's more likely he ends up spending most of the season in the minors to provide organizational forward depth.... See More ... See Less

Froese inked a one-year, two-way contract with the Flames on Monday.

The center put up decent numbers in the minors, as he notched 21 goals and 23 assists in 70 appearances. The 28-year-old could earn his way into a roster spot during training camp, but it certainly isn't a lock and figures to play at least some games with the Heat this season.... See More ... See Less

The Canadiens packaged Froese with David Schlemko to acquire Dale Weise and Christian Folin from the Flyers on Saturday, Frank Seravalli of TSN.ca reports.
The deal essentially moves around some underperforming players with hopes that a change of scenery will inspire some improvement. Froese has yet to make an appearance in the NHL this season, but he has played reasonably well with AHL Laval, notching 14 goals and 16 assists over 46 games. He will likely begin his tenure with the Flyers among the Lehigh Valley ranks.... See More ... See Less
