CALGARY - The Flames may have Travis Hamonic back in the lineup on Saturday when they host the Ottawa Senators.
The veteran defenceman has missed the last five games with a lower body injury but was paired up with his usual partner, Noah Hanifin, on Friday. If he is able to return to action, Oliver Kylington and Alexander Yelesin are expected to be healthy scratches on the blueline.
If Hamonic does not play, expect to see Hanifin paired up with Rasmus Andersson and Kylington partnered with Michael Stone.
With an early start time and no morning skate, today's projected lineup is based on the combinations used in Friday's practice at the Scotiabank Saddledome:
Johnny Gaudreau - Sean Monahan - Elias Lindholm
Matthew Tkachuk - Mikael Backlund - Andrew Mangiapane
Milan Lucic - Derek Ryan - Dillon Dube
Tobias Rieder - Mark Jankowski - Michael Frolik
Mark Giordano - TJ Brodie
Noah Hanifin - Travis Hamonic
Michael Stone - Rasmus Andersson
Game time is set for 5:00 p.m. MT, being broadcast on Hockey Night In Canada. Limited tickets are available HERE.
