Hawks' Karlsson Backing-Up Crawford on Friday

News: Henrik Karlsson will again back-up Blackhawks' goalie Corey Crawford on Friday in Game 2 against the Wild as Ray Emery is still out with a lower-body injury, ESPN Chicago reports.
Analysis: Unless Crawford gets injured, Henrik Karlsson will not see the ice. In addition Emery might be back for Game 3 against the Wild so Karlsson's time as back-up might be short lived.

Hawks' Karlsson To Back Up Crawford In Playoff Opener

News: Henrik Karlsson will back up Corey Crawford in the playoff opener on Tuesday, CSN Chicago reports.
Analysis: If you gave the Blackhawks truth serum, they are crossing their fingers that Crawford stays healthy on Tuesday. Ray Emery is still out with a lower-body injury, but the Blackhawks are hopeful that he will be ready in the second game against the Wild on Friday. Henrik Karlsson was chosen over Carter Hutton to back up Crawford because he has more than one game of NHL experience. Karlsson started in goal for the Flames for 18 games in total for the 2010-11 and 2011-12 season where he had a .905 save percentage and a 2.79 goals against average.

Blackhawks' Karlsson Recalled From AHL

News: Henrik Karlsson was recalled from AHL Rockford on Friday.
Analysis: In 18 games with Rockford this season, Henrik Karlsson went 11-5-0 with a 2.86 GAA and a .898 save percentage. He'll provided some added goalkeeping depth to the top-seeded Blackhawks as they gear up for the playoffs.

Blackhawks' Karlsson Sent To AHL

News: Henrik Karlsson was assigned to AHL Rockford on Friday.
Analysis: After being recalled last week, Henrik Karlsson served as Ray Emery's backup for three games, but didn't see the ice. Corey Crawford (upper body) has returned to practice and will be back on the bench Friday, so Karlsson was sent back down.

Blackhawks Recall Goalie Karlsson

News: Henrik Karlsson was recalled by the Blackhawks on Friday from AHL Rockford, the team's official site reports.
Analysis: Henrik Karlsson was traded to the Blackhawks from the Flames on Jan. 21 for a seventh-round pick in the 2013 NHL Draft. In 26 career NHL games with the Flames, Karlsson has a 5-9-8 record with a 2.79 GAA. The Blackhawks have Crawford and Emery on the roster already, so playing time will be limited for Karlsson unless there is an injury ahead of him.

Karlsson Traded To Chicago

News: The Flames have traded Henrik Karlsson to the Blackhawks in exchange for a seventh-round pick in the 2013 NHL Draft, TSN.ca reports.
Analysis: Henrik Karlsson is on his way to AHL Rockford to provide the Blackhawks with some added goaltending depth.

Karlsson Sent To AHL By Flames

News: The Flames have assigned Henrik Karlsson to AHL Abbotsford, the team's official site reports.
Analysis: Henrik Karlsson's demotion solidifies Leland Irving's position as Miikka Kiprusoff's top backup for the time being.

Henrik Karlsson

Calgary's Karlsson Demoted

News: Henrik Karlsson lost the backup netminder battle to Leland Irving and will either be sent to the AHL or Europe, the Calgary Sun reports.
Analysis: Henrik Karlsson has only two wins in the last two calendar years, and didn't really impress in his appearances in 2011-12. He should get another chance someday for a backup job, but his chances at a starter position are limited.

Flames' Karlsson Placed On Waivers Thursday

News: Henrik Karlsson and fellow netminder Leland Irving were placed on waivers Thursday, the team's official Twitter account reports.
Analysis: The battle to back up Miikka Kiprusoff continues, as the Flames appear to be hoping a team takes either Irving or Henrik Karlsson off their hands. With a shortened season, the backup goalie job will be increasingly important, so Karlsson or Irving should get a decent amount of time in 2012-13.

Karlsson Backstops Flames To Win Saturday

News: Henrik Karlsson stopped 23 shots in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Ducks.
Analysis: It took Henrik Karlsson until the last day of the schedule to get his first win of the season, so his fantasy numbers aren't exactly off the charts. He'll once again compete for the backup job behind Miikka Kiprusoff in 2012-13.

Karlsson To Close Flames' Season Saturday Vs. Ducks

News: Henrik Karlsson will start Saturday's season finale against Anaheim, according to Sportsnet Calgary's Rob Kerr.
Analysis: Henrik Karlsson's last win came over a year ago - Jan. 21 versus Dallas - so he will no doubt be very anxious to close the season on a positive note. Karlsson has one year remaining on a two-year deal and will most likely be back with the Flames next season as backup to Miikka Kiprusoff.

Flames' Karlsson Takes Loss In Rare Start

News: Henrik Karlsson made 31 saves on 34 shots in Saturday's overtime loss to the Canucks.
Analysis: Henrik Karlsson hadn't started since Feb. 21 vs. Edmonton, so suiting up on the road in Vancouver wasn't exactly an easy task. He certainly gave his team a chance to win Saturday, but will continue to see only limited duty behind workhorse Miikka Kiprusoff.

3/31/2012

Henrik Karlsson, G, CHI

Henrik Karlsson

Flames' Karlsson To Spell Kiprusoff Saturday Vs. Canucks

News: Henrik Karlsson will start in place of Miikka Kiprusoff against the Canucks on Saturday, according to The FAN 960's Pat Steinberg.
Analysis: With just one win in their past seven games, the Flames have fallen to 11th spot in the West and have been all but eliminated from playoff contention. Meanwhile, Kiprusoff has played every other day for the past two weeks and badly needs a rest, so it makes sense that Henrik Karlsson gets some work in.

Flames' Karlsson Loses No. 2 Goalie Spot

News: Henrik Karlsson has lost the backup goalie spot to Leland Irving, the Calgary Herald reports.
Analysis: Henrik Karlsson went down with injury at a bad time, as Leland Irving played well in the backup role in his stead through the middle of the season. Karlsson was unimpressive in his five starts this season, going 0-4-1, and will likely wind up back in the AHL soon.

Calgary's Karlsson Gets Relief Time Tuesday

News: Henrik Karlsson came on in relief of Miikka Kiprusoff Tuesday, stopping seven of eight shots in the third period of a 6-1 blowout loss to Edmonton.
Analysis: Henrik Karlsson looked decent after playing in the NHL for the first time since early December. He will likely get his next start March 2 on the second half of a back-to-back against Anaheim.

Flames' Karlsson Recalled From AHL

News: The Flames recalled Henrik Karlsson from AHL Abbotsford Sunday, the team's official site reports.
Analysis: Henrik Karlsson has been out since Dec. 4 with an injury. With Miikka Kiprusoff on a roll, Karlsson likely won't get much playing time for the rest of the season but may get a spot start here and there. He is 0-4-1 on the season with a 3.48 goals against average.

Henrik Karlsson

Flames' Karlsson Headed To AHL

News: Henrik Karlsson (knee) is headed for AHL Abbotsford on a two-week conditioning stint, the team's official site reports.
Analysis: As a result, the Flames have recalled Leland Irving to work behind Miikka Kiprusoff in the meantime.

Henrik Karlsson

Calgary's Karlsson Ready For Action

News: With the re-assignment of Leland Irving, it appears Henrik Karlsson (knee) is finally near 100 percent, the Calgary Sun reports.
Analysis: Henrik Karlsson has been out for nearly two months with a torn MCL. He didn't play particularly well before the injury, going 0-4-1 with a 3.48 goals against average, but has reclaimed his backup role.

Calgary's Karlsson Practices With Team

News: Henrik Karlsson took part in practice Monday for the first time since injuring his knee Dec. 4, the Calgary Sun reports.
Analysis: Henrik Karlsson is still a few weeks away from returning, but he is making progress. He should get his No. 2 goaltender spot back when he returns, although current backup Leland Irving has played well in his stead.

Flames' Karlsson Making Progress

News: Henrik Karlsson (knee) is practicing on-ice on his own and continues to progress, the Calgary Herald reports.
Analysis: Henrik Karlsson tore his MCL in early December, and the injury was projected as a six-to-eight-week injury, so he is should be back in a couple weeks. The bigger problem for Karlsson is that current No. 2 goalie Leland Irving has played well in his absence, which may not bode well for Karlsson.

Henrik Karlsson

Flames' Karlsson Out 6-to-8 Weeks

News: Henrik Karlsson will miss 6-to-8 weeks with what has been officially diagnosed as a torn MCL in his right knee, according to the Flames' official website.
Analysis: Henrik Karlsson's injury will hurt the Flames more than fantasy owners - new backup Leland Irving, while promising, has not appeared in an NHL game and would benefit from regular playing time in the AHL.

Calgary Places Karlsson On IR

News: Henrik Karlsson (knee) was placed on IR on Monday, CalgaryFlames.com reports.
Analysis: Leland Irving was called up to take Henrik Karlsson's place. It's not clear how long Karlsson will be shelved with what has been diagnosed as an MCL sprain.

Flames' Karlsson Suffers Knee Injury

News: Henrik Karlsson left the Flames' 5-1 loss to Vancouver on Sunday night with an apparent knee injury, the Associated Press reports.
Analysis: Henrik Karlsson left in the third period after a collision with teammate Tom Kostopolous. It's not likely Karlsson will receive another start for a while anyway, as he has an 0-4-1 record and a 3.48 goals against average, so that should give his knee time to heal.

Flames' Karlsson Gets Yanked.

News: Henrik Karlsson gave up five goals on 32 shots Sunday against Vancouver. He was pulled after 46:39 and took the loss.
Analysis: Henrik Karlsson rarely plays as Miikka Kiprusoff's backup, and he's more prone to have a game like this than be worth a spot start, especially on a poor Calgary team.

Flames' Karlsson Lets In Three In Loss

News: Karlson gave up three goals on 29 shots in a loss to Columbus on Monday.
Analysis: Backing up Miikka Kiprusoff, Henrik Karlsson rarely plays, and he has not impressed in his career when given the chance.
