Flames' Wideman The Hero In OT Win

News: Dennis Wideman found twine for the game-winning goal in overtime Monday against the Kings. He finished the night with six shots, two hits and three blocks over 26:10 of ice time.
Analysis: After suffering through a 17-game goal drought, Dennis Wideman has now lit the lamp in consecutive games, while tallying four points over his last three contests. His 12 goals on the season now place him in a tie for first in the NHL among defensemen.

Flames' Wideman Lights Lamp In Win

News: Dennis Wideman lit the lamp in a 4-3 overtime victory against San Jose on Saturday.
Analysis: Dennis Wideman has had a consistently solid season thus far in Calgary, with 11 goals and 15 assists in 44 games. The combination of Wideman, T.J. Brodie and Mark Giordano has made fantasy owners of Calgary blue-liners happy this season.

Calgary's Wideman Adds Two Helpers In Win

News: Dennis Wideman picked up a pair of assists and went plus-2 in Thursday's win over the Coyotes.
Analysis: One of them was on Sean Monahan's empty-net goal, but hey, they all count the same. While Dennis Wideman remains among the leaders among defensemen in terms of goal-scoring with 10, he hasn't put a puck in the net since Dec. 4 and has a fairly modest eight assists in 17 games since then.

Scoring Pace Slowing For Flames' Wideman

News: Dennis Wideman picked up an assist in Friday's 6-5 loss to the Panthers.
Analysis: Finally, it appears the momentum of Dennis Wideman's ridiculously hot start to the season is finally losing some momentum. After potting 10 goals over his first 26 games, Wideman's shooting percentage has regressed, as he hasn't found the net since Dec. 4. He's not been a total liability in the assist department during that goal dry spell, but nonetheless, what once seemed to be a surefire 40-point season is no longer a given.

Flames' Wideman Helps Out Twice Monday

News: Dennis Wideman assisted on two goals in Monday's win over the Kings.
Analysis: One of the helpers came on the man advantage, giving him a team-best nine power-play points on the campaign. The 31-year-old is improbably joining a resurgent season, largely on the strength of his 10 goals, which rank in a tie for first among all NHL blueliners.

Flames' Wideman Reaches 10 Goals

News: Dennis Wideman scored his ninth and 10th goals -- the first on the power play, the second at even strength -- in Thursday's overtime win against Colorado.
Analysis: Yep, he's got double-digit goals from the blue line in just 26 games. Who saw that coming? Dennis Wideman scored just four times in 46 games last year and has a career high of 13 that he appears poised to blast past as a member of the Flames' high-scoring blue line. He also has a three-game point streak going in which he's tallied five points.

Two More Points For Flames' Wideman

News: Dennis Wideman tallied two assists in Tuesday's win over the Coyotes.
Analysis: The 31-year-old refuses to slow down. The two helpers boost his total to 15 points in 25 games, which incredibly, is only the third-best total among Calgary blueliners.

Flames' Wideman Notches Goal In Loss

News: Dennis Wideman tallied another goal in Thursday's loss to the Blackhawks.
Analysis: The goal was Dennis Wideman's eighth of the season, tops among NHL defensemen and doubling his total from the 2013-14 campaign. Wideman has shown above-average offensive ability in the past, but he's a prime sell-high candidate if ever there was one. His current 17.9 shooting percentage is 13 points above his career rate, suggesting he's had an unusual amount of bounces go his way this season.

Dennis Wideman

Flames' Wideman Scores Pair

News: Dennis Wideman scored twice in a 4-3 shootout victory over the Ducks on Tuesday.
Analysis: Dennis Wideman and his fellow defenseman have been hard to stop this season, as Wideman now has seven goals in 19 games, tied for the league lead among blueliners. That's nearly double his total of four goals from last season, a mark he needed 46 games to achieve.

Dennis Wideman, D, CGY Points Keep Coming For Flames' Wideman

Dennis Wideman

Points Keep Coming For Flames' Wideman

News: Dennis Wideman collected one assist and attempted six shots on goal in Sunday's win over the Canadiens. The blueliner also chipped in two hits, two penalty minutes and five blocked shots in the victory.
Analysis: Dennis Wideman saw his streak of four consecutive games with a goal come to an end last week, but with two assists over his last three contests, he's continued to pay dividends for his fantasy owners. The 31-year-old is enjoying a nice late-career resurgence through the Flames' first 12 games, collecting five goals and three assists.

Dennis Wideman

Flames' Wideman Lights Lamp Again

News: Dennis Wideman extended his goal streak to four games with a power-play tally in Saturday's loss to Washington.
Analysis: A defenseman scoring a goal in four straight games. How often do you see that? In just nine games this season, Dennis Wideman has already surpassed the four goals he recorded in 46 games last season. The goal-scoring will cool down, but being a fixture on the team's power play, Wideman should continue to put up points. Averaging 21:37 of ice time per game, Wideman is counted on as a key contributor to the Flames' blueline.

Flames' Wideman Scores For Third Straight Game

News: Dennis Wideman scored a goal in Thursday's 5-0 pasting of the Hurricanes, his fourth in five games.
Analysis: Ever since a benching early in the season, Dennis Wideman has caught fire. He has five points in his last five games and is finally showing why Calgary gave him such a big contract. Keep him rolling, as he and the Flames have been surprisingly good this season.

Dennis Wideman, D, CGY Flames' Wideman Finds Net Again

Dennis Wideman

Flames' Wideman Finds Net Again

News: Dennis Wideman found the net on one of his three shot attempts in Tuesday's 2-1 loss to the Bolts.
Analysis: The tally was Dennis Wideman's third in four games, and his first power-play point of the season. He's rebounded well since being a healthy scratch Oct. 9, and is just one goal off matching his output from his injury-shortened 2013-14 campaign.

Dennis Wideman, D, CGY Flames' Wideman Notches Two Points In Win

Dennis Wideman

Flames' Wideman Notches Two Points In Win

News: Dennis Wideman had a goal, an assist, four shots, two hits, and was a plus-2 in Sunday's win over the Jets.
Analysis: Quite the night from Dennis Wideman, who logged 23:19 of ice time in the victory. He now has three goals and five points in his last three games after opening the season with three straight scoreless efforts. If he manages to stay healthy, there is no reason the offensive defenseman can't net 40-50 points with the Flames in 2014-15.

Flames' Wideman Scores In Win

News: Dennis Wideman scored the opening goal in a 2-1 overtime win over Chicago on Wednesday.
Analysis: Dennis Wideman has had a rough start to the season, getting benched for a game, but that seems to have woken him up. He has one point in five games, but should up that production at least a little bit as time goes on.

Wideman Back In For Flames On Saturday

News: Dennis Wideman will reenter the lineup Saturday against the Blues, Randy Sportak of the Calgary Sun reports.
Analysis: Dennis Wideman was sent to the press box for a game after a dismal showing in the Flames' opener, but it appears it was just a one-game banishment. The team will count on Wideman to be a stabilizing force in their top four this season, after he supplied four goals and 17 assists in 46 games in 2013-14.

Flames' Wideman Scratched For Thursday's Game

News: Dennis Wideman will be scratched from the lineup Thursday against the Oilers, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.
Analysis: The highest-paid player on the Flames' roster, Dennis Wideman had a brutal game in Wednesday's season-opening loss to the Canucks, particularly on his own end. He also took a big hit from the Canucks' Alex Burrows in the game, though it sounds like he'll only be sitting due to performance reasons rather than injury. In any case, the Flames are hoping the night out of the lineup will motivate Wideman to deliver a bounce-back performance his next time out. Raphael Diaz will fill in for Wideman on the blue line, pairing up with Ladislav Smid.

Flames Shut Down Wideman For Season

News: Dennis Wideman (upper body) has been shut down for the rest of the season, Wes Gilbertson of the Calgary Sun reports.
Analysis: With the Flames not playing for anything meaningful in the season's final week, there was no need to return Dennis Wideman to action when he's not yet 100 percent healthy. He finishes the 2013-14 campaign with 21 points and a minus-15 rating over 46 games.

Flames' Wideman Unlikely To Return This Season

News: Coach Bob Hartley said Dennis Wideman's (upper body) rehab program has been shut down, making him unlikely to return this season.
Analysis: With the defenseman showing limited progress in his recovery after sustaining the upper-body injury in early March, the team decided that it would probably be in Dennis Wideman's best interest to pack it in for the season. In suiting up in just 46 games, Wideman's numbers look almost identical to his strike-shortened 2012-13 campaign. He finishes with 21 points and a minus-15 rating.

Flames' Wideman Out Friday

News: Dennis Wideman is out for Friday's game against the Stars.
Analysis: Dennis Wideman may be facing a long-term absence, so his Friday status comes as no surprise. With the Flames out of contention, it wouldn't be shocking if we don't see Wideman again this season.

Flames' Wideman Still Sidelined

News: Dennis Wideman (upper body) may be out long-term.
Analysis: We'll await further specifics, but this nugget suggests that Dennis Wideman -- who last played on March 5 -- will miss Wednesday's game against the Ducks, at a minimum.

Dennis Wideman

Calgary's Wideman Out Monday

News: Dennis Wideman (upper body) will miss Monday's matchup with Los Angeles, according to the Calgary Herald.
Analysis: The defenseman' injury is still a bit of a mystery, but it will keep him out of the lineup another game. With Dennis Wideman one of the highest paid players in Calgary, the Flames certainly don't want to risk further injury amidst a lost season.

Flames' Wideman Out Through The Weekend

News: Dennis Wideman (upper body), who has already been ruled out for Friday's game against the Islanders, will not play Saturday against the Canucks either.
Analysis: It's not clear how long Dennis Wideman will be out, but he will take the weekend off after being injured in Wednesday's game. Consider Wideman questionable for the Flames' next game Monday.

Flames' Wideman Out Friday

News: Dennis Wideman (upper body) will not play Friday against the Islanders, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 reports.
Analysis: Dennis Wideman was injured in Wednesday's game against the Senators, and it appears the setback will cost him at least one contest. Consider Wideman questionable for the Flames' next game Saturday.

Flames' Wideman Likely Out Friday

News: With the Flames recalling defenseman Tyler Wotherspoon on Thursday, Dennis Wideman (upper body) is unlikely to play in Friday's game, Wes Gilbertson of the Edmonton Sun reports.
Analysis: Thursday night's transaction provides a strong hint that Dennis Wideman won't be available Friday, after suffering an upper-body injury in Wednesday's game.
