With Ramo sidelined, Flames recall Thiessen


With Karri Ramo sidelined due to a lower body injury, the Calgary Flames have recalled Brad Thiessen from the American Hockey League’s Adirondack Flames.

Ramo left Saturday night’s 4-0 win over the Edmonton Oilers 58 seconds into the first period.

Ramo is listed as day-to-day.

Thiessen is 10-14-7 to go along with a 3.02 G.A.A. and a .905 save percentage in 32 games with Adirondack this season.

“It’s a fun time of the year. I’ve been following the #Flames and their run to the playoffs,” said Thiessen per The Calgary Herald’s Scott Cruickshank. “This is the week to be here.”

The 29-year-old signed with the Flames as a free agent last summer.

Calgary returns to action on Tuesday night when they play host to the Arizona Coyotes.

Watch what might’ve been Rick Nash’s last Blue Jackets goal

1 Comment

If today was Rick Nash’s final game as a member of the Columbus Blue Jackets, he closed it out with a loss and a highlight goal. Nash got the Blue Jackets on the board first in the first period with a shorthanded goal on Penguins rookie netminder Brad Thiessen.

Check out what might wind up being the final highlight in Nash’s Columbus career.

After the game, Aaron Portzline of The Columbus Dispatch heard from Nash about his trade deadline limbo status and he’s still preaching the company line (via Twitter).

“It’s been a great time living in Columbus. I’m a Blue Jacket today and we’re going to do everything we can to move forward as a team. Like I said the other day, these fans deserve a winning team. They’re the ones that have been the most patient.”

When Nash was asked about the possibility entered his mind that today’s 4-2 loss to Pittsburgh was his final game as a Blue Jacket, Portzline says Nash answered quickly, “Not at all.”
