Flames' Juuso Valimaki: Heading overseas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valimaki was loaned to Tampereen Ilves in Finland on Tuesday.

Valimaki hasn't played an NHL or AHL game since April 19, 2019 after he suffered a torn ACL during offseason training in August 2019. This move will allow the Finnish blueliner to get some game experience ahead of the 2020-21 NHL campaign. He is expected to compete for an NHL job in the upcoming season.

Flames' Juuso Valimaki: On ice for scrimmage
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valimaki (knee) is participating in Tuesday's intrasquad scrimmage, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

Valimaki missed the entirety of the regular season after undergoing surgery in August to repair a torn ACL he suffered during offseason training, but it appears as though he'll be an option for the Flames during the playoffs if and when he's needed. The 2017 first-round pick notched three points in 24 appearances with the big club in 2018-19.

Flames' Juuso Valimaki: Among camp attendees
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valimaki (knee) has been added to the Flames' training camp roster.

Valimaki spent the season on long-term injured reserve after suffering an ACL injury in August. Considering he hasn't played this year, the blueliner is unlikely to get into a playoff game. However, it sounds like he could be ready for the start of the 2020-21 campaign.

Flames' Juuso Valimaki: Resumes skating
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valimaki (knee) has resumed skating but there is no timeline for his return, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

Valimaki suffered an ACL injury in August 2019 and has been out of action for the entirety of the 2019-20 campaign. While he has resumed skating, he still has a long way to go to be ready for game action. Per Steinberg, the Finnish defenseman will start to partake in practice in the near future. Valimaki is one of the Flames' top defensive prospects -- the organization will be very cautious to make sure he doesn't suffer any unnecessary setbacks in his recovery process.

Flames' Juuso Valimaki: Heading to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valimaki (knee) will start the season on injured reserve, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

This is merely a procedural move for the Flames. Valimaki tore his ACL in August and isn't expected to return in the first half of the season.

Flames' Juuso Valimaki: Suffers ACL injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valimaki sustained an ACL injury during offseason training that will require surgery and keep him out indefinitely.

In his rookie campaign, Valimaki saw action in 19 games last year, in which he notched one goal, two assists and 28 shots while averaging 15:29 of ice time. Heading into the 2019-20 campaign, the defenseman figured to have the inside track on a regular spot in the lineup, but will now face the prospect of missing most, if not all, of the upcoming season. Oliver Kylington and Alexander Yelesin will likely compete for the opening on the blue line during training camp, though a trade acquisition or free-agent signing could be in the club's future. While the team didn't provide a specific timeline, fantasy owners should expect a six-month absence at minimum.

Flames' Juuso Valimaki: Takes assist in playoff debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valimaki recorded an assist, two shots and three hits in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Avalanche in Game 4.

Making his postseason debut, the Finnish blueliner managed an assist. It's his fourth point in 25 contests including the regular season. Valimaki replaced Oscar Fantenberg on the third pairing for this contest, but it's unclear if he did enough Wednesday to maintain the lineup spot for Friday's Game 5.

Flames' Juuso Valimaki: Drawing into Game 4 lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valimaki will make his first postseason appearance in Wednesday's Game 4 against the Avalanche.

Valimaki has been an observer more often than not since his March 31 recall from AHL Stockton. He replaces Oscar Fantenberg on the third pairing with Rasmus Andersson, as the Flames find themselves in need of a jolt after falling behind 2-1 in the series with Monday's 6-2 loss in Game 3. Valimaki registered a goal and two assists in 24 games at the NHL level in his rookie year.

Flames' Juuso Valimaki: Records helper in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valimaki had an assist in Monday's 7-2 win over the Kings.

The Finnish defender hadn't featured in an NHL game since Nov. 23 after an ankle injury. Valimaki stayed at AHL Stockton to get back up to game speed, but he will likely remain on the NHL roster for the Flames' playoff run. The rookie has a goal and two helpers in 23 games this year.

April 1, 2019 02:56 PM
Flames' Juuso Valimaki: Back with parent club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valimaki was recalled from AHL Stockton on Monday.

The 20-year-old defenseman will get another shot with the big club, as he's produced 14 points in 20 games for Stockton this campaign. Valimaki will suit up in Monday's game against the Kings, but it likely won't change anything from a fantasy perspective, as he has just two points in 22 NHL games this season.

Flames' Juuso Valimaki: Untouchable at deadline
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valimaki appreciated general manager Brad Treliving's confidence to hold onto him at the trade deadline, Wes Gilbertson of the Calgary Sun reports.

Valimaki has appeared in 11 games at AHL Stockton, recording a goal and seven assists while appearing in all situations as he rehabs an ankle injury. The Finnish blueliner may see a call-up for the stretch run to bolster a Flames defense that allows 2.78 goals per game, eighth best in the NHL.

Flames' Juuso Valimaki: Heads to AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Flames sent Valimaki (ankle) to AHL Stockton on Tuesday, Kristen Anderson of The Calgary Sun reports.

Valimaki has been on injured reserve since Nov. 23, but he's expected back after the All-Star break with his first chance to crack the lineup Feb. 2 against the Capitals. The 2017 first-round pick had just two points in his first 22 NHL games, and it's unclear if he'll be healthy enough to play with Stockton over the extended break.

Flames' Juuso Valimaki: Expected back after All-Star break
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valimaki (ankle) will likely be ready to return following the NHL's upcoming All-Star break, Kristen Anderson of The Calgary Sun reports.

Valimaki returned to practice for the first time since suffering a high-ankle sprain Friday, but it sounds like the All-Star break will afford him enough time to get back to 100 percent ahead of the Flames' Feb. 1 matchup with Washington. Look for another update on the 2017 first-round pick's status once he's activated off injured reserve.

Flames' Juuso Valimaki: Returns to practice rink
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valimaki (ankle) was back on the ice for morning skate Friday, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

This news concerns Calgary's first-round (16th overall) draft pick from 2017. Valimaki still has a ways to go in his recovery considering this was his first time skating since sustaining the high-ankle sprain in late November, but he at least appears to be moving in the right direction.

Flames' Juuso Valimaki: Dealing with high ankle sprain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valimaki (ankle) will be out of action until late January at the earliest, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

Flames general manager, Brad Treliving spoke with the media on Monday and part of what was discussed included a timeline for Valimaki's return. The 20-year-old Finn last played on Nov. 23 and appears to still be at least a few more weeks away from suiting up in a live game.

Flames' Juuso Valimaki: Surfaces on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valimaki (lower body) is listed on injured reserve, per the NHL's official media site.

Calgary's 2017 first-round (16th overall) draft pick is labeled week-to-week with his injury. A left-shooting defenseman, Valimaki produced 40 goals and 98 assists over 159 games for WHL Tri-City between 2015-18, but he's only managed two points between 22 games in the high-pressure environment of the NHL. The Finn probably doesn't have any redraft interest at the moment, but his lofty draft stock alone should appeal to dynasty leaguers.

Flames' Juuso Valimaki: Considered week-to-week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valimaki is considered week-to-week with his lower-body injury, Derek Wills of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

Valimaki's absence will test the Flames' depth at defense, but it shouldn't impact any fantasy lineups, as he's only notched two points while averaging 15:05 of ice time in 22 appearances this campaign. The 2017 first-round pick will undoubtedly be placed on injured reserve for the duration of his recovery.

Flames' Juuso Valimaki: Day-to-day with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valimaki (lower body) won't play in Sunday's game against the Coyotes, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

The 20-year-old blueliner has just two points in 22 games, so his absence won't affect the fantasy real. Oliver Kylington will make his season debut in Valimaki's place.

October 22, 2018 09:16 AM
Flames' Juuso Valimaki: Lowest ice time among defensemen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valimaki was held pointless during Sunday's 4-1 win over the Rangers.

Valimaki spent 17 minutes on the ice as the sparsest involvement among defenders in the game. He did spend a minute on the power play, finishing with a plus-1 rating and blocking five shots in the win.

Flames' Juuso Valimaki: To start season with big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valimaki is set to start the season in Calgary, Derek Wills of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

Valimaki, 19, spent last season playing for the Tri-City Americans of the Western Hockey League where he registered 45 points in 43 games. The 16th overall selection in the 2017 NHL Entry Draft will hope to make an early impression and avoid an early-season demotion.
