Flames' Sam Bennett: Cools off again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bennett has gone six games without a point.

Prior to his current drought, Bennett netted three goals in two games, but his offense has once again abandoned him. The 23-year-old forward remains stuck at 12 points to go with 97 hits, 78 shots on net and 36 PIM in 49 contests this season.

Flames' Sam Bennett: Tallies again in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bennett scored a goal on two shots and added three hits in Monday's 6-4 win over the Ducks.

Bennett has four tallies through seven games in February, accounting for half of his goal-scoring this season. The 23-year-old is at 12 points, 90 hits and 70 shots in 43 appearances overall.

Flames' Sam Bennett: Strikes twice in first period
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bennett scored a pair of goals and added two hits in Saturday's 8-4 loss to the Blackhawks.

Bennett kept things close with his pair of first-period tallies, but the Blackhawks ran away with the game after a four-goal second period. The 23-year-old forward took a turn at center with Derek Ryan (illness) unavailable, and Bennett showed some chemistry with wingers Milan Lucic and Dillon Dube. Bennett now has 11 points, 68 shots and 87 hits in 42 outings.

Flames' Sam Bennett: Quiet in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bennett (illness) skated 10:12 with two PIM, a hit and a plus-2 rating in Thursday's 6-0 win over the Ducks.

Bennett missed two games due to the illness. The fourth-liner remains at nine points with 65 shots and 85 hits in 41 contests this season.

Flames' Sam Bennett: Will return Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bennett (illness) will rejoin the lineup for Thursday's game against the Ducks, Derek Wills of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

Bennett's return will boot Tobias Rieder from the lineup. Even so, Bennett's absence from the power play, career-low ice time (12:47 per game) and lack of production (nine points in 40 games) all point to minimal upside from a fantasy standpoint.

Flames' Sam Bennett: Set to miss Wednesday's clash
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bennett (illness) is expected to be sidelined against the Kings on Wednesday, Derek Wills of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

Prior to coming down with an illness, Bennett registered three points in his previous six outings, along with seven shots, 13 hits and two blocks. At this point, Bennett may be hard pressed to get back over the 25-point mark for a fifth straight season considered he has just nine points so far.

Flames' Sam Bennett: Out Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bennett (illness) will not suit up for Monday's tilt in San Jose.

Bennett's absence shouldn't impact too many fantasy rosters, as the 23-year-old forward has just nine points in 40 games this season. His next chance to play will be in Los Angeles on Wednesday.

Flames' Sam Bennett: Misses practice Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bennett (illness) didn't practice Monday.

Bennett's in danger of missing Monday's game versus the Sharks, and it seems likely at this point. The 23-year-old is having a down year with just nine points (five goals, four assists) over 40 games, and Zac Rinaldo will likely draw into the lineup if Bennett can't go.

Flames' Sam Bennett: Strikes in first minute
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bennett scored a goal on two shots and dished three hits in Thursday's 3-2 loss to the Predators.

Bennett got a piece of Travis Hamonic's shot to score 33 seconds into the game. The 23-year-old forward has made minor improvements in recent games, with three points in five outings since the All-Star break. Bennett has only nine points, 65 shots and 83 hits in 39 contests overall, and he likely won't help fantasy owners much while skating in a fourth-line role.

Flames' Sam Bennett: Helpers in consecutive outings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bennett notched an assist and two hits in Wednesday's 4-3 shootout win over the Oilers.

Bennett had the lone helper on Andrew Mangiapane's first of two tallies in the second period. The assists gave Bennett eight points, 76 hits and 60 shots on goal through 36 games this season. Limited to a bottom-six role, the 23-year-old hasn't shown enough to earn fantasy relevance.

Flames' Sam Bennett: Garners helper Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bennett notched an assist and three hits in Tuesday's 5-4 shootout loss to the Blues.

Bennett snapped an eight-game point drought with the helper on Mark Jankowski's second-period tally. The winger has had two dry spells of that length this season, and he's at just seven points in 35 contests. Bennett has added 74 hits, 59 shots on goal and 28 PIM, but fantasy owners can do better than what the 23-year-old has produced so far.

Flames' Sam Bennett: First goal in almost two months
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bennett tallied a goal on four shots and dished six hits in Tuesday's 5-3 loss to the Blackhawks.

It was his first tally since Nov. 2, a span of 11 appearances that was interrupted by an upper-body injury. Bennett has just six points to go with 44 shots on goal and 56 hits in 26 games this year. The 23-year-old will likely fall short of the 27 points he had last season, and his physicality isn't enough to offset his lack of offense in fantasy circles.

Flames' Sam Bennett: Little impact in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bennett (upper body) produced two hits in 8:58 during Tuesday's 4-1 loss to the Penguins.

Bennett missed 13 games with the injury, and coach Geoff Ward appears set to ease the forward back into the lineup. He played on the fourth line Tuesday -- with just five points and 43 hits in 21 games, expect the 23-year-old to remain in a bottom-six role going forward.

Flames' Sam Bennett: Back in action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bennett (upper body) will return to the lineup for Tuesday's matchup with Pittsburgh, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

Bennett will return to a bottom-six role following his one-month absence, skating with Tobias Rieder and Michael Frolik on the Flames' fourth line. The 23-year-old has only picked up five points in 20 games this campaign, so he can be ignored in most fantasy formats.

Flames' Sam Bennett: Lands on LTIR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bennett (upper body) was placed on long-term injured reserve Wednesday, Derek Wills of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

Bennett won't travel with the team during its upcoming road trip, and he won't be eligible to return to the lineup until Dec. 9 against the Avalanche. Landing on LTIR signals he may be out even longer, as the Flames would get salary-cap relief -- he makes $2.55 million per year -- if the 23-year-old missed the rest of the season.

Flames' Sam Bennett: Now labeled week-to-week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bennett (upper body) is now considered week-to-week, Wes Gilbertson of Postmedia reports.

Bennett had already been ruled out for Tuesday's game against Colorado, but it appears he'll have to sit out beyond Tuesday as well. This injury is the latest speed bump in what has been a disappointing campaign for the fourth overall selection from the 2014 draft, as Bennett has just five points through 20 appearances.

Flames' Sam Bennett: Remains out Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bennett (upper body) will not be in action for Tuesday's clash with Colorado, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

Bennet will miss his second straight game due to his upper-body injury. Prior to getting hurt, the winger was bogged down in a six-game goal drought during which he managed a meager one assist. Despite the slump, the Ontario native continued to feature on the power play and should retake his spot once given the all-clear.

Flames' Sam Bennett: Out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bennett (upper body) will not suit up Sunday's game in Vegas.

Bennett was a late scratch prior to Sunday's contest so it's unclear how serious his injury is. The 23-year-old forward has five points in 20 games this season. An update on his status should be available before Tuesday's matchup against Colorado.

Flames' Sam Bennett: Spends time in sin bin
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bennett (foot) had four PIM and three hits in Saturday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Blues.

Bennett accounted for two of the five penalties the Flames took in the contest, although his latter misbehavior was offset by MacKenzie MacEachern's roughing minor. Bennett should have no lingering ill effects from a blocked shot in Thursday's game versus the Devils, but the third-line winger has just five points in 18 games this year.

Flames' Sam Bennett: Good to go versus Blues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bennett (foot) participated in Saturday's morning skate and is expected to play versus the Blues, Derek Wills of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

It appears Bennett won't have to miss any time after blocking a shot with his foot Thursday against the Devils. The winger has five points, 32 hits and 14 PIM through 17 appearances this season. He's expected to slot into his familiar third-line role alongside Derek Ryan and Alan Quine.
