Top Dennis Gilbert News

  • Flames' Dennis Gilbert: Stuck in press box

    Gilbert has played just three times in the Flames' last 13 games.

    Gilbert was a regular on the third pairing before suffering a concussion in January. He played three of four games after getting cleared to return, but he's been a scratch for all of February with waiver claim Brayden Pachal and Oliver Kylington (personal) comprising the third pairing. Gilbert has seven points, 53 hits, 47 blocked shots and a minus-5 rating through 31 appearances. If the Flames trade Chris Tanev and Noah Hanifin, there may be room for Gilbert and fellow scratch Jordan Oesterle in the lineup down the stretch.

  • Flames' Dennis Gilbert: Returns from injury

    Gilbert returned to action on Saturday night's 3-1 loss to Edmonton.

  • Flames' Dennis Gilbert: Returning Saturday

    Gilbert (concussion) will be activated from injured reserve ahead of his expected return to action versus Edmonton on Saturday.

    Gilbert, who missed seven games, is slated to play alongside Jordan Oesterle on the Flames' third pairing. Gilbert has one goal, six assists, 44 hits and 43 blocked shots in 28 contests this season. He is expected to replace Nick DeSimone on the blue line Saturday.

  • Flames' Dennis Gilbert: Placed on injured reserve

    Gilbert (concussion) was put on injured reserve Wednesday, per Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan.

    If the move is retroactive to Jan. 4, which is when Gilbert last played, then he can be activated whenever he's healthy. However, it seems unlikely Calgary would put Gilbert on IR unless he was expected to miss at least the next game, which will take place Thursday against Toronto. The 27-year-old defenseman has a goal, seven points, 44 hits and 43 blocks in 28 outings in 2023-24. Gilbert will likely serve on the third pairing once he's recovered.

  • Flames' Dennis Gilbert: Not playing against Arizona

    Gilbert (concussion) won't be in the lineup Tuesday against Arizona, per Derek Wills of Sportsnet 960 The Fan.

    Gilbert will miss his sixth straight contest. He has provided seven points, 22 shots on goal, 43 blocked shots and 44 hits in 28 games this season. With Gilbert still sidelined, Jordan Oesterle will play in Tuesday's matchup.

  • Flames' Dennis Gilbert: In concussion protocol

    Gilbert, who was previously listed as having an upper-body injury, has been in the concussion protocol. He's making progress and will travel with the Flames for their games in Arizona on Thursday and Vegas on Saturday, but the Calgary defenseman isn't expected to participate in either contest, per Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan.

    Gilbert has a goal, seven points, 16 PIM, 44 hits and 43 blocks in 28 contests with the Flames in 2023-24. He was last in the lineup Thursday. With Gilbert expected to miss more time, Yan Kuznetsov is projected to remain in the lineup.

  • Flames' Dennis Gilbert: Unavailable Tuesday

    Gilbert (upper body) is not expected to play Tuesday against Ottawa, per Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan.

    Gilbert will miss his third consecutive contest. He has accounted for seven points, 22 shots on goal, 43 blocked shots and 44 hits in 28 games this season. Yan Kuznetsov will suit up in Tuesday's contest instead.

  • Flames' Dennis Gilbert: Not playing Sunday

    Gilbert (upper body) won't play Sunday against Chicago, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

    Gilbert will miss his second straight contest. He has one goal, seven points, 22 shots on goal, 43 blocked shots and 44 hits in 28 games this season. Gilbert will be replaced in the lineup by Jordan Oesterle again.

  • Flames' Dennis Gilbert: Won't play Saturday

    Gilbert (upper body) won't play Saturday against Philadelphia, per Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan.

    Gilbert, who was injured late in Thursday's 6-3 win over Nashville, will be replaced in the lineup by Jordan Oesterle. The 27-year-old Gilbert has seven points, 22 shots on goal, 43 blocked shots and 44 hits in 28 games this season.

  • Flames' Dennis Gilbert: Hurt late in contest

    Gilbert (upper body) needed help getting off the ice after his head hit the ice following a slew-foot from Nashville's Philip Tomasino in Thursday's game, Wes Gilbertson of the Calgary Sun reports.

    Gilbert was hurt late in the third period, so a clear update on his status is unlikely Thursday. The Flames' next game is Saturday versus the Flyers. Jordan Oesterle would likely enter the lineup if Gilbert is held out, either for concussion protocol or any other reason.

  • Flames' Dennis Gilbert: One of each in win

    Gilbert scored a goal on three shots, added an assist and blocked two shots in Sunday's 4-3 win over the Flyers.

    Gilbert helped out on Mikael Backlund's game-tying goal in the second period before scoring the go-ahead marker in the third. The goal was Gilbert's first since Feb. 11. He received an even-strength promotion to a pairing with Rasmus Andersson for this game, but that's unlikely to have a substantial impact on Gilbert's offense. He's at a career-high seven points with 21 shots on net, 41 hits, 42 blocked shots, 16 PIM and a minus-2 rating through 26 appearances.

  • Flames' Dennis Gilbert: Chips in with assist

    Gilbert managed an assist and four blocked shots in Monday's 3-1 win over the Panthers.

    Gilbert has three points over the last seven games. Even with Chris Tanev back from injury, Gilbert stuck in the lineup on the third pairing, while Jordan Oesterle was the scratch on defense Monday. Gilbert has produced five helpers, 16 shots on net, 37 hits, 33 blocked shots, 14 PIM and a minus-3 rating over 22 outings this season. He is expected to continue in a third-pairing role, though he's far from a guarantee to play every game.

  • Flames' Dennis Gilbert: Steps up Monday

    Gilbert logged two assists, four hits, four blocked shots, two shots on goal and a plus-2 rating in Monday's 6-5 loss to the Avalanche.

    With Chris Tanev (undisclosed) getting hurt on his first shift, Gilbert stepped into a top-four role with 20:26 of ice time. The result was Gilbert's best individual performance of the season despite the Flames' third-period collapse. The 27-year-old doubled his point total to four assists through 18 appearances. He's added 14 shots on net, 31 hits, 24 blocked shots, nine PIM and a minus-4 rating, and he could be in line for a larger role if Tanev misses time.

  • Flames' Dennis Gilbert: Snags assist

    Gilbert notched an assist and blocked two shots in Thursday's 4-3 overtime win over the Stars.

    Gilbert earned his second helper of the year, snapping a 10-game point drought that also saw him sit out eight contests as a healthy scratch. The 27-year-old could be in line for a short-term bump in playing time after the Flames dealt Nikita Zadorov to the Canucks prior to Thursday's game. Gilbert has added 11 shots on net, 25 hits, 17 blocked shots, nine PIM and a minus-2 rating over 14 appearances. In the long run, Ilya Solovyov or Jeremie Poirier (arm) could bump players like Gilbert and Jordan Oesterle out of the lineup.

  • Flames' Dennis Gilbert: Gets back in lineup

    Gilbert has played in the Flames' last three games after sitting out eight straight contests as a healthy scratch.

    When Jordan Oesterle was waived and Rasmus Andersson was reinstarted from his suspension, Gilbert lost his spot to Nick DeSimone. Over his last three games, Gilbert has three shots on net, seven hits, four blocked shots and five PIM, but he's also taken a minus-2 rating. The 27-year-old is unlikely to see more than a third-pairing role, and with just one assist through 12 outings, he doesn't generate enough offense for much fantasy consideration.

  • Flames' Dennis Gilbert: Produces helper in hometown

    Gilbert recorded an assist, two hits and a plus-2 rating in Thursday's 4-3 win over the Sabres.

    Gilbert, a Buffalo native, used his physicality to win a puck battle before passing to Matthew Coronato, who set up Blake Coleman's third-period tally. The 26-year-old Gilbert has played in three of the Flames' four games this year, putting him ahead of Jordan Oesterle on the depth chart. Gilbert has added one shot on goal, five hits and a plus-1 rating in a limited third-pairing role.

  • Flames' Dennis Gilbert: Injured Sunday

    Gilbert (undisclosed) is "okay" after leaving Sunday's preseason game against the Canucks, Wes Gilbertson of the Calgary Sun reports.

    Coach Ryan Huska said that Gilbert won't play Monday against the Kraken and could miss a few days, but the defenseman seemingly avoided any significant damage. Gilbert dressed in just 23 NHL games last year and is competing for a depth role with the Flames heading into the 2023-24 campaign.

  • Flames' Dennis Gilbert: Stuck in press box

    Gilbert hasn't played since the March 3 trade deadline.

    Gilbert was surpassed by Troy Stecher on the depth chart in the deal that sent Connor Mackey and Brett Ritchie to Arizona. Despite the Flames' uneven performance over the last three weeks, Gilbert hasn't gotten a chance to play. He has four points, 41 hits, 27 PIM and 20 blocked shots through 18 contests and wouldn't see much more than a third-pairing assignment if he was able to get back in the lineup.

  • Flames' Dennis Gilbert: Assist and fight in loss

    Gilbert logged an assist and five PIM in Monday's 4-3 loss to the Flyers.

    Gilbert fought Nick Seeler after the Flyers' defenseman doled out a heavy hit early in the game. In the second period, Gilbert set up Mikael Backlund's tally. With Michael Stone (lower body) potentially out long-term, Gilbert could be a regular fill-in on the third pairing for a while -- if the Flames don't opt to add at the trade deadline. Gilbert has a career-best four points, 25 PIM, 23 hits, 12 blocked shots, eight shots on net and a plus-1 rating through 13 appearances this season.

  • Flames' Dennis Gilbert: Nets first goal in hometown

    Gilbert had a goal and an assist in Saturday's 7-2 win over the Sabres in Buffalo.

    Gilbert stepped into a drop pass by Dillon Dube from above the left circle at 4:40 of the second period. The goal -- his first this season (10 games) -- stood as the winner. It was a game to remember for Gilbert, who had close to 100 family and friends in the arena to honor his first NHL game in his hometown. Overall, he skated 11:15 and had one shot, one hit and one block. Gilbert's only other goal came with Chicago in 2019-20.
