Top Erik Gudbranson News

  • Flames' Erik Gudbranson: Nabs first postseason point

    Gudbranson picked up an assist and two shots on goal in Friday's 5-3 loss to the Oilers in Game 2.

    Gudbranson had a shot in the first period that led to a rebound goal for Brett Ritchie. It was Gudbranson's first assist in nine postseason outings this year, and just the second playoff point of his career -- his last was a goal with the Penguins in 2018-19. The defenseman has added 22 shots, 14 hits, eight blocked shots and a plus-1 rating in a third-pairing role during these playoffs, but he's not expected to be much of a factor on offense.

  • Flames' Erik Gudbranson: Adds assist Saturday

    Gudbranson logged an assist and two shots on goal in Saturday's 6-4 loss to the Blues.

    Gudbranson has a goal and an assist in his last two contests. That's not as unusual as it's been in previous years for the hard-hitting defenseman, who is up to a career-high 17 points in 68 games. He's added 111 shots on net, 129 hits, 79 blocked shots and a plus-15 rating. Michael Stone slotted into a second-pairing role Saturday with Oliver Kylington (upper body) out, so it doesn't appear Gudbranson will move off of the third pairing.

    Gudbranson scored a goal on two shots and added two hits in Thursday's 3-2 shootout loss to the Kings.

The 30-year-old defenseman has enjoyed a career year in his first campaign with the Flames. He's up to six goals, 16 points, 109 shots on net, 129 hits, 61 PIM and a plus-15 rating through 67 contests. He saw a bigger role toward the end of the game after Oliver Kylington (upper body) had an awkward fall into the boards, so Gudbranson could see increased usage Saturday versus the Blues, as well.

  • Flames' Erik Gudbranson: Enters COVID-19 protocols

    Gudbranson is one of 16 Flames players currently in the league's COVID-19 protocols after being added Monday.
