The chances for 30th overall continue to drop as the Flames win another game, at least this time it was against Edmonton. That win evens the season series and essentially knocked the Oil out of the playoffs. It was good to see the first goal for Baertschi, as well as the first-ever NHL goal for Max Reinhart. He’s been working pretty hard lately and it was nice to see him get rewarded.
Calgary remains tied with Carolina at 26th, which if they finished the season now would give Calgary a 10% chance at Seth Jones. That would leave someone like Aleksander Barkov or Valeri Nichushkin to be selected 4th overall.
