Flames in no rush to sign fourth overall pick Bennett

Last year, the Flames signed Sean Monahan 22 days after taking him sixth overall at the draft. Three years ago, they inked Sven Baertschi 10 days after taking him 13th overall. But despite that history, Calgary GM Brad Treliving says there’s no reason to rush the process with his latest draftee, Sam Bennett, taken fourth overall at the 2014 NHL Entry Draft in Philadelphia. “It’s...

Sven Baertschi previews the Stanley Cup Finals

  Hello, and welcome to the Barry Melrose Rocks NHL Stanley Cup Preview.

If you don’t know who I am, well, let me tell you a thing or two about me. I was drafted in the 2011 draft by the Calgary Flames, and I have played parts of...

Flames prospect Baertschi will miss rest of Worlds

Sven Baertschi was looking forward to playing for Switzerland in his first World Championship.

Flames want young sniper Sven Baertschi to shoot more

Shoot, Sven! That’s been a common theme in the Calgary Flames’ video sessions, with the coaching staff encouraging snakebitten left-winger Sven Baertschi to put more pucks on net. “I had a few opportunities last game where I made the wrong decision. I had second thoughts,” Baertschi said after Saturday’s morning skate at the Saddledome. “I had the 3-on-1, the 3-on...

Here's hoping Baertschi responds properly to comments from Burke

In all likelihood Brian Burke’s intent was a kick in pants for Sven Baertschi. Nothing more. Ya it sure makes you wonder what it will be to see what a real lambasting looks like from the Calgary Flames president of hockey operations after he somewhat unloaded Monday but rest assured Burke truly wants the club’s 2011 first-round draft choice to blossom into a star for the team...
