CALGARY -- Blair Jones and TJ Brodie are expected to make their season debut as the Calgary Flames host the Anaheim Ducks Monday.
Both players were healthy scratches in Calgary's home opener, a 4-1 loss to the San Jose Sharks.
"I've been looking forward to the start of the season for a long time so for me, personally, it's a big deal," Jones said.
Jones, who had four points in 21 games for the Flames after being acquired from the Tampa Bay Lightning in a trade in January, was disappointed to sit out Sunday.
"It's a pretty tough pill to swallow but it's really out of my control," he said. "I'm just going to worry about what I can do and that's play a hard game tonight."
Here’s how the Flames' lineup will likely look Monday night:
Curtis Glencross - Alex Tanguay - Jarome Iginla
Sven Baertschi - Mikael Backlund - Mike Cammalleri
Roman Horak - Matt Stajan - Lee Stempniak
Blake Comeau - Blair Jones - Tim Jackman
Mark Giordano - Jay Bouwmeester
Chris Butler - Dennis Wideman
TJ Brodie - Cory Sarich
Injured: Anton Babchuk, Roman Cervenka
Scratched: Steve Begin, Derek Smith
Bereavement: Jiri Hudler
