CALGARY FLAMES

LAST SEASON: 45-30-7, 97 points. Lost to Anaheim Ducks in Western Conference semifinals.

COACH: Bob Hartley (14 NHL seasons, 428-321-61-52).

ADDED: RW Michael Frolik, D Dougie Hamilton.

LOST: D Raphael Diaz, RW Brian McGrattan.

PLAYER TO WATCH: Jonas Hiller and Karri Ramo. The goaltenders are serviceable stopgaps until prospects Joni Ortio and Jon Gillies are ready to make the leap to the NHL. In 2014-15, Hiller compiled a 26-19-4 record with a 2.36 goals-against average and .918 save percentage in 52 games, while Ramo was 15-9-3 with 2.60 GAA and .912 save percentage.

OUTLOOK: A year ago, Flames won nine of 13 games in overtime, won four of seven shootouts and had 10 come-from-behind victories. Calgary would love to play with the lead more and see if they can advance farther that the semifinals in the stacked Western Conference.
