  • Flames' Adam Ruzicka: Gathers assist

    Ruzicka notched an assist in Saturday's 9-1 win over the Coyotes.

    Most of the Flames' offense was limited to their top players, but Ruzicka was able to chip in a helper on Matthew Tkachuk's first goal at 2:18 of the second period. Ruzicka had been a healthy scratch for the prior four games before replacing Ryan Carpenter on the fourth line Saturday. For the season, Ruzicka has 10 points, 31 shots on net, 21 hits and a plus-8 rating in 26 contests. He'll likely continue to see a part-time role.

  • Flames' Adam Ruzicka: Rejoins active roster

    Ruzicka was promoted from AHL Stockton on Monday, per CBS Sports.

    Ruzicka bounced up and down between the AHL and NHL levels with Juuso Valimaki over the last two days. He could be a bottom-line option for Tuesday's game against the Kraken but will likely be a healthy scratch.

  • Flames' Adam Ruzicka: Back to minors

    Ruzicka was demoted to AHL Stockton on Sunday, per CBS Sports.

    Ruzicka has nine points in 25 NHL games this season. He's been a healthy scratch the last two games but could be back with the big club as an injury replacement in the near future.

  • Flames' Adam Ruzicka: Promoted from minors

    Ruzicka was called up from AHL Stockton on Monday.

    Ruzicka could be pressed into service at some point during Calgary's four-game road trip after Brett Ritchie (leg) didn't travel with the team. Still, the 22-year-old Ruzicka would need to unseat Ryan Carpenter or Trevor Lewis from a spot in the lineup. Even if he does play, Ruzicka is unlikely to offer more than low-end fantasy value in a bottom-six role.

  • Flames' Adam Ruzicka: Returning to AHL Stockton

    Ruzicka was reassigned to AHL Stockton on Wednesday.

    Ruzicka was squeezed off of the Flames' roster after they traded for Calle Jarnkrok earlier Wednesday. The 22-year-old Ruzicka has been solid in a bottom-six role with nine points and 27 shots on goal in 23 games, but it'll likely take an injury to an NHL center for the Slovak to get back up to the big club this season.

  • Flames' Adam Ruzicka: Back with big club

    Ruzicka was recalled by the Flames on Tuesday.

    Ruzicka could draw into the lineup as soon as Wednesday versus New Jersey. The 22-year-old forward has picked up five goals and nine points through 23 top-level appearances this year.

  • Flames' Adam Ruzicka: Demoted to AHL

    Ruzicka was reassigned to AHL Stockton on Sunday.

  • Flames' Adam Ruzicka: Nets goal Tuesday

    Ruzicka scored a goal, logged two hits and added two PIM in Tuesday's 5-4 loss to the Capitals.

    Ruzicka's second-period tally came on a crafty pass from an off-balance Andrew Mangiapane. The 22-year-old Ruzicka has a goal and an assist in two games since he returned from a stint as a healthy scratch. The Slovak forward is up to nine points, 25 shots on net, a plus-6 rating and 16 hits through 21 contests.

  • Flames' Adam Ruzicka: Chips in with assist

    Ruzicka notched an assist in Monday's 3-1 win over the Oilers.

    Ruzicka had sat out the last four games after going four games without a point. He ended his drought by setting up Tyler Toffoli's second goal of the game midway through the second period. It's unclear if Ruzicka will have an everyday role going forward, but it's safe to say he has more scoring upside than scratched forwards Brad Richardson and Trevor Lewis. Through 20 appearances, Ruzicka is at eight points, 24 shots on net and a plus-6 rating while playing in a bottom-six role.

  • Flames' Adam Ruzicka: Scores again Tuesday

    Ruzicka scored a goal in Tuesday's 6-2 win over the Blue Jackets.

    Ruzicka gave the Flames some insurance at 6:39 of the third period, squeaking a shot under Elvis Merzlikins' left leg. It's another positive game for Ruzicka, who has found a home as the Flames' fourth-line center. He's posted six points in his last nine outings despite topping 12 minutes of ice time just twice in that stretch.

  • Flames' Adam Ruzicka: First career multi-point game

    Ruzicka scored a goal, dished an assist and went plus-3 in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Islanders.

    Ruzicka opened the scoring at 9:58 of the first period, and he also set up an Andrew Mangiapane goal in the second. This was Ruzicka's first multi-point game in his career. The Slovak is up to six points, 17 shots on net and a plus-5 rating through 14 appearances. He's earning more trust as the fourth-line center -- it seems he's won the job from veteran Brad Richardson.

  • Flames' Adam Ruzicka: Tacks on helper

    Ruzicka notched an assist, two shots on goal and two PIM in Tuesday's 4-3 win over the Stars.

    Ruzicka set up Trevor Lewis on the opening tally early in the first period. The 22-year-old Ruzicka has played well in a fourth-line role lately, logging a goal and two assists in his last five games. The Slovak has four points, 13 shots on net, six hits and a plus-2 rating in 10 contests this season, though he'll need to move up the lineup to be a reliable contributor in fantasy.

  • Flames' Adam Ruzicka: Draws assist in win

    Ruzicka notched an assist in Wednesday's 6-0 win over the Blue Jackets.

    Ruzicka won a faceoff back to Erik Gudbranson, who fired a long shot in at 6:55 of the third period. Despite the Flames putting up a franchise-best 62 shots on net in the contest, Ruzicka was the lone player on the team to fail to put a puck on goal. The 22-year-old appears to be growing in confidence, as he's logged a goal and an assist in his last two games and now has three points, 10 shots and five hits through seven outings overall.

  • Flames' Adam Ruzicka: Contributes goal in win

    Ruzicka scored a goal on four shots and went plus-2 in Monday's 7-1 win over the Blues.

    Ruzicka was on the ice with the top line briefly in the second period, and he was able to tuck home a shot off a pass from Matthew Tkachuk. The goal was Ruzicka's second of the season in his sixth appearance. It's unclear how long the 22-year-old will be able to hold a place in the lineup over veteran Brad Richardson. Fantasy managers shouldn't expect Ruzicka to see more than fourth-line minutes for now, so he's not likely to score enough to help virtual rosters.

  • Flames' Adam Ruzicka: Rises to active roster

    Ruzicka was promoted to the active roster Saturday, per CapFriendly.

    Ruzicka once again joined the active roster on game day, but he served as a healthy scratch against the Oilers. The 22-year-old has one goal in five games at the NHL level this season.
