  • Flames' Adam Werner: Heading down to AHL

    Werner was reassigned to AHL Stockton on Sunday.

    The Flames appear content to roll with Jacob Markstrom and Daniel Vladar between the pipes, necessitating Werner's demotion. The 24-year-old spent five games playing professionally in his native Sweden last season before posting a 2.55 GAA and .908 save percentage with AHL Colorado, so he appears to have quite a road ahead to making an impact at the NHL level.

  • Flames' Adam Werner: Guarding crease Monday

    Werner will be between the pipes on the road versus Vancouver on Monday, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

    Werner heads into the season at best as the team's No. 3 option in the crease and, as such, shouldn't be expected to see much in the way of starts with Calgary. Without a place in the lineup, Werner will likely be a non-factor in fantasy contests this year.

  • Flames' Adam Werner: Signs with Calgary

    Werner signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Flames on Wednesday, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

    Werner had a 2.55 GAA, a .908 save percentage and a 6-4-1 record in 11 games with AHL Colorado last year, although he spent the bulk of the season on the Avalanche's taxi squad. The Swede will join the Flames' goalie pipeline, and at 24 years old, it's possible he could compete with Daniel Vladar for the backup role behind Jacob Markstrom this year.

  • Avalanche's Adam Werner: Backing up Grubauer

    Werner becomes the top backup for Philipp Grubauer after Hunter Miska was added to the COVID-19 protocol.

    Werner was added to the roster for Sunday's game against the Golden Knights, but Miska's status was uncertain at the time. The Avalanche were barely sold on Miska as the top backup, so Werner's status may not be long-term. Grubauer has held up well while appearing in 10 of 12 games, ranking second in save percentage and GAA, but the Avs will want to get a proven reliever behind him.
