Flames' Mark Giordano: Drops off in 2019-20
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giordano finished 2019-20 with 31 points in 60 games.

Giordano, the 2019 Norris Trophy winner, had 17 goals and 74 points during the previous campaign, but couldn't muster even half of that production in 2019-20. He'll turn 37 years old prior to the start of next season -- Father Time is undefeated, and Giordano's time as a high-end fantasy defenseman may be at its end. He still topped 140 blocked shots for the fifth straight year -- Giordano provides the Flames with solid play in all zones, but that can also make him more injury prone.

Flames' Mark Giordano: Contributes helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giordano produced an assist, blocked six shots and went plus-2 in Friday's 2-0 win over the Stars in Game 3.

Giordano once again led the Flames in blocks, and all that defensive work was rewarded in the win. He had the secondary helper on defense partner T.J. Brodie's third-period tally. Through seven playoff games, Giordano has three assists, 16 shots on goal, 22 blocks and a plus-2 rating.

Flames' Mark Giordano: Garners assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giordano recorded an assist and four PIM in Thursday's 5-4 loss to the Stars in Game 2.

Giordano had the secondary helper on Dillon Dube's opening tally 19 seconds into the game. Later in the game, Giordano took a couple of minor penalties. The Stars' Corey Perry scored on a power play in the second period, but things evened out when Tobias Rieder struck shorthanded during Giordano's other penalty in the third. Through six postseason games, Giordano has two helpers, 16 blocked shots, 14 shots on goal and eight PIM.

Flames' Mark Giordano: Helps out on power play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giordano posted a power-play assist and four blocked shots in Tuesday's 6-2 win over the Jets in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Qualifiers.

Giordano's defensive work helped make life easier for goalie Cam Talbot. The blueliner was rewarded with the secondary helper on Milan Lucic's third-period tally. Giordano had 11 of his 31 points come on the power play during the regular season. The 36-year-old added 148 blocked shots in 60 games -- he's not afraid to lay his body on the line.

Flames' Mark Giordano: Offensive production missing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giordano has five goals and 31 points in 60 games this season.

After exploding for 74 points last season on his way to winning the Norris Trophy, Giordano's 2019-20 campaign has been a big letdown for fantasy owners. Even if the NHL does resume the regular season, it looks like the 36-year-old's six-year streak with double-digit goals will come to an end.

Flames' Mark Giordano: Contributes helper in OT win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giordano managed an assist and a team-high six shots on goal in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime win over the Blue Jackets.

Giordano had a shot attempt tipped in by Matthew Tkachuk for the game-tying goal with 1:43 left in regulation. The 36-year-old defenseman has four helpers in as many games since he returned from a hamstring injury. He's at just 31 points with 154 shots and 142 blocked shots in 58 contests, far below last year's 74-point output.

Flames' Mark Giordano: Sparks offense with three helpers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giordano notched three assists, one on the power play, in Sunday's 3-0 win over the Panthers.

For one day at least, the 36-year-old blueliner rediscovered his Norris Trophy-winning form, after being held off the scoresheet in his first two games back in the lineup from a hamstring injury. On the season, Giordano has only five goals and 30 points through 57 contests.

Flames' Mark Giordano: Returns to usual role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giordano (hamstring) had two shots on goal, two blocked shots and a hit in 21:34 during Thursday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Predators.

Giordano immediately resumed his top-pairing duties after a 10-game absence. The 36-year-old blueliner remains at 27 points with 138 blocks and 145 shots through 55 contests this year. With the acquisition of Erik Gustafsson from the Blackhawks at the trade deadline, Giordano is set to see less time on the power play over the final stretch of the season.

Flames' Mark Giordano: Will suit up Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giordano (hamstring) took line rushes during warmups and will play in Thursday's game against the Predators, Derek Wills of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

Giordano missed 10 games with the injury, but he's ready to return. Expect the 36-year-old to pair with T.J. Brodie on the top pairing. Michael Stone will exit the lineup to make way for Giordano.

Flames' Mark Giordano: Officially game-time call
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giordano (hamstring) is officially considered a game-time call, despite taking rushes with the No. 2 power-play unit, Derek Wills of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

Giordano was expected to suit up versus the Bruins on Tuesday but ultimately was given an extra day off. The blueliner missed the Flames' previous 10 contests due to his hamstring problem. Prior to getting hurt, the Toronto native racked up six helpers in his last five appearances, yet he hasn't found the back of the net in his last10 appearances.

Flames' Mark Giordano: Projected to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giordano (hamstring) is expected to return to the lineup for Thursday's game against Nashville, Derek Wills of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

Giordano was close to returning Tuesday against Boston, as he was considered a game-time call for that contest, but the Flames ultimately decided that he could stand to benefit from a few extra days of rest. The veteran blueliner is technically once again considered a game-time decision for Thursday's tilt, but all signs currently point to him returning to action. If that ends up being the case, he'll likely skate on Calgary's top pairing and second power-play unit against the Predators.

Flames' Mark Giordano: Not playing Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Contrary to a previous report, Giordano (hamstring) was absent from warmups and won't play against the Bruins on Tuesday, Derek Wills of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

Giordano took line rushes with the first pairing during Tuesday's game-day skate, but the veteran blueliner will take another night off before suiting up for his first game since Feb. 4. Michael Stone will draw into the lineup in Giordano's place.

Flames' Mark Giordano: Ready to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giordano (hamstring) is expected to return to the lineup Tuesday against the Bruins, Derek Wills of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

Giordano has been sidelined for three weeks with a hamstring injury, but he's been skating since last Tuesday, so he shouldn't have any limitations against Boston. The 36-year-old vet, who's notched five goals and 27 points in 54 games this campaign, will skate on Calgary's top pairing and second power-play unit in his return to action.

Flames' Mark Giordano: Returns to ice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giordano (hamstring) started skating on his own Tuesday, but there's no timeline for his return, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

Giordano is still considered week-to-week with a hamstring injury, but he's trending in the right direction. The next step in his recovery will be to participate in team practices, and he'll likely get his footing in a no-contact capacity. The Flames also have Travis Hamonic (upper body) on injured reserve, so for the time being, Noah Hanifin and Michael Stone should continue to enjoy upticks in ice time.

Flames' Mark Giordano: Week-to-week with hamstring injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giordano was designated for injured reserve and is considered week-to-week due to his hamstring injury, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

While Giordano is certainly expected to miss some time, the fact that he won't require surgery and isn't considered out for the year is good news for the Flames faithful. Prior to getting hurt, the blueliner was stuck in a 10-game goal drought but did manage to rack up seven helpers over that stretch. With Giordano on the shelf, Travis Hamonic figures to see the biggest uptick in ice time while Michael Stone shouldn't have to worry about being a healthy scratch any more.

Flames' Mark Giordano: Will have MRI
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giordano (hamstring) will undergo an MRI on Wednesday, Wes Gilbertson of the Calgary Sun reports.

Giordano is dealing with a hamstring injury, according to Eric Duhatschek of The Athletic. There should be an update on the severity of the captain's condition later Wednesday or following Thursday's morning skate. At this time, he's trending in the wrong direction ahead of Thursday's matchup versus the Predators.

Flames' Mark Giordano: Trending in wrong direction
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Geoff Ward said Giordano (lower body) won't practice Wednesday, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

Giordano exited Tuesday's game against the Sharks in the second period and didn't return. He was reportedly in a lot of pain. The 36-year-old blueliner hasn't been ruled out of Thursday's game versus the Predators, but he's considered questionable, at best, for that outing.

Flames' Mark Giordano: Suffers lower-body injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giordano (lower body) will not return to Tuesday's game against the Sharks.

Giordano was injured late in the second period and will see his game end early Tuesday. The defenseman has been quite durable in recent years, and it's unclear how severe this injury is. The 36-year-old will hope to be ready for Thursday's game against the Predators. If he can't go, expect Oliver Kylington to join the lineup. Giordano had an assist, three shots on goal and a hit in 14:19 before his exit.

Flames' Mark Giordano: Pockets pair of helpers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giordano registered two assists, three shots on goal, three blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in Saturday's 8-3 loss to the Oilers.

Giordano has six assists over his last five games. The 36-year-old's recent hot run has him up to 26 points, 140 shots, 136 blocks and a plus-2 rating in 53 games this season.

Flames' Mark Giordano: Adds pair of power-play assists
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giordano recorded two power-play helpers, three shots on net and two blocked shots in Tuesday's 5-4 shootout loss to the Blues.

Both of Giordano's assists came in the first period, with Matthew Tkachuk and Sean Monahan scoring the goals. The 36-year-old defenseman is up to 24 points, 133 shots and 131 blocks through 51 games. Regression has hit the Flames hard after an outstanding 2018-19, and Giordano's been one of the most notably impacted players.
