CALGARY - Cam Talbot is expected to get the start tonight when the Flames host the Blueshirts at 7:00 p.m. MT.

The 32-year-old has a 2.73 GAA and a .915 save percentage in the 12 games he has appeared in this season. In his last three starts, he has made 106 saves on 112 shots faced.

TJ Brodie, who missed Tuesday's game against the Blackhawks due to sickness, skated with the team this morning and is expected to return to the lineup.

Update at 4:45 p.m. MT: The Flames have acquired a fourth-round pick in the 2020 NHL Draft in exchange for forward Michael Frolik.

The following forward line combinations and D pairs are based off the morning skate, but with Frolik traded to Buffalo, there will obviously be some shuffling prior to puck drop.

Prior to the trade, Zac Rinaldo and Mark Jankowski were expected to be the scratches up front. Now, one of the two will likely play this evening.
