Flames' Hudler Played Through Injury

News: Flames GM Brad Treliving said Tuesday that Jiri Hudler had been playing through neck and back issues, NHL.com's Aaron Vickers reports.
Analysis: It's not clear how long exactly Jiri Hudler was nursing the injuries, but there was nothing about his performance at any point during the regular season or playoffs that suggested he was playing at sub-optimal health. The 31-year-old destroyed his previous career highs by tallying 31 goals and 76 points during the regular season, allowing him to finish as a top-10 scorer in the NHL. Hudler certainly won't fly under the radar heading into fantasy drafts next season.

Flames' Hudler Notches Two Points In Game 5 Loss

News: Jiri Hudler scored his fourth goal of the playoffs and had an assist in Sunday's series-ending Game 5 loss to the Ducks.
Analysis: While Jiri Hudler had a decent postseason, he failed to record a point in the first four games of the second round and was held pointless in eight of 11 postseason games. The 31-year-old was a force on the power play though, notching three goals with the man advantage. If Hudler, who notched a whopping 76 points in the regular season, continues to play with rising stars Johnny Gaudreau and Sean Monahan next season, he'll likely be in for another very productive campaign.

Flames' Hudler Skates Sunday Morning

News: Jiri Hudler (undisclosed) was able to take part in morning skate Sunday, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The FAN reports.
Analysis: He was also able to skate Saturday, which indicates that Jiri Hudler will likely be available for the Flames Game 2 contest Sunday night. It's possible that the large deficit the Flames faced when Hudler was initially injured played a part in his not returning to that contest.

Flames' Hudler (Undisclosed) Practices On Saturday

News: Jiri Hudler (undisclosed) was able to participate in the Flames' practice on Saturday, Wes Gilbertson of the Calgary Sun reports.
Analysis: The nature of Jiri Hudler's injury remains unclear, however, the fact that he was able to practice on Saturday indicates he'll likely be able to suit up for Sunday's Game 2 against the Ducks. Calgary should provide an update on his status prior to puck drop on Sunday.

Flames' Hudler (Undisclosed) Day-To-Day

News: Jiri Hudler is day-to-day with an undisclosed injury, Derek Wills of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.
Analysis: The nature of Jiri Hudler's injury isn't clear at this point in time, but it appears as though he's currently a question mark for Sunday's Game 2 against the Ducks. The team should update his status prior to puck drop on Sunday.

Flames' Hudler (Undisclosed) Won't Return Thursday

News: Jiri Hudler will not return after suffering an undisclosed injury in Thursday's Game 1 matchup with the Ducks.
Analysis: Jiri Hudler suffered the injury early in the second period, and with a deficit too large to overcome, the team will shut him down for the night. It's unclear if the issue will extend into Game 2 on Saturday, but the teams should provide an update at some point before the contest.

Flames' Hudler Leaves With Undisclosed Issue

News: Jiri Hudler left Thursday's Game 1 against the Ducks in the second period with an undisclosed injury, Helene Elliott of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Analysis: Jiri Hudler took just three shifts in the second period before leaving the ice, and he didn't return at all in the second period or at the beginning the third. His reason for leaving wasn't disclosed at this point, but the team should provide one when it's available. For now, consider him day-to-day with an unclear status heading into Game 2 on Sunday.

Hudler Leads Flames To Series Win

News: Jiri Hudler scored a pair of goals, dished out two assists, recorded a plus-3 rating and fired five shots on goal in Saturday's series-clinching Game 6 win over the Canucks.
Analysis: A terrific performance from Jiri Hudler, who finishes the first round with six points in six games. The 31-year-old continues to thrive on the top line with Sean Monahan and Johnny Gaudreau, as the line combined for 10 points Saturday to eliminate the Canucks in six games. After posting 78 points in the regular season, look for the surging Hudler to continue his recent success in Round 2 against the Ducks.

Flames' Hudler Rests For Morning Skate

News: Jiri Hudler did not participate in Saturday morning's skate, but will be in the lineup for Saturday evening's Game 6 against the Canucks, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 reports.
Analysis: Jiri Hudler has struggled in the series so far, with two points to go with a minus-5 in five games. He hasn't appeared completely healthy since a rough night against the Kings back in early April, but neither of his linemates have played particularly well in the series either. They'll look to turn it around and close out the Canucks on Saturday night.

Flames' Hudler Misses Morning Skate

News: Jiri Hudler was not at practice Saturday morning, Scott Cruickshank of the Calgary Herald reports.
Analysis: Jiri Hudler hasn't played particularly well this playoff series, with two points and a minus-5 in five games. He could be struggling with an injury, as John Ramage was unexpectedly skating with the team Saturday morning. Hudler may be a game-time decision, so best look elsewhere for Saturday's games.

Flames' Hudler Joins Fun In Game 4

News: Jiri Hudler collected his first goal and assist of the playoffs -- both on the power play -- Tuesday in Game 4 against Vancouver.
Analysis: He'd been held off the scoresheet -- and taken just three shots -- in the first three games of the series after racking up 76 points in the regular season, but Jiri Hudler finally found his offensive stride in this one. Now that he's broken the seal and the Flames -- up 3-1 in the series -- are poised to play a lot more games, Hudler makes for a fine fantasy play in daily formats.

Flames' Hudler To Sit Saturday

News: Jiri Hudler (rest) is expected to be held out of Saturday's game against the Jets, Sportsnet's Nick Kypreos reports.
Analysis: The Flames punched their playoff ticket with a win over the Kings on Thursday, which will give coach Bob Hartley the opportunity to rest several key regulars for a meaningless season finale. Jiri Hudler turned in a career-best year to drive the Flames to the playoffs, generating 31 goals, 76 points, and a plus-17 rating over 78 games.

Flames' Hudler Clears 30 Goals

News: Jiri Hudler scored his 30th goal of the season Thursday, and it held up as the game-winner in the playoff-clinching victory. He added an empty-netter to boot.
Analysis: Appropriate that Jiri Hudler would be the one to get the goal that sent the Flames on, as his breakout to elite status this season has been one of the most powerful driving forces in Calgary's run to the playoffs. He remains white-hot, with 16 points and a plus-9 rating over his last 11 contests.

Flames' Hudler Gets Assist In Loss

News: Jiri Hudler tallied an assist Thursday in a 4-1 loss to St. Louis.
Analysis: Jiri Hudler had a ridiculous month of March, with 10 goals and 13 assists in 15 games. It appears he's still rolling in April, so keep him in your starting lineup.

Heater Continues For Flames' Hudler

News: Jiri Hudler scored again and chipped in an assist while going plus-3 in Monday's 5-3 win over Dallas.
Analysis: Jiri Hudler's prolific scoring pace continues, as he now has five points in two games against being held scoreless (in rare fashion) against Minnesota last Friday. He's up to 29 goals and 42 assist for 71 points (!) this season, making him an unexpected fantasy monster for the Flames in 2014-15.

Flames' Hudler Picks Up Two Points In Win

News: Jiri Hudler scored his 28th goal of the season and added an assist in Sunday's win over the Predators.
Analysis: Jiri Hudler continues to roll, piling up nine goals and 21 points in his last 14 games. He's a man on a mission and is now sitting ninth in the NHL scoring race. The 31-year-old is a huge reason why the Flames are currently occupying a playoff spot and has become a must-start every game.

Jiri Hudler

Flames' Hudler Collects Two Points

News: Jiri Hudler tallied a goal and assist in Saturday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Blue Jackets.
Analysis: The top line of Jiri Hudler, Sean Monahan, and Johnny Gaudreau were the whole of the Calgary offense Saturday, as the trio had a hand in both of the team's goals. The veteran Hudler has quietly been the most productive member of the line this season, ranking ahead of both Monahan and Gaudreau in points (64) and plus/minus (plus-9). The point total already represents a career best for Hudler, who will have a legitimate shot at reaching the 70-point plateau with 10 games still remaining on the Flames' schedule.

Hudler Helps Out In Flames' Victory

News: Jiri Hudler dished out an assist at even strength and other on the power play Thursday in a 4-1 win over Philadelphia.
Analysis: He'd been held off the scoresheet twice in a row, but you can't keep Jiri Hudler down too long this year, as he continues to build on his career-high point total -- now at 62. Just put him in your lineup and let him roll.

Flames' Hudler's Hot Streak Continues

News: Jiri Hudler put up another three points Friday -- a goal and two assists -- in a 6-3 win over the visiting Leafs.
Analysis: That's 12 points in the last six games for Jiri Hudler -- all but one of which have been multi-point efforts. He now has 60 points in 65 games (which leads the Flames and is also a new career high) and is emerging before our eyes as an elite fantasy option on an equally-surprising Calgary squad. He'll cool off, but he's shown all year that he's the real deal and can safely be relied upon for solid production in the final month of the season.

Flames' Hudler Strikes Again, Can't Be Stopped

News: Jiri Hudler recorded his fourth straight multi-point game Sunday, collecting two assists in a loss to Ottawa.
Analysis: Jiri Hudler's been red-hot of late and is now up to 56 points in 63 games on the season. Considering six of his last 11 outings have been multi-point efforts, the 31-year-old should be an automatic roll right now.

Flames' Hudler On Fire

News: Jiri Hudler found twine twice Friday, leading the Flames' offense in a 5-2 win over the Red Wings.
Analysis: That's three consecutive two-point games for Jiri Hudler, who's now up to a very impressive 23 goals and 54 points in 62 contests for the surprisingly productive Flames. He's arguably one of the quietest near point-per-game producers in the entire NHL, and as such should be rolled out at every opportunity.

Hudler Lifts Flames' Offense Again

News: Jiri Hudler scored a goal and chipped in a power-play assist Thursday in a shootout win over Boston.
Analysis: That's the second straight two-point game for Jiri Hudler on the heels of a four-game pointless skid. He's been a pretty streaky scorer, and he appears to be getting started on a fresh streak now as he continues on the finest season of his career.

Hudler's 20th Sends Flames To OT Win

News: Jiri Hudler assisted on the Flames' first goal and tallied his 20th of the year in overtime Tuesday to deliver a 3-2 win over the Flyers.
Analysis: Jiri Hudler had gone cold recently, failing to record a point in four straight games while going minus-5, but he got back to his productive ways in this one, hitting 50 points for the fourth time in his career. He's just seven shy of his career-high 57 points, so Hudler should finish this excellent season with a whole new set of high-water marks.

Flames' Hudler Nets 19th Goal

News: Jiri Hudler tallied his third goal in two games in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime loss to Minnesota.
Analysis: Jiri Hudler has caught fire, with five points in his last three games. The unassuming winger is on pace for 25-plus goals and 69 points, making him a solid start on a nightly basis.

Hudler Stokes Flames' Comeback

News: Jiri Hudler tallied two third-period goals to help the Flames rally back from a 3-0 deficit in an eventual win over the Bruins on Monday.
Analysis: With 18 goals over 58 games, Jiri Hudler has already bested his total in the category from a season earlier. Expectations weren't especially high for Hudler during what was believed to be a rebuilding season for the Flames, but the rapid development of Johnny Gaudreau and Sean Monahan has enabled the 31-year-old to become a fantasy asset in just about every format. He's netted three goals and collected two assists over his last four games, bringing his point total up to 47 for the season. He's on track to shatter his career-best 57-point output established with the Red Wings in 2008-09.
