|The Flames used the sixth overall pick in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft on center Sean Monahan. The 19-year-old is brimming with potential, but he wasn’t a shoe-in to make the roster this season. However, he’s jumped right in and started to produce, scoring 11 points (7-4=11) in his first 14 games in the League.
Curtis Glencross has three goals and two assists over a current four-game point streak for the Flames.

|We’ve seen a lot of (line shuffling) this year. I’d kind of like somebody just jump up and take it for good, but that said, when guys have gone up, they’ve responded and done the job.
