Top Dan Vladar News

  • Flames' Dan Vladar: First off Saturday

    Vladar will guard the road net Saturday against the Oilers, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

    It'll be the first start since Jan. 20 for Vladar, who's 7-7-2 with an .888 save percentage and 3.22 GAA while backing up Jacob Markstrom this season. Vladar will have a tough task against an Edmonton team averaging 3.56 goals per game.

  • Flames' Dan Vladar: Makes relief appearance

    Vladar stopped eight of nine shots in relief of Jacob Markstrom in Saturday's 5-0 loss to the Red Wings.

    Vladar played 33:19 in the contest after Markstrom was pulled for giving up four goals on 12 shots. The 26-year-old Vladar was on injured reserve for a week due to a lower-body injury. It's unclear if he'll get much immediate playing time with Markstrom entrenched as the Flames' No. 1 goalie, but with trade rumors swirling, Vladar's workload could increase if Markstrom is dealt. For the season, Vladar is 7-7-2 with a 3.22 GAA and an .888 save percentage, and he'd likely have to share the crease with Dustin Wolf in a post-Markstrom Flames lineup.

  • Flames' Dan Vladar: Activated off IR

    Vladar (lower body) was activated off injured reserve Friday.

    Vladar has missed the last eight games with his lower-body issue, but he could be back between the pipes as soon as Saturday versus Detroit or Monday against the Jets. Jacob Markstrom's name has begun to circle in trade rumors, and if he's dealt by the March 8 trade deadline, Vladar should see a major uptick in playing time down the stretch. Vladar's gone 7-7-2 while posting a 3.27 GAA and an .888 save percentage through 16 appearances this season.

  • Flames' Dan Vladar: Designated for injured reserve

    Vladar was placed on injured reserve with a lower-body injury Friday.

    Vladar hasn't played since before the All-Star break with his last outing coming Jan. 20 versus Edmonton. As such, it's not immediately clear when the 26-year-old netminder suffered his lower-body injury. The Czech was at least fit enough to serve as the backup behind Jacob Markstrom on Thursday against New Jersey but now the team has brought Dustin Wolf up from the minors to fill that role.

  • Flames' Dan Vladar: Loses close game

    Vladar allowed two goals on 31 shots in Saturday's 3-1 loss to Edmonton.

    The only reason that the game was just 1-0 after the first period was because of the heroics of Vladar. He absolutely robbed Connor Brown with a glove save on a 2-on-1 and added another 11 saves in the frame to give his team a chance. Vladar was beat on a Ryan McLeod breakaway that he had little chance on to open the scoring. Unfortunately, early in the third period with the game tied up 1-1, Vladar allowed a fluky goal that was shot from behind the net, bounced off teammate Rasmus Andersson's stick and floated behind him. That was the game-winner and Zach Hyman's empty-net goal sealed the win for Edmonton. Vladar has allowed at least two goals in nine straight outings.

  • Flames' Dan Vladar: Gets third straight start

    Vladar will defend the home net versus Edmonton on Saturday, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

    Vladar started the last two games due to the absence of Jacob Markstrom (lower body). Markstrom is close to a return, but Dustin Wolf will back up Vladar on Saturday. Vladar has a 7-6-2 record, a 3.35 GAA and an .885 save percentage. He has a tough matchup against the red-hot Oilers. Edmonton has won 12 consecutive contests going into Saturday's action.

  • Flames' Dan Vladar: Handed loss Thursday

    Vladar saved 29 of 33 shots in Thursday's 4-3 home loss against the Maple Leafs.

    Vladar allowed four consecutive goals against Toronto, including three by Auston Matthews, leading to the Flames' first loss in five games. Andrew Mangiapane made it interesting late in the third period, cutting Toronto's lead to 4-3, but Calgary could not get the equalizer. In Vladar's last four starts he has two wins, has allowed 13 goals and managed an .882 save percentage.

  • Flames' Dan Vladar: Starting Thursday

    Vladar will get the starting assignment at home versus Toronto on Thursday, per Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan.

    Vladar will make his second straight start as Jacob Markstrom is out of action with a lower-body injury. Vladar is 7-5-2 with a 3.30 GAA and an .885 save percentage. He played well Tuesday, turning aside 23 shots in a 4-3 overtime win over Arizona. Vladar will face the Maple Leafs, who are 0-3-1 in their last four games.

  • Flames' Dan Vladar: Earns OT win

    Vladar stopped 23 of 25 shots in a 3-2 overtime victory over Arizona on Tuesday.

    Vladar was sharp, holding Arizona to a goal in each of the second and third periods before the Flames rallied for three unanswered goals to earn the win in overtime. The 26-year-old Vladar is now 7-5-2 with an .885 save percentage and a 3.30 GAA this season. He'll likely be back between the pipes Thursday against Toronto if Jacob Markstrom (lower body) remains unavailable.

  • Flames' Dan Vladar: Gets starting nod Tuesday

    Vladar will be between the pipes at home versus Arizona on Tuesday, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

    Vladar will make just his 14th NHL appearance of the season, having gone 6-5-2 with a career-worst 3.43 GAA over that stretch. The netminder's start comes as Jacob Markstrom (lower body) once again finds himself in the infirmary. Dustin Wolf was recalled from AHL Calgary to serve as the backup behind Vladar on Tuesday but could challenge for some starts while Markstrom is out.

  • Flames' Dan Vladar: Shaky against Chicago

    Vladar turned aside 16 of 20 shots in Sunday's 4-3 loss to Chicago.

    The netminder dealt with some bad luck, as the third puck to beat him caromed in off the skate of Nick DeSimone, but Vladar also left too much space to his glove side on a couple Colin Blackwell tallies. It's Vladar's first regulation loss in nearly a month, but on the season he carries a 3.43 GAA and .883 save percentage to go along with a 6-5-2 record.

  • Flames' Dan Vladar: In net Sunday

    Vladar will guard the road crease Sunday against Chicago, Wes Gilbertson of the Calgary Sun reports.

    Vladar has started just once in Calgary's last seven games, though he was sharp in that outing, stopping 29 of 32 shots in a win over Nashville. Overall, Vladar is 6-4-2 with an .888 save percentage and 3.36 GAA this season. He'll face an injury-depleted Chicago team that's scored just two goals in its last three games.

  • Flames' Dan Vladar: Makes 29 saves in win

    Vladar kicked out 29 of 32 shots in a 6-3 win over Nashville on Thursday.

    Calgary took a 2-0 goal by 5:12 of the opening period and was up 4-2 going into the first intermission, so Vladar was given plenty of breathing room. That helped bring his record up to 6-4-2. This was his first start since Dec. 16 because Calgary's been leaning heavily on Jacob Markstrom. Vladar has a 3.36 GAA and an .888 save percentage in 12 outings this season, so he's not doing nearly well enough to push for the No. 1 job.

  • Flames' Dan Vladar: Making Thursday's start

    Vladar will protect the road goal versus the Predators on Thursday, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

    Vladar hasn't played since Dec. 16 -- Jacob Markstrom took over the No. 1 job in goal after returning from a broken finger. Vladar went 1-2-1 with 13 goals allowed over four games in December. The Predators have scored 17 times over their last six contests, making this a favorable matchup for Vladar to get back in a groove.

  • Flames' Dan Vladar: Strong in win over Bolts

    Vladar stopped 31 of 33 shots in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Lightning.

    Vladar snapped his three-game losing streak with a solid win over a tough opponent. The pair of goals he allowed came in a span of 1:30 early in the third period, but Vladar was able to guide the Flames to a win. The 26-year-old is now 5-4-2 with a 3.40 GAA and an .886 save percentage through 11 outings. He hasn't done much to lay claim to a larger role once Jacob Markstrom (finger) returns, which could be as soon as Monday versus the Panthers.

  • Flames' Dan Vladar: Starting against Tampa Bay

    Vladar will defend the home crease versus Tampa Bay on Saturday, according to Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan.

    Vladar has dropped his last three decisions to slip to a 4-4-2 record on the season with a 3.54 GAA and an .879 save percentage. He gave up nine goals on 54 shots in his first two December starts, but he rebounded nicely Thursday with a 30-save effort in a 3-2 shootout loss in Minnesota. The Lightning sit 11th in NHL scoring, averaging 3.32 goals per game.

  • Flames' Dan Vladar: Plays big game but loses in SO

    Vladar made 30 saves in a 3-2 shootout loss to Minnesota on Thursday.

    This loss was not on Vladar -- he played his heart out. He allowed a goal to Matt Boldy early in the first period and then a power-play snipe at 13:18 of the second. Other than that, Vladar bricked up the twine tent. This performance was a great rebound for him after a six-goal game in Colorado on Monday. The Flames have struggled lately, so it's tough to put any of their netminders into your blue paint as a fantasy manager.

  • Flames' Dan Vladar: Set to start Thursday

    Vladar will guard the road goal versus the Wild on Thursday, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

    Vladar has lost his last two outings, giving up nine goals on 54 shots in that span. Dustin Wolf hasn't done much better lately, with both goalies squandering a chance to lay claim to the No. 1 job with Jacob Markstrom (finger) out. Vladar will take on a Wild team that has scored 21 goals over its last six games.

  • Flames' Dan Vladar: Squanders lead

    Vladar allowed six goals on 37 shots in Monday's 6-5 loss to the Avalanche.

    Vladar played well early in the game, helping the Flames build a 5-3 lead through two periods. A stretch of three goals in 4:10 by the Avalanche in the third flipped the game around, sending Vladar to his third loss in his last four appearances. This is the second time in nine games he's given up a half-dozen goals. For the season, the 26-year-old has a 4-4-1 record with a 3.76 GAA and an .871 save percentage through nine starts. Dustin Wolf will likely start Tuesday in Vegas, and if he performs well, Vladar could be set for a stint as the backup soon.
