  • Flames' Justin Kirkland: Designated for waivers Saturday

    Kirkland landed on the waiver wire Saturday, Sportsnet's Chris Johnston reports.

    Considering Kirkland has yet to make his NHL debut since being selected by the Predators in the third round of the 2014 NHL Draft, it shouldn't come as a shock to see him miss out on the 23-man roster for Opening Night. The 25-year-old center has had middling success in the AHL (104 points in 267 games), so fantasy players shouldn't be banking on him having a significant impact at the NHL level this year.

  • Flames' Justin Kirkland: Inks two-way deal

    Kirkland signed a one-year, two-way contract with Calgary on Wednesday.

    Kirkland spent the entire 2020-21 campaign playing in the minors with AHL Stockton and figures to continue playing the bulk of his minutes in the minors. Still, the 25-year-old center could push to at least make his NHL debut this year.

  • Flames' Justin Kirkland: Pens one-year deal

    Kirkland secured a one-year, two-way contract with Calgary on Monday.

    Kirkland garnered six goals and 22 assists in 53 games for AHL Stockton this season, his fourth year in the minors. Selected by the Flames in the third round of the 2014 NHL Draft, the 24-year-old winger is still looking to make his NHL debut but could get that opportunity next year, though most of his games figure to be played at the minor-league level.

  • Flames' Justin Kirkland: Secures two-way deal

    Kirkland inked a one-year, two-way contract with Calgary on Tuesday.

    Kirkland put up decent numbers with AHL Milwaukee last season, nine goals and 21 assists in 75 games, but it wasn't enough for the Predators to give him a qualifying offer. The winger figures to spend another year developing in the minors, but could earn a call-up or two during the season.

  • Justin Kirkland: Will become UFA

    Kirkland did not receive a qualifying offer from Nashville ahead of Tuesday's deadline, Adam Vingan of The Athletic reports.

    Since signing an entry-level deal with the Preds back in 2016, Kirkland, 22, has yet to make his NHL debut and instead has spent all of his time at the AHL level, scoring nine goals and tallying 21 assists in 75 appearances this past season with AHL Milwaukee. Set to become an unrestricted free agency, Kirkland will now have a chance to earn an NHL spot with a new club.

  • Justin Kirkland: Agrees to entry-level contract

    Kirkland signed a three-year, entry-level contract with the Predators on Monday.

    Kirkland tallied a phenomenal 31 goals and 36 assists in 69 contests in the WHL this season for an average of just under a point per game. The third-round pick will likely join AHL Milwaukee to start the 2016-17 campaign, but if he can continue to write his name onto the scoresheet with consistency, he could make an appearance in the NHL sooner rather than later.
