      Vladar will undergo season-ending hip surgery.

      Vladar's season has abruptly ended as the Czech netminder will undergo hip surgery. The 26-year-old backstop has struggled tremendously this season, showcasing an unimpressive 3.62 GAA and .882 SV% in 20 games (8-9-2). Dustin Wolf will likely stay with the Flames for the remainder of the season, backing up Jacob Markstrom.

      Vladar will start Tuesday's game against the Avalanche.

      Vladar will get the surprise nod on Tuesday after Jacob Markstrom was scratched from his previously scheduled start due to a lower-body injury. Vladar will be hoping to bounce back from a rough performance on Sunday, when he surrendered seven goals in a blowout loss to the Hurricanes. Vladar owns an underwhelming .885 SV% on the season to go along with an 8-8-2 record. Things won't get any easier from him on Tuesday as he's set to take on Nathan MacKinnon and the Colorado Avalanche.

      Vladar (lower body) has been activated off Injured Reserve.

      Vladar has not played since January 20th, serving as a backup to Jacob Markstrom, and has been activated after being on IR for the last week. The Flames recalled Dustin Wolf from the Calgary Wranglers (AHL) earlier this week before reassigning him back on Friday morning. Vladar owns an ugly 3.27 GAA and .888 SV% in 16 games (7-7-2) this season.

      Vladar (lower body) has been placed on the Injured Reserve Friday.

      Vladar has not played since January 20th, serving as a backup to Jacob Markstrom, but will be out of the lineup for at least a week after being placed on IR with a lower-body injury on Friday. The Flames have recalled Dustin Wolf from the Calgary Wranglers (AHL) to replace Vladar, who owns an ugly 3.27 GAA and .888 SV% in 16 games (7-7-2).

      Vladar will start Thursday vs. Toronto.

      After a stellar performance in Vladar's last outing, the Flames feel confident not rushing Jacob Markstrom back into the lineup from a minor injury. Vladar saved 23 of 25 shots (.920 SV%) in a 3-2 victory on Tuesday and will start again on Thursday against the Toronto Maple Leafs. The Flames have won four straight but are +120 home underdogs against the Maple Leafs, riding a four-game losing streak (0-3-1).

      Vladar will start Tuesday vs. the Coyotes.

      The Flames have recalled Dustin Wolf as Jacob Markstrom is day-to-day with a lower-body injury, but they will turn to Vladar on Tuesday against the Arizona Coyotes. The Flames are -148 home favourites against a Coyotes club they defeated 6-2 less than a week away with Markstrom between the pipes. Vladar will make his first start since January 7th, a 4-3 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks when he allowed four goals on 20 shots (.800 SV%).

      Vladar will start Thursday's game in Nashville.

      Vladar will get the surprise nod in Nashville on Thursday, making his first appearance since Jacob Markstrom returned from a finger injury on December 18th. Vladar was solid his last time out, stopping 31 of the 33 shots he faced enroute to a 4-2 victory over the Lightning. This presumably sets Vladar up to start a pair of games this weekend as the Flames are set to play a back-to-back on Saturday and Sunday. He draws a difficult matchup on Thursday with the Flames being slight underdogs at +105 in Nashville.

      Vladar will start in Minnesota on Thursday.

      Vladar will be back between the pipes for Calgary on Thursday after conceding the start in each of the last two games to rookie Dustin Wolf. Vladar was lit up by the Avalanche his last time out, surrendering six goals on 38 shots enroute to a 6-5 defeat. He has struggled to take advantage of the extra playing time afforded to him as a result of Jacob Markstrom's injury, registering a woeful .876 SV% and a 3.76 GAA on the season. Vladar and the Flames find themselves as +125 underdogs in Minnesota on Thursday.

      Daniel Vladar will start Monday in Colorado.

      Vladar was relieved by Dustin Wolf in the second period in his last start after allowing three goals on 16 shots (.813 SV%) and will return to the crease on Monday in Colorado against the Avalanche. As a whole, Vladar has been inconsistent this season, sporting an ugly 3.45 GAA and .877 SV% through eight games (4-3-1). In addition, he only has two quality starts (.250 QS%) and has been difficult to rely upon this season. The Flames are +155 road underdogs against an Avalanche team that has lost five of their last six (1-3-2).

      Daniel Vladar will start Tuesday vs. Minnesota.

      With Jacob Markstrom out week-to-week with a fractured finger, Vladar will assume the role of starting goaltender on Tuesday against the Minnesota Wild. The Flames have also recalled Dustin Wolf from the Calgary Wranglers of the AHL and will presumably have the two netminders battle it out for starts while Markstrom is unable to play. Vladar has been inconsistent this season but is coming off his strongest performance to date, a 27-save (.964 SV%) 2-1 overtime victory over the Vegas Golden Knights. The Flames are slight +102 home underdogs against a Wild team that won three straight since their coaching change, outscoring their opposition 13-3.

      Vladar will start Monday's game against the Golden Knights.

      Dan Vladar will make his second consecutive start in Monday night's game against the Golden Knights. Jacob Markstrom was confirmed to start earlier in the day but was a late scratch due to an illness. Vladar owns a 3-2-1 record and an .869 SV% on the season. The Flames are slight -103 home underdogs against a Golden Knights team that, after an 11-0-1 start, is 3-5-1 in their last nine and have been shut out in two of their last three outings (1-2-0), though that line could shift after the news of Markstrom's absence.
