3 Calgary Flames Who Won't Be Traded During 2023 Offseason

The Calgary Flames made some offseason changes to the leadership group as Craig Conroy was recently named general manager of the franchise. Conroy is one of the most respected professionals in the game and he'll have some major decisions to make when it comes to re-tooling the Flames roster on the fly. While some players are likely on their way out, don't expect to see these three players moved this offseason:

Dustin Wolf

The 22-year-old netminder was called out by name by Conroy as someone the team needs to find room for. That doesn't bode well for either Jakob Markstrom or Daniel Vladar who are signed to NHL contracts for next season. Wolf was the best goalie outside of the NHL last season, posting a 2.09 GAA and .932 Sv.% in 55 AHL games. He got in once with the Flames and next season, look for Wolf to be given a much bigger workload.

Nazem Kadri

It kind of goes without saying, but Nazem Kadri will be back. He clashed pretty hard last season with Darryl Sutter and Kadri is one of several Flames players who are happy the bench boss will be changing. There was even talks about Kadri potentially wanting out if things didn't change. In his first season in Calgary, the pesky center put up 56 points in 82 games. A down season no doubt, no let's wait and see what he can produce in his second season with a new voice behind the bench.

Matthew Coronato

The Flames don't have many untouchables, but former first-round pick Matthew Coronato makes the list. The 13th pick from the 2021 draft performed well last season with Harvard of the NCAA and was able to get into the Flames lineup for one game in 2022-23. He'll get a top-nine role in Calgary next season as the fanbase should be very excited for what's to come from Coronato's game.
