  • 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.
