Flames' Oliver Kylington: Odd man out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Flames' Oliver Kylington: Picks up pair of helpers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Flames' Oliver Kylington: Gets on scoresheet in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Flames' Oliver Kylington: Held scoreless in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Flames' Oliver Kylington: PlayingSaturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Flames' Oliver Kylington: Falls ill Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Flames' Oliver Kylington: Struggling in own end
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Flames' Oliver Kylington: Offense remains spotty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Flames' Oliver Kylington: Gets first goal of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Flames' Oliver Kylington: Pockets assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Flames' Oliver Kylington: Inconsistent point production
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Flames' Oliver Kylington: Collects assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Flames' Oliver Kylington: Summoned by parent club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Flames' Oliver Kylington: Dropped to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Flames' Oliver Kylington: Opens 2019-20 account
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kylington tallied an assist in Sunday's 4-2 loss to the Capitals.

Kylington had failed to produce a point in 12 appearances at the NHL level this season, but the 22-year-old put a stop to that with an assist on Elias Lindholm's 10th goal of the campaign. Expected to move between the NHL and AHL in 2019-20, Kylington does not hold any fantasy value at this stage of his career.

Flames' Oliver Kylington: Summoned by parent club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calgary recalled Kylington from AHL Stockton on Tuesday, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

The Flames only had six healthy defensemen on their roster prior to Kylington's promotion, so he'll round out the team's depth on the back end for the foreseeable future. The 22-year-old has gone scoreless while posting a minus-4 rating in seven appearances with the big club this season.

Flames' Oliver Kylington: Sent to bus league
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Flames assigned Kylington to AHL Stockton on Sunday, Scott Cruickshank of The Athletic reports.

The 22-year-old started the year with the big club but didn't make an impression, going pointless in seven games. The Swede was solid in the AHL last season, however, racking up 14 points in 18 games. It's likely not the last time you'll see Kylington with the big club.

Flames' Oliver Kylington: Lack of offense to open year
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kylington has no points in four appearances in 2019-20.

The defenseman has blocked five shots and posted a minus-3 rating while spending two games in the press box as a healthy scratch. Kylington is at best the sixth defenseman for the Flames, and will likely split time with Michael Stone in the lineup.

Flames' Oliver Kylington: Delivers assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kylington posted an assist, two shots and a plus-3 rating in Monday's 7-2 win over the Kings.

Kylington hadn't played since March 4, but got the opportunity with the Flames resting many of their regulars, and he didn't disappoint. Kylington is up to eight points and a plus-8 rating in 37 games this season.

Flames' Oliver Kylington: Familiar face in press box
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kylington has been a healthy scratch for the last eight games.

He last played March 4 in a return from an undisclosed injury, but coach Bill Peters has opted to deploy Oscar Fantenberg and Rasmus Andersson as the third pairing. This has left the rookie Kylington with plenty of time to watch and learn. With the Flames holding a five-point lead for the top seed in the Western Conference, Kylington may draw into the lineup to rest some of the regulars in the final games of the year.
