Dennis Wideman

Goal, Assist For Flames' Wideman

News: Dennis Wideman scored his 14th goal of the season and added an assist in Monday's 5-3 win over the Stars.
Analysis: Dennis Wideman also skated to a plus-2 on this one. With 49 points in 76 games, the 32-year-old rearguard has established a new career high in goals, and sits just one point off the mark of his best season (50 points), achieved in 2008-09 with Boston.

Flames' Wideman Dishes Out Three Assists

News: Dennis Wideman set up three goals as the Flames doubled up the Ducks 6-3 on Wednesday.
Analysis: Dennis Wideman and his defense partner Kris Russell have been some kind of hot lately, combining for 15 points over their last four games. They're getting top-pair duties, as well as time on Calgary's top power-play unit, and make for fantastic plays right now as they continue to fill the void left by Mark Giordano (biceps), who is done for the year.

Dennis Wideman, D, CGY Flames' Wideman Assists Twice Friday

Dennis Wideman

Flames' Wideman Assists Twice Friday

News: Dennis Wideman contributed two assists, with one coming on the power play, in Friday's win over the Red Wings.
Analysis: That's back-to-back two-assist games for Dennis Wideman, who has seen his ice time shoot up the last few contests with Mark Giordano (biceps) out of the picture. Though he's averaging 24:08 TOI for the season, Wideman has topped that mark in five consecutive games, a trend that should continue in light of his hot play. With 41 points on the campaign, the 31-year-old should have a real shot at surpassing his previous career high of 50 points, established in 2008-09 with the Bruins.

Flames' Wideman Tallies Two Helpers

News: Dennis Wideman picked up a pair of assists -- one on the power play -- and registered eight shot blocks Thursday in a shootout win over Boston.
Analysis: Dennis Wideman and defensive partner Kris Russell combined for an outstanding four assists and a ridiculous 23 blocks in this one. As he approaches his 32nd birthday, Wideman's in the midst of one of the best seasons of his career, with 39 points in 63 games. He's got a very real chance at beating his career high of 50, set back in 2008-09 with the Bruins.

Dennis Wideman

Flames' Wideman Dishes Out Two In Loss

News: Dennis Wideman assisted on both of the Flames' goals and put five shots on net in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Wild.
Analysis: Dennis Wideman's resurgent season rolls on, as the blueliner has picked up six points (all helpers) in his last five games. Though he's been on a bit of an assist run of late, Wideman has supplied more diversity in his scoring that most defensemen, with 12 of his 35 points coming on goals. He's worth keeping active in any fantasy league.

Dennis Wideman

Flames' Wideman Helps Out Twice In Win

News: Dennis Wideman registered assists at both 5-on-5 play and on the man advantage in Thursday's loss to the Kings.
Analysis: Dennis Wideman's assists were of the secondary variety and came just 32 seconds apart of each other in the second period. The 31-year-old's resurgent season continues to rage on, as his 32 points are tied for 16th in the NHL among blueliners.

Flames' Wideman Reaches 30-Point Mark

News: Dennis Wideman tallied his 30th point of the season Monday against the Sharks, earning a secondary assist on Jiri Hudler's power-play goal.
Analysis: Dennis Wideman has been quite the asset on the man advantage this season, netting four goals and seven assists to nearly triple his output from 2013-14. The 31-year-old would rank as the highest-scoring blueliner on a number of squads, but with Calgary already getting career seasons from top-pair defensemen Mark Giordano and T.J. Brodie, Wideman ranks only third in blue-line points.

Dennis Wideman

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

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

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.
