Good to go.
Sam Bennett declared himself healthy and ready to return tomorrow when the Flames host the red-hot Florida Panthers to close out a mini, two-game homestand.
Bennett was back on the ice with his teammates for the first time today after suffering a lower-body injury on Saturday in Los Angeles, and confirmed he's back at 100% after having a few days to recuperate.
"He felt good out there, felt strong," said Head Coach Bill Peters. "Hopefully that's a good sign for tomorrow. We'll see how he reacts overnight, but I think he's going to be in."
Meanwhile, Johnny Gaudreau did not skate, as he's been battling a "sickness" over the past few days.
Bennett took Gaudreau's place on the top line today, but No. 13 is expected to be available for tomorrow's game.
Without their leading point-getter in the fold, the Flames deployed the following forward line combinations and D pairs at practice:
Sam Bennett - Sean Monahan - Elias Lindholm
Matthew Tkachuk - Mikael Backlund - Michael Frolik
Andrew Mangiapane - Derek Ryan - Tobias Rieder
Milan Lucic - Mark Jankowski - Austin Czarnik
Mark Giordano - TJ Brodie
Noah Hanifin - Travis Hamonic
Oliver Kylington - Rasmus Andersson
