  • Flames' Dustin Wolf: Returning to minors Friday

    Wolf was shipped down to AHL Calgary on Friday.

    Wolf's services will no longer be needed by the Flames after the team also activated Dan Vladar (lower body) off injured reserve. The 22-year-old Wolf's current stint in the NHL ends on a sour note after he gave up six goals on 31 shots versus the Sharks on Thursday. Barring additional injuries, Wolf figures to spend the rest of the 2023-24 campaign in the minors.

  • Flames' Dustin Wolf: Struggles against Sharks

    Wolf stopped 25 of 31 shots in Thursday's 6-3 loss to the Sharks.

    The Flames' defense did him few favors -- two turnovers and an own goal accounted for what got by Wolf in the second period. The Sharks did better to earn their third-period markers, leading to an ugly outing for Wolf. He dropped to 1-3-1 with 22 goals allowed over six NHL appearances. The 22-year-old has some adjusting to do to be successful as an undersized goalie. Expect Jacob Markstrom back between the pipes Saturday versus the Red Wings.

  • Flames' Dustin Wolf: Starting against San Jose

    Wolf will guard the home goal against the Sharks on Thursday, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

    Wolf wasn't great in his last NHL start Dec. 12 versus Vegas, surrendering five goals on 39 shots en route to a 5-4 loss. He'll try to secure his second top-level win of the year in a highly-favorable home matchup with a San Jose squad that's 5-20-3 on the road this season.

  • Flames' Dustin Wolf: Back in Calgary

    Wolf was recalled from AHL Calgary on Friday.

    Wolf will back up Jacob Markstrom as Dan Vladar was placed on injured reserve with a lower-body injury. Wolf was 1-2-1 with a 3.47 GAA and an .893 save percentage in an earlier call up with the Flames. He was having another outstanding season with the Wranglers, going 18-7-2 with a 2.27 GAA and a .927 save percentage before his recall.

  • Flames' Dustin Wolf: Back to AHL

    Wolf was reassigned to AHL Calgary on Sunday, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

    With Jacob Markstrom (lower body) expected to return Tuesday, Wolf will head back to the AHL, where he should remain a depth option behind Markstrom and Dan Vladar. The 22-year-old Wolf is 1-2-1 with an .893 save percentage and 3.46 GAA in five NHL appearances this season.

  • Flames' Dustin Wolf: Joins big club

    Wolf was recalled by the Flames on Tuesday, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

    Jacob Markstrom is day-to-day with a lower-body injury, so Wolf will serve as Dan Vladar's backup for Tuesday's game against Arizona. Wolf, who's gone 1-2-1 while posting a 3.47 GAA and an .893 save percentage through five NHL appearances this season, will likely return to the minors as soon as Markstrom is healthy.

  • Flames' Dustin Wolf: Sent back to AHL

    Wolf was reassigned to AHL Calgary on Sunday.

    With Jacob Markstrom returning from IR, Wolf will subsequently head back to the AHL after going 1-2-1 with an .893 save percentage across five NHL appearances. The 22-year-old Wolf figures to serve as injury insurance behind Markstrom and Dan Vladar while he continues to get work in the AHL.

  • Flames' Dustin Wolf: Allows five goals Tuesday

    Wolf stopped 34 of 39 shots in Tuesday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Golden Knights.

    Wolf's final line doesn't speak to how he kept the Flames close under pressure from the Golden Knights' offense. Unfortunately, he let a trio of one-goal leads slip away and then lost the game on Mark Stone's breakaway tally in overtime. Wolf is now 1-2-1 with 16 goals allowed over five NHL outings this season. The 22-year-old likely needs to string some good games together to get more playing time, though Dan Vladar hasn't been very effective in the absence of Jacob Markstrom (finger). The Flames wrap up their three-game road trip in Minnesota on Thursday, and it's unclear which goalie will get the nod for that contest.

  • Flames' Dustin Wolf: Starting in Vegas

    Wolf will defend the road net Tuesday against the Golden Knights, per Brendan Parker of Flames TV.

    Wolf will get the second half of Calgary's back-to-back after Dan Vladar played in Monday's 6-5 loss to Colorado. The 22-year-old Wolf has posted a 1-2-0 record with a 3.04 GAA and a .900 save percentage in four NHL outings this season. Vegas is tied for 10th in the league with 3.31 goals per game this campaign.

  • Flames' Dustin Wolf: Falls to Devils

    Wolf stopped 26 of 29 shots in a 4-2 loss to New Jersey on Saturday. The final goal was scored into an empty net.

    Calgary had a 1-0 lead going into the second period, but Wolf surrendered two goals on 11 shots in that frame. He dropped to 1-2-0 with a 3.04 GAA and a .900 save percentage in four contests this season. Wolf has been getting work while Jacob Markstrom (finger) is unavailable. If Markstrom doesn't return soon, Wolf is likely to get at least one more start because Calgary has an upcoming back-to-back on the road against Colorado and Vegas on Monday and Tuesday, respectively.

  • Flames' Dustin Wolf: Facing Devils

    Wolf will patrol the home crease Saturday against New Jersey, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

    Wolf is coming off a 28-save performance in Thursday's 3-2 win over Carolina. He has posted a 1-1-0 record this season with a 3.03 GAA and a .901 save percentage in three appearances. With Jacob Markstrom (finger) unavailable, Wolf is battling with Dan Vladar for playing time.

  • Flames' Dustin Wolf: Backstops comeback win

    Wolf stopped 28 of 30 shots in Thursday's 3-2 win over the Hurricanes.

    Wolf got off to an unfortunate start, giving up a pair of goals on deflections in the first period. From there, the reigning AHL MVP was dialed in, slamming the door and letting the Flames' offense take care of the rest in the final frame. The win was Wolf's first in three NHL outings this season and the second top-level victory of his career. He's allowed eight goals on 81 shots in 2023-24, and he could continue to challenge Dan Vladar for playing time while Jacob Markstrom (finger) is out. The Flames play a home matinee on Saturday before embarking on a three-game road trip that includes a back-to-back, so it's likely the goaltending situation will remain muddied through the team's travels.

  • Flames' Dustin Wolf: Between pipes against Canes

    Wolf will tend the twine at home versus Carolina on Thursday, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

    Wolf has made just two appearances in the NHL this season, posting a 3.67 GAA and .882 save percentage over that span. Until Jacob Markstrom (finger) is back, Dan Vladar should see the majority of the starts with Wolf serving as the No. 2 option, though any struggles by Vladar could open the door for Wolf to see additional playing time.

  • Flames' Dustin Wolf: Makes relief appearance

    Wolf stopped 11 of 13 shots in relief of Dan Vladar in Tuesday's 5-2 loss to the Wild.

    Wolf entered early in the second period as a 1-0 deficit at the intermission quickly snowballed into a 3-0 hole just 1:30 into the frame. Wolf wasn't on the hook for the loss, but he has now allowed six goals on 51 shots over two NHL appearances this season. Wolf and Vladar are set to compete for the starting job in Calgary while Jacob Markstrom recovers from a broken finger sustained Monday in practice. With Vladar already struggling this season, Wolf may only need a couple of good games to see a bump in playing time.

  • Flames' Dustin Wolf: Recalled from minors

    Wolf was called up from AHL Calgary on Tuesday.

    Jacob Markstrom is considered week-to-week after suffering a fractured finger in Monday's practice, which opens the door for Wolf to compete with Dan Vladar for starts. Vladar is expected to get the nod Tuesday against Minnesota. Wolf has posted a 10-3-0 record with a 2.50 GAA and a .920 save percentage in 13 AHL contests this campaign.

  • Flames' Dustin Wolf: Returned to AHL affiliate

    Wolf was reassigned to AHL Calgary on Tuesday.

    Jacob Markstrom (upper body) will return to the lineup for Tuesday's game against Montreal, so the Flames are no longer in need of Wolf's services in goal, although it wouldn't be surprising to see him get a few more looks at the NHL level as the season unfolds. Wolf, who is widely considered Calgary's goalie of the future, made his second NHL start Saturday versus Ottawa, allowing four goals on 38 shots en route to a 4-1 defeat.

  • Flames' Dustin Wolf: Strong play but no help from mates

    Wolf made 34 saves in a 4-1 loss to the Senators on Saturday.

    Wolf didn't get much help from his teammates despite a strong showing in his season debut with the Flames. He was beaten on a tip-in, a batted-in puck, a two-on-one and a tic-tac one-timer -- how do you stop many or any of those? Wolf is the Flames' netminder of the future after piling up a truckload of awards. He was the WHL's top goalie twice and the CHL's best once. He has also won a World Junior gold medal, two AHL-best goalie awards and one AHL MVP. But he needs help. Wolf is in tough in single-year leagues, but is a strong dynasty hold.

  • Flames' Dustin Wolf: Makes season debut Saturday

    Wolf will defend the visiting crease versus Ottawa on Saturday.

    Wolf is the Flames' goaltender of the future and he has been sensational at the AHL level. He went 33-9-4 with a 2.35 GAA and .924 save percentage two seasons ago, then posted a 42-10-2 mark to go with a 2.09 GAA and .932 save percentage last season. Wolf was 5-1-0 in the AHL before his recall this season. He'll make his second career NHL start Saturday, as he defeated San Jose 3-1 at the end of last season, stopping 23 shots. Wolf will face the Senators, who have scored 46 goals in 12 games this season.

  • Flames' Dustin Wolf: Rises to top level

    Wolf was recalled by the Flames on Thursday, Aaron Vickers of NHL.com reports.

    Dan Vladar has struggled as the Flames' No. 2 netminder this season, posting an ugly 4.00 GAA and .844 save percentage through three appearances, so if Wolf gets into a few games and performs well, he could conceivably take over as the team's backup behind Jacob Markstrom. Wolf has gone 5-1-0 while posting an admirable 2.34 GAA and .924 save percentage through six AHL appearances this season.

  • Flames' Dustin Wolf: Sent down

    Wolf was reassigned to AHL Calgary on Thursday, Aaron Vickers of NHL.com reports.

    Wolf is considered the Flames' goaltender of the future. He was sent down to get in playing time, as Jacob Markstrom is expected to be the No. 1 netminder and Dan Vladar will be the backup going into the 2023-24 campaign. Expect Wolf to be recalled if Markstrom struggles like he did in 2022-23. Wolf posted a mark of 41-9-2 with a 2.08 GAA and a .932 save percentage in 53 AHL games last season.
