Top Oliver Kylington News

  • Flames' Oliver Kylington: Grabs helper Saturday

    Kylington posted an assist, two shots on goal and three blocked shots in Saturday's 6-3 win over the Oilers.

    Kylington has two goals and an assist over the last three games after beginning his season with eight scoreless outings. The defenseman has added 16 shots on net, 18 blocked shots and a plus-3 rating through 11 appearances. He's on the third pairing for now, but Kylington could be moved up to a top-four role if one or both of Chris Tanev and Noah Hanifin are traded.

  • Flames' Oliver Kylington: Goals in consecutive games

    Kylington scored a goal on three shots and blocked three shots in Thursday's 3-2 overtime win over the Bruins.

    Kylington's first two points of the campaign have been his goals in each of the last two games. The 26-year-old has added 14 shots on net, 15 blocked shots and a plus-2 rating over 10 appearances in his first action since the 2021-22 campaign. Kylington's offense in a third-pairing role probably won't get him much fantasy attention, but his comeback after such a long personal absence could see him nominated for the Masterton Trophy at the end of the season.

  • Flames' Oliver Kylington: Scores for first time since 2022

    Kylington scored his first of the year in Monday's 6-3 win over the Jets.

    Kylington missed all of last season for personal reasons and has only been back for nine games. Monday's goal is a big step for the defender, as it's his first point of this campaign and his first goal since Apr. 18, 2022. Kylington has added 11 shots on goal, 12 blocked shots and a plus-1 rating this season, showing off some of his defensive skill while his offense has been lacking.

  • Flames' Oliver Kylington: Returns to action Thursday

    Kylington (personal) will return to the lineup for the first time in 20 months Thursday versus Columbus, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

    Kylington last played in the NHL during the 2021-22 campaign. He played a pair of games with AHL Calgary last week and was held off the scoresheet. He is expected to line up on the third pairing with Jordan Oesterle as Dennis Gilbert will come out of the lineup against the Blue Jackets.

  • Flames' Oliver Kylington: Back from conditioning loan

    Kylington (personal) was recalled from his conditioning assignment with AHL Calgary on Saturday, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

    Kylington didn't pick up a point in two appearances with the Wranglers. He should be back practicing with the Flames soon but remains on long-term injured reserve for the time being.

  • Flames' Oliver Kylington: On conditioning stint

    Kylington (personal) was sent to AHL Calgary on a conditioning stint Thursday.

    Kylington has not played since the 2021-22 season due to personal matters. He should get into at least four minor-league games as the Wranglers play Friday and Saturday this week and Thursday and Friday next week. Kylington will be brought back slowly and as a result shouldn't be a prime consideration in fantasy at this time.

  • Flames' Oliver Kylington: Skates with team

    Kylington (personal) skated with the Flames on Friday, Wes Gilbertson of the Calgary Sun reports.

    Kylington has no timeline to return, but it's positive to see him on the ice with his teammates for the first time since the end of the 2021-22 campaign. With Nikita Zadorov traded to Vancouver, the Flames' defensive depth is thinner than it was to begin the year. Kylington will probably need a lot of time to get back up to NHL speed, but his presence in Calgary and around the team suggests he could be back at some point this season.

    Kylington (personal) was placed on long-term injured reserve Monday, according to CapFriendly.

  • Flames' Oliver Kylington: Won't participate in camp Thursday

    Kylington (undisclosed) is unable to participate in the start of training camp Thursday.

    The decision that Kylington wouldn't initially take part in training camp was made after the defenseman underwent medical and fitness testing Wednesday. The Flames are calling this a "private personal matter" and won't comment further. Kylington didn't play in 2022-23 due to a personal matter.

  • Flames' Oliver Kylington: On training camp roster

    Kylington (personal) is listed on the Flames' training camp roster that was released Wednesday.

    As expected, Kylington is set to rejoin the team after a year away to attend to a personal matter. The 26-year-old blueliner will bolster a strong defense corps, though that may mean he'll be stuck on the third pairing with little chance of power-play time initially. Kylington had nine goals and 22 assists in 2021-22, which was a breakout campaign for the defenseman.

  • Flames' Oliver Kylington: Set to return next season

    Kylington (personal) is expected to return to the Flames for the 2023-24 campaign, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

    Kylington sat out the entire 2022-23 season because of a personal matter. Calgary President of Hockey Operations Don Maloney said Monday that Kylington is in a "very good place" and the Flames blueliner is "excited to be coming back next season." The 25-year-old Kylington generated 31 points, 138 shots on goal and 79 blocked shots in 73 games during the 2021-22 campaign.

  • Flames' Oliver Kylington: Still without timeline to return

    Kylington (personal) is staying in shape on his own but doesn't have a timeline to return to the Flames, Julian McKenzie of The Athletic reports.

    Kylington has been away from the team all season while attending to a personal matter. The defenseman is no guarantee to be back before the end of the season, and he has maintained his privacy during the situation, which has led to a lack of an update from the team on his status.

  • Flames' Oliver Kylington: Put on injured reserve

    Kylington (personal) was placed on injured reserve by the Flames on Monday, per CapFriendly.

  • Flames' Oliver Kylington: Will miss start of camp

    Kylington (personal) will miss the start of training camp, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

    Kylington has evidently recovered from the shoulder injury he played through during last year's playoffs, but he'll miss the start of camp while dealing with a personal family matter. At this point there's no reason to believe Kylington is in danger of missing Opening Night.

  • Flames' Oliver Kylington: Settles before arbitration

    Kylington (shoulder) signed a two-year, $5 million contract with the Flames on Tuesday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

    Kylington avoided arbitration by signing this deal. The 25-year-old took a major step forward in 2021-22 with nine goals and 31 points in 73 contests, but the Flames' addition of Mackenzie Weegar in the Matthew Tkachuk trade could still mean a reduced role for Kylington. He'll likely be in contention for a third-pairing role for the upcoming season.

  • Flames' Oliver Kylington: Managing shoulder injury

    Kylington played through a shoulder injury in the playoffs, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

    It's unclear how long Kylington had to carry the shoulder injury, but he missed time in April due to an upper-body injury after taking a hard hit into the boards. Steinberg adds that Kylington is not expected to need surgery, so the injury isn't likely to be a problem in 2022-23. The RFA defenseman took a big step forward in 2022-23 with 31 points, 138 shots on net, 79 blocked shots and a plus-34 rating in 73 regular-season contests.

  • Flames' Oliver Kylington: Provides assist in Game 5 loss

    Kylington notched an assist and went plus-2 in Thursday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Oilers in Game 5.

    Kylington set up a Johnny Gaudreau tally in the second period. The assist gave Kylington three points in his last six games of the playoffs after going scoreless in the first six. The 25-year-old defenseman took a step forward to become a regular in the Flames' lineup, earning 31 points (nine goals, 22 helpers) with a plus-34 rating in 73 regular-season outings. He's set to be a restricted free agent this summer.

  • Flames' Oliver Kylington: Prevents shutout Sunday

    Kylington scored a goal and blocked two shots in Sunday's 4-1 loss to the Oilers in Game 3.

    Kylington struck at 15:09 of the third period to spoil the Oilers' chances of shutting out the Flames. The goal was too little and too late to make a difference, but it's still the 25-year-old's first career playoff tally. He's at two points, 17 shots on net, 12 blocked shots, eight PIM and a plus-3 rating through 10 postseason contests.

  • Flames' Oliver Kylington: Offers helper Sunday

    Kylington logged an assist and went plus-2 in Sunday's 3-2 overtime win over the Stars in Game 7.

    Kylington spent a little time in the locker room during the second period, but he was able to return and finish out the contest. The defenseman's assist came on a Tyler Toffoli goal at 1:46 of the second. This was Kylington's first point in seven playoff contests, and he's added 15 shots on net, eight blocked shots, six PIM and a plus-2 rating. With Chris Tanev (undisclosed) out, Kylington and Michael Stone functioned more as the third pairing, which could diminish the 24-year-old's opportunities in the offensive zone heading into the second round.
