Projected Lines

In the biggest non-surprise ever the Flames have sent Michael Frolik down to the 4th line for tonight’s contest against the Kings. Frolik is in a weird spot as the Flames should have and maybe even were trying to deal him over the summer and now it’s like he’s playing out the string with no end in sight.

Sam Bennett will get the call to take his spot alongside Mikael Backlund and Matthew Tkachuk. If Bennett remotely produces the famed 3M Line should be permanently put down and the Flames should move on.

Here’s the rest of the Flames projected lines for their tilt with the Kings from the Saddledome.

FORWARDS

Johnny Gaudreau - Sean Monahan - Elias Lindholm

Matthew Tkachuk - Mikael Backlund - Sam Bennett

Milan Lucic - Derek Ryan - Andrew Mangiapane

Tobias Rieder - Mark Jankowski - Michael Frolik

DEFENCE

Noah Hanifin - Travis Hamonic

Oliver Kylington - Rasmus Andersson
