Flames' McGrattan A Healthy Scratch Again

News: Brian McGrattan was a healthy scratch Tuesday for the fifth straight game.
Analysis: With a youth movement in Calgary, Brian McGrattan is in town more for his veteran presence than anything. He will likely get back in the lineup at some point, and will provide some depth for the team's grind line.

Flames' McGrattan Tallies Goal Wednesday

News: Brian McGrattan supplied his fourth goal of the season in Wednesday's loss to the Ducks.
Analysis: Defenseman Tyler Wotherspoon did the heavy lifting on Brian McGrattan's marker, intercepting an attempted clear by the Ducks and firing a shot that bounced off teammate Kevin Westgarth's glove and then off McGrattan's leg before finding the net. As a fourth-liner who doesn't possess much puck-handling skills, McGrattan shouldn't be counted on for much more than penalty minutes and hits.

Flames' McGrattan Scores In Loss

News: Brian McGrattan scored a goal late, but Calgary lost to Los Angeles 3-2 on Monday.
Analysis: Brian McGrattan actually has goals in his last two games, and led the Flames in shots Monday. In two games, however, McGrattan has tripled his season total in goals and increased his career goals to nine. He does have 95 penalty minutes on the season, but only has five points in 59 games.

Flames' McGrattan Draws Back In Monday

News: Brian McGrattan (upper body) will return to the lineup Monday, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.
Analysis: The upper-body injury sidelined Brian McGrattan for the first two games out of the break, but he'll reenter the fold after making it through morning skate with no further complications. Aside from his 95 penalty minutes, McGrattan doesn't offer many contributions in any other statistical category.

Brian McGrattan

Flames' McGrattan Will Not Play Saturday

News: Brian McGrattan (upper body) will not play Saturday against the Oilers, Pat Steinberg of 960 The FAN reports.
Analysis: Coach Bob Hartley said after Wednesday's practice that Brian McGrattan is getting close to returning, but it seems he's not quite there yet. The 32-year-old suffered the upper-body injury in practice last week and was unable to take contact in practice for most of this week.

Brian McGrattan

Flames' McGrattan Out For Thursday

News: Brian McGrattan (upper body) will not play Thursday against the Kings, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 reports.
Analysis: This comes as no surprise, as Brian McGrattan hasn't been participating in contact drills this week. However, coach Bob Hartley said after Wednesday's practice that McGrattan is close to returning, so the Flames may not be without his services for long. The winger has one goal, two assists, and 95 PIM in 54 games this season.

Flames' McGrattan Skates

News: Brian McGrattan (upper body) skated in a non-contact jersey Wednesday morning, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 reports.
Analysis: It doesn't look like he'll be ready for Thursday's game against the Kings, but considering he has just a goal and two assists in 54 games this season, Brian McGrattan's absence shouldn't affect too many fantasy lineups.

Brian McGrattan

Flames' McGrattan Skates Before Practice

News: Brian McGrattan (upper body) skated on his own before Monday's practice, NHL.com's Aaron Vickers reports.
Analysis: Brian McGrattan suffered the injury in Thursday's practice, when he tripped on a rut in the ice and crashed violently into the boards. Coach Bob Hartley isn't certain yet whether McGrattan would be available for Thursday's game vs. the Kings, but he might need to return to full practice before the coach feels comfortable using him.

Brian McGrattan

Flames' McGrattan Dealing With Upper-Body Injury

News: Head coach Bob Hartley said Brian McGrattan suffered an upper-body injury during Thursday's practice, Aaron Vickers of NHL.com reports.
Analysis: Hartley noted that Brian McGrattan was in a lot of pain after crashing into the end boards Thursday, but it's not entirely clear what type of setback he is dealing with. While Hartley did not elaborate, he also said he does not think McGrattan will be out long. Thus, it remains to be seen if McGrattan will take the ice when the Flames return to action Thursday.

Flames' McGrattan Leaves Practice With Injury

News: Brian McGrattan left Thursday's practice with an undisclosed injury, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.
Analysis: Brian McGrattan sustained the injury when he collided with the end boards and remained on the ice for a while before retreating to the locker room. The team didn't provide an update on his condition after practice and likely won't have one until Friday.

Brian McGrattan

Flames' McGrattan Returns To Lineup

News: Brian McGrattan (undisclosed) returned to the lineup, seeing 7:13 of ice time in the overtime victory over the Blackhawks.
Analysis: Even with the game requiring an extra period, Brian McGrattan still failed to crack 10 minutes, as he remains firmly entrenched on the checking line. Unless he's fighting somebody and racking up penalty minutes, he probably won't help your fantasy team.

Brian McGrattan

Calgary's McGrattan Out Of Lineup Friday

News: Brian McGrattan (undisclosed) was replaced in Friday's lineup with Paul Byron, the Calgary Sun reports.
Analysis: Brian McGrattan blocked a hard shot Wednesday and needed Friday to recuperate. The gritty forward likely just needed a maintenance game and should be back in the lineup soon.

Calgary's McGrattan Gets 15 PIM In Line Brawl

News: In a bizarre opening to Saturday's game at Vancouver, Brian McGrattan was one of ten skaters to receive 15 penalty minutes each just two seconds into the game. He skated four more shifts the rest of the way without incident; the Canucks went on to win the game in a shootout.
Analysis: He now has 93 PIM, a total that comfortably leads all Calgary skaters. There's not much to like about Calgary's offense, but if your league emphasizes penalty minutes, he's your man on this roster.

Flames' McGrattan Scores First Goal Of Season

News: Brian McGrattan netted a goal in Thursday's 2-1 victory over the Hurricanes.
Analysis: The goal was the bruising forward's first of the season. Brian McGrattan is much better known for his fighting than his scoring, with 29 PIM and two points in 28 games.

Brian McGrattan

Flames' McGrattan Back At Practice

News: Brian McGrattan (general soreness) was back practicing Friday, Randy Sportak of the Calgary Sun reports.
Analysis: Brian McGrattan sat out of Thursday's session after he was still feeling sore following Wednesday's game, but it seems like he's feeling a little better now. Even so, he wasn't skating on a line during Friday's session and looks doubtful to play against the Avalanche.

Flames' McGrattan Banged Up

News: Brian McGrattan missed Thursday's practice after coach Bob Hartley said the winger was "banged up" following Wednesday's win over the Coyotes, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.
Analysis: Hartley suggested the day off was for maintenance purposes more than anything, so he doesn't really seem in danger of missing the team's next game Friday. Brian McGrattan offers most of his utility in the penalty box, as he's racked up 29 PIM in 25 games compared to just one offensive point.

Calgary's McGrattan Tallies Assist Thursday

News: Brian McGrattan tallied an assist in Thursday's season-opening 5-4 shootout loss to Washington.
Analysis: The big man is known more for his penalty minutes and bruising style of play than his scoring, but he'll chip in a point or two now and again. He's only valuable in leagues that count penalty minutes.

Flames' McGrattan Re-Signs For Two Years

News: Brian McGrattan has re-signed with Calgary on a two-year deal, Sportsnet Radio's Pat Steinberg reports.
Analysis: Brian McGrattan is big and tough, but he has just 19 points in 233 career games and thus won't be worth owning in most fantasy leagues. PIM-only leagues could be a different story, as he's spent 505 minutes in the penalty box and 990 on the ice throughout his seven-year career. Even with such an astounding ratio of penalty minutes to time on the ice, McGrattan still may not play enough to make an impact in such leagues.

McGrattan Returns With A Bang

News: Brian McGrattan (shoulder) returned to the Calgary lineup with a bang Friday, netting a beautiful game-winning goal in a 3-1 win over Anaheim.
Analysis: After not scoring in his first 15 games, Brian McGrattan is on a roll, with three goals in his past six games. That being said, McGrattan has never scored more than five points in a season, so don't let a couple games fool you.

Flames' McGrattan (Shoulder) Will Play Friday

News: Brian McGrattan (shoulder) will return to the lineup Friday, the Flames' official Twitter account reports.
Analysis: It was initialy reported that Brian McGrattan would not play Friday, but apparently that decision has been reversed. McGrattan has not played since Apr. 6 after suffering a shoulder injury during an on-ice fight.

Flames' McGrattan Still Out

News: Brian McGrattan (shoulder) will miss Friday's game against Anaheim, the Calgary Herald reports.
Analysis: With only a few games left, it's likely Brian McGrattan is now shut down for the season.

Flames' McGrattan To Miss Wednesday's Contest

News: The Flames will be without Brian McGrattan for Wednesday's game against Vancouver, the Calgary Herald reports.
Analysis: The Flames missed Brian McGrattan's enforcement Monday, as the Avalanche's Patrick Bordeleau injured Matt Stajan with a late hit. At this stage in an enforcer's career, it takes him a little longer to get back from injury, so he may miss another game or two.

Brian McGrattan

Flames' McGrattan (Shoulder) Out Monday

News: Brian McGrattan (shoulder) will not play Monday against the Avalanche.
Analysis: The shoulder injury that forced Brian McGrattan from Saturday's game will keep him from Monday's tilt, but consider him day-to-day going forward.

Flames' McGratton: Shoulder Injury

News: McGratton left Saturday's game with a shoulder injury after a hit from Vancouver's Dale Weise, reports CBC's Hockey Night in Canada.
Analysis: He'd already delivered fantasy owners a fight major in the first period. He was visibly in pain on the Flames' bench just after the hit, but there's no information yet on the severity.

McGrattan Gets Lone Goal For Calgary

News: Brian McGrattan scored the lone goal for Calgary on Monday as it fell 4-1 to Edmonton.
Analysis: After not scoring in his first 13 games, Brian McGrattan now has a pair of goals in his last two games. He's playing well at the moment but certainly is not known for his scoring.
