The Flames promoted Kylington from the taxi squad Saturday.
Kylington is eligible to play in Saturday's game against the Canucks now. The 23-year-old geared up in 48 games for the Flames last season, averaging 13:42 of ice time per game and recording seven points.
Kylington was listed on waivers Monday, Hailey Salvian of The Athletic reports.
Kylington made his first practice appearances with the Flames over the weekend after dealing with immigration issues. The late arrival to training camp likely didn't help the 23-year-old's chances of winning a roster spot. His placement on waivers likely means he'll begin the year on the taxi squad or with AHL Stockton.
Kylington (not injury related) is on the ice for Saturday's practice, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.
Kylington originally wasn't expected to join the Flames until Wednesday due to immigration issues, but he's evidently sorted that out far sooner than expected. The 23-year-old Swede, who picked up seven points in 48 games last campaign, is expected to start the season on Calgary's bottom pairing.
Kylington (immigration) may not be able to join the Flames until the day before the team's regular-season opener against the Jets on Jan. 14, Wes Gilbertson of the Calgary Sun reports.
The 2015 second-round pick will almost certainly miss the entirety of Calgary's training camp while he continues to sort through immigration issues, which means Nikita Nesterov could start the season skating on the bottom pairing in place of the late-arriving Kylington. Either way, the 23-year-old Swede only picked up seven points in 48 games last campaign, so there's no reason for virtual managers to monitor his situation closely.
Kylington (immigration) will be a late arrival to Flames training camp, Wes Gilbertson of the Calgary Sun reports.
Kylington signed a contract Dec. 18 and hasn't quite sorted through the immigration paperwork to get back in time for the start of camp. It shouldn't affect his availability for the regular season, but the 23-year-old is expected to be a third-pairing player at best.
Kylington signed a one-year, two-way contract extension Friday.
Kylington drew into 48 games with the Flames last campaign, picking up seven points while averaging 13:42 of ice time per contest. The 2015 second-round pick will likely continue to be a rotational, bottom-pairing option for Calgary in 2020-21, so he won't be worth a roster spot in fantasy leagues.
Kylington has been a healthy scratch for the last three games.
The Flames acquired Erik Gustafsson from Chicago and Derek Forbort from Los Angeles at the trade deadline, and they now occupy Kylington's former third-pairing role. Travis Hamonic (upper body) is still at least a couple weeks away from returning -- when that happens, Kylington could end up packing his bags for AHL Stockton. The Swedish blueliner has no fantasy value while he's stuck in the press box.
Kylington managed two assists in Saturday's 8-4 loss to the Blackhawks.
This marked Kylington's second multi-point game in his career. The Swede now has seven points in 45 games -- three of those points have come in the last two outings. Despite the recent uptick in offense, Kylington shouldn't be counted on to produce often.
Kylington netted a goal on two shots in Thursday's 6-0 win over the Ducks.
Kylington hadn't scored since Dec. 19, a span of 16 appearances for the Swedish defenseman. It's just his second goal of the year, to go with three helpers, 34 shots, 33 hits and 30 blocked shots in 44 outings. The 22-year-old is still adjusting to the NHL game -- he doesn't warrant fantasy consideration in redraft formats.
Kylington (illness) went plus-1 with a hit and a blocked shots in 16:26 during Saturday's 6-2 win over the Canucks.
The third-pairing defenseman had to cover some of the load with Travis Hamonic (undisclosed) missing a large portion of the contest. Kylington remains a non-factor in fantasy with four points, 32 hits, 30 blocked shots and a minus-8 rating in 41 games.
Kylington (illness) is in the lineup for Saturday's game in Vancouver.
Kylington returns after a two-game absence and will skate on Calgary's third defensive pairing. With just four points in 40 games, the 22-year-old blueliner is a risky fantasy play at this stage of his young career.
Kylington is under the weather and won't suit up in Thursday's game against the Predators.
The specifics of the ailment remain unclear, however, it's serious enough to force him to miss game time. The 22-year-old hasn't registered a point since Dec. 19, so his absence won't have an impact from a fantasy perspective. In Kylington's absence, Brandon Davidson will draw into the lineup on the team's third defensive pair.
Kylington has a minus-6 rating in his last eight games.
The Swede has just seven shots on goal, eight hits and four PIM in that span, while failing to get on the scoresheet. Kylington has only four points in 40 outings this year, and he hasn't been particularly good on defense either. If the Flames make a trade for a blueliner at the deadline, the 22-year-old could see himself as a healthy scratch or sent down to AHL Stockton, but it's more likely he remains in a third-pairing role for the rest of the season.
Kylington has no points in his last six games.
Kylington has been a healthy scratch in three of the last nine games for the Flames. He's still seeing the bulk of the playing time over Michael Stone on the third pairing. The 22-year-old has four points, 26 blocked shots, 23 hits and 26 shots on goal through 33 contests. His limited role should keep fantasy owners from considering him for their rosters.
Kylington scored a goal on his lone shot in Thursday's 4-3 overtime loss to Montreal.
Kylington gave the Flames a short-lived 3-2 lead when he found the net just over six minutes into the third period. The 22-year-old had gone his first 26 games of the season without scoring, chipping in just three assists. He logged just 12:52 of ice time Thursday, the lowest such total among Calgary defensemen.
Kylington recorded an assist and two PIM in Monday's 5-4 overtime win over the Avalanche.
The blueliner found Derek Ryan for the Flames' first goal at 9:33 of the second period. Kylington had gone six games without a point. He will still compete with Michael Stone for playing time on the third pairing. Kylington has just three assists and 20 shots on goal in 24 contests.
Kylington has no points in his last six appearances.
In that span, the defenseman has recorded five hits, three blocked shots, five shots on goal and a plus-1 rating. Kylington has just two assists and 20 shots in 23 games this season. He's averaged 13:07 per game, exclusively in a third-pairing role. Kylington scored three goals in three games during a stint with AHL Stockton -- it wouldn't be a surprise to see the 22-year-old occasionally go down to the minors to find his game.
Kylington produced an assist in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Avalanche.
Kylington found Andrew Mangiapane in the third period, bringing the Flames within a goal. It was just the second point of the year for the defenseman. Kylington also has 15 blocked shots and 15 shots on goal through 17 games. He doesn't produce much in any given category -- fantasy owners need not pay attention.
The Flames recalled Kylington from AHL Stockton on Friday.
T.J. Brodie (undisclosed) is considered out indefinitely, so Kylington could be in for an extended stay with the big club. The 22-year-old blueliner has notched one helper in 14 appearances with Calgary this campaign.
Kylington was sent down to AHL Stockton on Thursday.
Kylington is averaging a mere 13:23 of ice time this season, so his demotion to the minors shouldn't come as a shock. Michael Stone figures to slot into the lineup with Kylington gone, while Brandon Davidson was recalled in order to provide extra depth on the blue line.
