Lee Stempniak has put together a quietly solid season in Southern Alberta, notching 32 points in 47 contests and finishing a plus-2. His goal totals are a bit down from his career average, but he's a veteran NHL player that can be a decent waiver option in very deep leagues. (Updated 4/27/13).
04/21/2013 20:42 Flames put Minnesota in tough position for playoffs
Joey MacDonald made 34 saves, Mark Cundari scored a goal in his first NHL game and the Calgary Flames beat Minnesota 4-1 on Sunday night to hand the Wild a potentially harmful home loss in their push for the playoffs.
While Lee Stempniak started his career with a bang in his first two seasons with St. Louis, his production has slowed since, as his 27-goal performance in 2006-07 appears to have been a bit of a fluke. Injuries hampered him in 2011-12, as he played only 61 games, notching 14 goals and 14 assists. He is a solid third-line option for the Flames, but likely wont crack the top-six forwards, which would make him much more valuable. Expect 15-20 goals and 35-40 points from him in 2012-13.
