Babchuk Leaves NHL For KHL

News: Anton Babchuk has signed a deal with the Kontinental Hockey League, according to the Calgary Herald.
Analysis: Anton Babchuk was acquired by Calgary in November 2010 with high hopes, as he had 35 points in 2010-11. However, his production tanked from there, and he spent much of the past two seasons as a healthy scratch. In 289 career NHL games, Babchuk has 107 points.

Flames' Babchuk A Healthy Scratch Monday

News: Anton Babchuk will not play Monday against the Coyotes.

Flames' Babchuk Scores First Point Of Season

News: Anton Babchuk scored his first point of the season Friday as the Flames fell to the Blues, 5-2.
Analysis: Anton Babchuk made the most of his first game back from a shoulder injury, notching an assist and four shots on goal. If he produces like this, he has a decent shot at the sixth defenseman spot, but it is only one game. He's shown flashes of scoring potential in the past, but has struggled with consistency in Calgary.

News: Anton Babchuk (shoulder) was activated from IR on Friday.
Analysis: Anton Babchuk has been working himself back from a shoulder injury he suffered in the KHL before the lockout ended. It sounds like he's ready to roll, so perhaps he'll see his first action of the season Saturday against Vancouver.

Flames' Babchuk (Shoulder) Cleared For Contact

News: Anton Babchuk (shoulder) has been cleared for contact. "This Monday, before we left for Detroit, he skated his first contact practice," Flames GM Jay Feaster said Wednesday. "He'll have another contact practice and I'd imagine by the end of the week the doctors will say that the shoulder is good to go and he'll be cleared."
Analysis: Just before the lockout ended, Anton Babchuk suffered a shoulder injury while playing in the KHL. He's been skating with the team the past couple of weeks, and is working to get himself back into game-shape. It sounds like Babchuk will be ready to go soon.

Flames' Babchuk To Be Cleared For Contact Soon

News: Anton Babchuk (shoulder) should be cleared for contact this week, according to the Calgary Sun.
Analysis: Anton Babchuk has been out for a few weeks with his shoulder injury but appears to be nearing a return. However, Calgary basically has four defensemen competing for the final two starting spots, so Babchuk may not see much playing time when he returns. He may be used as trade bait as well, as his contract is high for someone who has not played all that many games since coming to Calgary.

Flames' Babchuk Back At Practice

News: Anton Babchuk (shoulder) practiced Thursday and is nearing a return from his injury, the Calgary Herald reports.
Analysis: Anton Babchuk injured his shoulder playing overseas. It remains to be seen how much of a role he'll play when he comes back, as he was a healthy scratch much of last season.

News: Anton Babchuk suffered a shoulder injury while playing in the KHL and is expected to be sidelined for three weeks, TSN.ca reports.
Analysis: Anton Babchuk sat out the first day of training camp with the shoulder injury, but it sounds like he'll be watching practice from the bench for a couple weeks. He was injured while playing for HC Donbass. He had 10 points and 17 hits last season with the Flames.

Flames' Babchuk Gets Goal In Win Saturday

News: Anton Babchuk lit the lamp in the Flames' final game of the season Saturday, a 5-2 win over the Ducks.
Analysis: Anton Babchuk had a very disappointing season, but finished on a strong note, with five points in his final nine games. It remains to be seen how large his role will be in Calgary next season, but he certainly made a case for being in the top six defensemen.

Calgary's Babchuk Scores For Fourth Straight Game

News: Anton Babchuk is quietly on a roll, scoring for the fourth straight game Monday as the Flames beat the Stars, 5-4.
Analysis: Anton Babchuk is finally showing the prowess that allowed him to put up 35 points in 2010-11. If you have an injury and need a quick fix, Babchuk is not a bad option as he is on a hot streak.

Flames' Babchuk Finally Breaks Through

News: Anton Babchuk scored his first goal of the season Thursday in his 25th game, notching an unassisted tally on a second-period power play.
Analysis: The injury-plagued Russian has scored as many as 16 goals in a season before, but these have been lean times for him. He has points in consecutive games after going scoreless for seven straight.

Calgary's Babchuk Scores First Point In Two Months

News: Anton Babchuk registered an assist for the first time in two months Tuesday, but it wasn't enough, as Calgary fell to Colorado 2-1 in overtime.
Analysis: Anton Babchuk has received more playing time in March due to an injury to Chris Butler and has played decently. However, with Butler's return on the horizon, it's likely Babchuk will see a diminished role soon.

Flames' Babchuk Back In Lineup

News: Anton Babchuk made his way back into the Calgary lineup Sunday, playing nearly 12 minutes in relief of the injured TJ Brodie.
Analysis: Anton Babchuk has mainly played only in injury-related situations this season, with five points in 19 games. It's hard to believe Babchuk would struggle this much after putting together 35 points, a plus-14 and 156 blocked shots in 2010-11, but he has failed to recreate that success. With Brodie not expected to be out long, Babchuk will likely find himself back on the bench soon.

Flames' Babchuk Gets Back In Lineup

News: With the injury to Blake Comeau, Anton Babchuk got back into the Flames' lineup Sunday against Dallas.
Analysis: Anton Babchuk had been a healthy scratch for the previous 18 games. This season has been thoroughly disappointing for the blueliner; he was a plus-18 with 27 points in 65 games last season, but only has five points in 18 games in 2011-12.

Anton Babchuk

Flames' Babchuk A Healthy Scratch

News: Anton Babchuk was a healthy scratch again Thursday, as the return of Derek Smith bumped him from the starting lineup.
Analysis: Anton Babchuk has struggled to even get on the ice for the Flames this season. Calgary certainly expected more out of Babchuk after he scored 27 points in 65 games in 2010-11, but he has never been able to fully break out of head coach Brent Sutter's doghouse this season.

Anton Babchuk

Flames' Babchuk To Return To Lineup

News: The seldom-used Anton Babchuk will likely get back into the lineup for the Flames' stretch run with the injury to Chris Butler, the Calgary Herald reports.
Analysis: Anton Babchuk hasn't played a game since January 17, and has five assists in 17 games this season. He has played well in brief spurts in 2011-12, but the Flames need more consistency out of him as they push toward the playoffs.

Flames' Babchuk A Healthy Scratch

News: Anton Babchuk was a healthy scratch for Tuesday's game against San Jose.

Calgary's Babchuk Gets First Point Of New Year

News: Anton Babchuk registered his first point of the new year Saturday, snapping a six-game scoreless streak as the Flames fell to the Kings, 4-1.
Analysis: Anton Babchuk has played in the Flames' last eight games, his longest stretch of staying healthy all season. He's got offensive skills, but has struggled to find the stat sheet as of late. He has five points in 16 games this season.

Calgary's Babchuk Dishes Assist In Return

News: Anton Babchuk returned to the Flames lineup Friday with an assist.
Analysis: Friday was Anton Babchuk's first game since Nov. 8 after he broke his hand. The blueliner had 35 points last season split between Calgary and Carolina, so he is a decent fantasy play, if he can stay healthy.

Flames' Babchuk Should Start Friday

News: Anton Babchuk missed Thursday's game with the Islanders, but should start Friday against the Senators, the team's official site reports.

Flames' Babchuk Projected To Play Thursday

News: Anton Babchuk (hand) is projected to start in Thursday's game against the Islanders, the team's official site reports.
Analysis: Anton Babchuk hasn't played since Nov. 8 with a broken hand, but has been practicing and is cleared to play. He should start alongside Derek Smith, who has been hot as of late. If Babchuk can stay healthy, he may be worth a look if you're hurting at defenseman, as he has a rocket shot the Flames use occasionally on the power play.

News: Anton Babchuk (hand) will travel with the team on its road trip starting Tuesday, but remains on injured reserve, the Calgary Herald reports.

Flames' Babchuk Skates With Team

News: Anton Babchuk (hand) skated with the team Tuesday morning but remains on injured reserve, the Calgary Herald reports.
Analysis: The Flames have a glut of defensemen at the moment, so they are not going to rush Anton Babchuk back before he's ready. He likely will take at least another week or two before taking part in any games.
