  • Flames' Matthew Phillips: Among Calgary cuts

    Phillips was re-assigned to the AHL on Sunday, per Aaron Vickers of

    Phillips posted 31 goals and 37 assists in 65 games to lead AHL Stockton last season. If unclaimed, the speedy winger will begin the 2022-23 season in the AHL, though he should see opportunities with the Flames at some point during the season.

  • Flames' Matthew Phillips: Inks new contract

    Phillips signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Flames on Saturday.

    Phillips led AHL Stockton last season with 31 goals and added 37 assists in 65 games. He was called up as one of the Flames' Black Aces during the playoffs. The undersized winger's impressive scoring pace should earn him a long look in training camp, but the two-way nature of his deal suggests he'll spend at least part of the campaign in the bus league.

  • Flames' Matthew Phillips: Waived Sunday

    Phillips was placed on waivers by the Flames on Sunday.

    Phillips made his NHL debut in the regular-season finale for the Flames last year. The 23-year-old will begin the season with AHL Stockton if he goes unclaimed on waivers. A strong start in the minors could vault him to the top of the list for call-up candidates if the Flames need forward reinforcements.

  • Flames' Matthew Phillips: Snags two-way contract

    Phillips penned a one-year, two-way deal with Calgary on Friday.

    Phillips made his NHL debut this past season, though it was his only taste of NHL action. The 23-year-old sixth-round pick should be capable of pushing for more opportunities this year but ultimately figures to spend the bulk of the campaign in the minors with AHL Stockton.

  • Flames' Matthew Phillips: Making NHL debut

    Phillips will be promoted to Calgary's active roster and make his NHL debut Wednesday versus Vancouver, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

    Phillips has played pretty well in the minors this season, picking up 21 points through 30 contests. The 2016 sixth-round pick will likely slot into a bottom-six role for Wednesday's contest.

  • Flames' Matthew Phillips: Promoted to taxi squad

    Phillips was promoted to the taxi squad Tuesday, per CapFriendly.

    Phillips was second on AHL Stockton's scoring list this season with 21 points in 30 contests. The 23-year-old forward could get a look in Wednesday's season finale versus the Canucks if he's lifted to the active roster.

  • Flames' Matthew Phillips: Cut from camp

    Phillips (undisclosed) won't be included on Calgary's 31-man playoff roster, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

    Phillips impressed in the AHL this season, notching 15 goals and 33 points in 38 games, but he was never expected to make the Flames' playoff roster. The 22-year-old forward missed practice with an undisclosed issue Sunday, but he'll have plenty of time to heal up ahead of next year's training camp.

  • Flames' Matthew Phillips: Sits out Sunday

    Phillips (undisclosed) was unable to participate in Sunday's practice, Scott Cruickshank of The Athletic reports.

    The reason behind Phillips' absence remains unclear, as he's been a full participant during training camp until this point. It could be just a maintenance day off for the 22-year-old, but it's likely his status won't be updated until he returns to practice.

  • Flames' Matthew Phillips: Back in action with AHL Stockton

    Phillips (kneecap) will return to action in AHL Stockton's game Saturday.

    Phillips missed about a month and a half after he required surgery to repair a fractured kneecap. The 21-year-old was better than a point-per-game pace with the Heat prior to the injury (30 points in 28 outings). Phillips will likely be sheltered at first, but if he can get back into form, he could be a candidate to jump to the parent club if the Flames need forward depth late in the season.

  • Flames' Matthew Phillips: Sustains serious injury

    Phillips suffered a fractured kneecap in an AHL game and is considered month-to-month, Aaron Vickers of reports.

    The 5-foot-7 forward will undergo surgery to repair his kneecap. Phillips was having an outstanding season with AHL Stockton, as he's racked up 14 goals and 30 points over 28 games, but this injury could reasonably end the 21-year-old's campaign.

  • Flames' Matthew Phillips: Assigned to minor-league affiliate

    Calgary reassigned Phillips to AHL Stockton on Friday.

    Matthew Tkachuk (upper body) returned to action Thursday against Toronto, so the Flames are no longer in need of Phillips' services on the wing. The 21-year-old will continue to be one of the first skaters the big club turns to when dealing with injuries up front, but he won't have any fantasy value in 2019-20.

  • Flames' Matthew Phillips: Gets promotion to Flames

    The Flames recalled Phillips from AHL Stockton on Tuesday.

    Phillips compiled 38 points over 65 games last year, but it appears he made major improvements during the offseason, as he's totaled nine goals and 16 assists over 22 contests this year. The 21-year-old has always had a scoring knack, as he piled up 136 goals over 214 games in Canadien juniors, but his 5-foot-7 frame may have scared some teams off, with the Flames selecting him in the sixth round of the 2016 NHL Entry Draft. It's unsettled if he'll make his NHL debut during this stint.

  • Flames' Matthew Phillips: Heading to minors

    Phillips was reassigned to AHL Stockton on Monday, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

    Phillips scored two goals in two games versus the Oilers' rookies, and added an assist in a 4-3 win over the Canucks in his full preaseason debut. The diminutive forward enters his second professional season with Stockton, where he had 38 points in 65 games last year. The 21-year-old may even earn a promotion this season if the Flames' forward group is thinned by injuries.

  • Flames' Matthew Phillips: Scores twice in prospect games

    Phillips scored a goal in each game versus the Oilers rookies during their recent prospect games.

    Phillips scored the lone goal in Saturday's 1-0 contest in Red Deer, and then added an empty-netter to cap a 3-1 victory in Calgary. The five-foot-seven forward recorded 38 points (13 tallies, 25 assists) in 65 games with AHL Stockton last season. He'll probably spend the vast majority of the upcoming year in the minors as well, as the Flames are strong down the middle with the likes of Sean Monahan, Mikael Backlund and Mark Jankowski playing the pivot on the top three lines.
