  • Flames' Oliver Kylington: Managing shoulder injury

    Kylington played through a shoulder injury in the playoffs, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

    It's unclear how long Kylington had to carry the shoulder injury, but he missed time in April due to an upper-body injury after taking a hard hit into the boards. Steinberg adds that Kylington is not expected to need surgery, so the injury isn't likely to be a problem in 2022-23. The RFA defenseman took a big step forward in 2022-23 with 31 points, 138 shots on net, 79 blocked shots and a plus-34 rating in 73 regular-season contests.

    Kylington set up a Johnny Gaudreau tally in the second period. The assist gave Kylington three points in his last six games of the playoffs after going scoreless in the first six. The 25-year-old defenseman took a step forward to become a regular in the Flames' lineup, earning 31 points (nine goals, 22 helpers) with a plus-34 rating in 73 regular-season outings. He's set to be a restricted free agent this summer.

  • Flames' Oliver Kylington: Prevents shutout Sunday

    Kylington struck at 15:09 of the third period to spoil the Oilers' chances of shutting out the Flames. The goal was too little and too late to make a difference, but it's still the 25-year-old's first career playoff tally. He's at two points, 17 shots on net, 12 blocked shots, eight PIM and a plus-3 rating through 10 postseason contests.

  • Flames' Oliver Kylington: Offers helper Sunday

    Kylington logged an assist and went plus-2 in Sunday's 3-2 overtime win over the Stars in Game 7.

    Kylington spent a little time in the locker room during the second period, but he was able to return and finish out the contest. The defenseman's assist came on a Tyler Toffoli goal at 1:46 of the second. This was Kylington's first point in seven playoff contests, and he's added 15 shots on net, eight blocked shots, six PIM and a plus-2 rating. With Chris Tanev (undisclosed) out, Kylington and Michael Stone functioned more as the third pairing, which could diminish the 24-year-old's opportunities in the offensive zone heading into the second round.

    Kylington (upper body) is on track to play Thursday against the Golden Knights, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

  • Flames' Oliver Kylington: Still out Tuesday

    Kylington (upper body) won't play Tuesday versus the Kraken, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

    Kylington practiced Monday, but he'll need to miss at least one more game. The 24-year-old will miss his sixth straight game. Michael Stone is likely to exit the lineup once Kylington is able to play again.

  • Flames' Oliver Kylington: Practices Monday

    Kylington (upper body) joined practice Monday and could return Tuesday against Seattle, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

    Kylington skated as an extra Monday but says he's "ready to go and available." His status for Tuesday's game likely won't be determined until pregame warmups. The 24-year-old has 27 points in 64 games this season and has missed the last five contests.

  • Flames' Oliver Kylington: Not traveling with team

    Kylington (upper body) did not join the Flames for their four-game road trip, Hailey Salvian of The Athletic reports.

    Kylington was originally labeled day-to-day but the fact that he isn't with the team certainly would indicate he is facing a long-term absence. Michael Stone figures to take Kylington's spot in the lineup while Juuso Valimaki was called up from the minors to provide additional emergency depth.

  • Flames' Oliver Kylington: Considered day-to-day

    Kylington (upper body) is considered day-to-day and won't play Saturday versus St. Louis, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

    With Kylington on the shelf, look for Michael Stone to draw into the lineup against the Blues. Kylington will be reevaluated ahead of Monday's matchup with the Kings.

  • Flames' Oliver Kylington: Exits contest

    Kylington (upper body) left Thursday's game versus the Kings in the third period after going face-first into the boards, Hailey Salvian of The Athletic reports.

    Kylington didn't return to the contest after the awkward fall, though there was no information on his status after the game. The 24-year-old has 27 points in 63 contests in a top-four role this season, so he would be tough to replace if he's forced to miss time. Michael Stone would likely enter the lineup if Kylington can't play Saturday versus the Blues.

  • Flames' Oliver Kylington: Nets goal in old-school battle

    Kylington scored a goal in Saturday's 9-5 win over the Oilers.

    Kylington capitalized on a crafty set-up by Johnny Gaudreau at 3:07 of the second period. The goal ended a six-game goal drought and four-game point skid for Kylington. The 24-year-old defenseman is up to 27 points, 121 shots on net, a plus-26 rating and 65 blocked shots in 62 outings this season.

  • Flames' Oliver Kylington: Earns helper in return

    Kylington logged an assist and fired three shots on goal in Wednesday's 6-3 win over the Devils.

    Kylington was eased back into action, seeing just 15:11 of ice after missing the last two games with a lower-body injury. It may take him a few contests to get back up to speed, and the Flames won't need to pressure him too much. The 24-year-old has 26 points, 109 shots on net, 63 blocked shots and a plus-26 rating in a career year through 57 contests, though his scoring contributions have often come in bunches.

  • Flames' Oliver Kylington: Playing Wednesday

    Kylington (lower body) will be in action versus the Devils on Wednesday, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

    After missing the last two games due to his lower-body issue, Kylington will retake his spot on the blue line. After a strong start to the year, the 24-year-old Swede has been limited to just one point in his last 12 contests despite averaging 1:13 of ice time with the man advantage over the stretch. Still, Kylington has already set career highs in games (56), goals (seven), assists (18) and shots (106) and should continue to provide solid top-half fantasy value if he can break out of his current slump.

  • Flames' Oliver Kylington: Unavailable Sunday

    Kylington (lower body) will not play Sunday against Colorado, per the NHL's media site.

    Kylington will miss his second straight game Sunday. The 24-year-old blueliner is in the middle of a breakout year, tallying 25 points with a plus-26 rating through 56 games. His next chance to play will be Wednesday against the Devils.

  • Flames' Oliver Kylington: Set to miss Saturday's game

    Kylington (lower body) isn't in the lineup for Saturday's game versus the Red Wings.

    The Flames have enjoyed good health this season, with this being Kylington's first missed game since he was made a healthy scratch Oct. 18. With the 24-year-old out of the lineup, Nikita Zadorov will likely move up to the second pairing while Michael Stone will enter the lineup. Kylington could also be at risk of missing Sunday's game versus the Avalanche given the tight turnaround and travel for the second half of a back-to-back.

  • Flames' Oliver Kylington: Ends point drought with goal

    Kylington scored a goal on four shots and went minus-3 in Tuesday's 5-4 loss to the Capitals.

    It wasn't a banner night for Kylington or his defense partner Chris Tanev, but the former at least got a goal for his troubles. The tally ended Kylington's 10-game point drought. The 24-year-old defenseman has 25 points, 106 shots on net, 59 blocked shots and a plus-24 rating in 55 contests overall. His scoring contribution have often been in bunches this season, so fantasy managers will have to hope this sparks another surge.

  • Flames' Oliver Kylington: Good to go

    Coach Daryl Sutter told reporters that Kylington (upper body) was "fine" following Saturday's win over Minnesota, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

    Kylington appeared to suffer an upper-body injury when he awkwardly crashed into the boards in the third period of Saturday's contest, but it evidently looked worse than it actually was. He should be good to go for Tuesday's rematch with the Wild.
