Flames' Sam Bennett: Returns to action Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bennett (undisclosed) practiced with the Flames on Sunday, Derek Wills of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

Bennett missed Saturday's practice, but he's back in action without limitations Sunday. The 24-year-old centered a bottom-six line flanked by Derek Ryan and Joakim Nordstrom. With Elias Lindholm and Sean Monahan set as the Flames' top two centers, Bennett may have to settle for a depth role this season. The 2014 fourth overall pick registered 12 points over 52 games with the Flames last year.

Flames' Sam Bennett: No-go for practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bennett (undisclosed) has been deemed unfit to participate in Saturday's practice.

The Flames appear to be practicing caution with Bennett, who was also held out of Thursday's intrasquad scrimmage for precautionary reasons. At this point there's no reason to believe he won't be ready for Thursday's season opener versus the Jets.

Flames' Sam Bennett: Held out of scrimmage
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bennett (undisclosed) was held out of Thursday's intra-squad scrimmage for precautionary reasons.

Bennett was expected to play in a top-six role during the training camp game. Instead, the 24-year-old will watch from the sidelines. Per the Flames, Bennett can be considered day-to-day. There's little chance this affects his availability for Opening Night, where Bennett may take on a larger role with the team in 2020-21.

Flames' Sam Bennett: Chips in with power-play helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bennett picked up a power-play assist, five shots on goal and four hits in Thursday's 7-3 loss to the Stars.

Bennett had the only helper on Johnny Gaudreau's first-period marker. Through 10 postseason games, Bennett produced five goals, three assists, 32 shots and 54 hits as a force on the third line. The 24-year-old forward will look to get back to the 25-point threshold next season after missing the mark for the first time in his five-year career in 2019-20.

Flames' Sam Bennett: Three points in OT loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bennett scored two goals Sunday, one on the power play, and added a power-play assist during the Flames' 5-4 overtime loss to the Stars in Game 4.

All his scoring came in the second period as Calgary built a 3-2 lead, but a leaky defense eventually caused the team to squander it. Bennett hasn't made much regular-season impact after being the fourth overall pick in the 2014 draft, but the 24-year-old is having the run of his career this postseason, scoring five goals and seven points through eight games so far. With the series now tied 2-2, Bennett will look to stay locked in for Game 5 on Tuesday.

Flames' Sam Bennett: Tips in PPG
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bennett scored a power-play goal on five shots and added seven hits in Thursday's 5-4 loss to the Stars in Game 2.

Bennett was briefly the hero for the Flames, with his tip-in from Elias Lindholm's shot tying the game at four late in the third period. Jamie Oleksiak scored 2:09 later to put the Stars ahead for good. It's still another quality outing for Bennett, who has three goals, a helper, 34 hits and 15 shots through six postseason appearances.

Flames' Sam Bennett: Beats buzzer in first period
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bennett scored a goal, notched an assist, went plus-3 and doled out a game-high eight hits in Thursday's 4-0 win over the Jets in Game 4.

Bennett was a force to be reckoned with as the Flames clinched the series win over the Jets. His biggest moment in the contest was his goal with 0.7 seconds left in the first period to double the lead to 2-0. He continued to make his presence felt with physicality during the rest of the game. The 24-year-old forward recorded three points, nine shots and 22 hits in the four-game series.

Flames' Sam Bennett: Finds twine in Game 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bennett scored a goal on three shots, dished three hits and added two PIM in Monday's 3-2 loss to the Jets in Game 2.

Bennett's tally at 17:29 of the second period tied the game at two, but his cross-checking minor in the third right after Winnipeg retook the lead made for a listless last 10 minutes for the Flames. The 24-year-old Bennett is getting a chance at the third-line center role in the playoffs, and he's delivered nine hits and five shots in two games. However, with four PIM, he could find himself in head coach Geoff Ward's doghouse with an ill-timed penalty.

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.

February 12, 2020 02:52 PM
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.

February 11, 2020 03:36 AM
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.

February 10, 2020 01:48 PM
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.

January 29, 2020 12:44 AM
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.
