|Flaws:||Doesn't have a ton of offensive ability, so he will be reduced to a strict defensive defenseman role at the NHL level. Also needs to be a more disciplined defender.|

Sieloff has recovered from staph infection | 07/04/2014 6:32 PM
NewsPatrick Sieloff is looking forward to making up for lost time now that he's recovered from a staph infection.
ImpactSieloff only played in two AHL games in 2013-14, but he will join the Flames' other prospects for their development camp. "It's so great to be here," he said. "I've been feeling good all summer. There hasn't been any hiccups or anything. For me, this is camp ... it's staying on the ice and staying healthy. I can build confidence off of those two things." He'll need some seasoning in the minors before he'll be ready to compete for a spot with the Flames.

NewsPatrick Sieloff will not return to the OHL Windsor Spitfires.
ImpactThe Flames will send Sieloff to AHL Abbotsford if he fails to make the Flames' opening game roster. "It's just a matter of grooming him the right way," Flames coach Bob Hartley said. "He comes to work every day. This guy, to slow down or stop, it's not part of his vocabulary. Eager to learn. Fun to work with. You talk to him and his eyes are wide open. He grabs everything you tell him." Sieloff is eligible to head to the minors rather than the OHL because he wasn't drafted by an OHL team. He originally was part of the US development program before joining the Spitfires for the 2012-13 campaign.

NewsWearing a full cage to protect his freshly broken cheekbone - but cleared for action - enforcer Patrick Sieloff doesn't plan to change his tactics.
ImpactIt's common knowledge that nothing enrages the enemy more than an agitator with extra protection. "Opponents won't appreciate it so much, but it doesn't matter to me," said Sieloff, with a black eye and a wee scab on his left cheek - courtesy of a punch absorbed Friday in Saskatoon. "That feeds into my game anyway. I like to get them out of their game as much as I can. Let them say whatever they want. I'll deal with it. It's not like I have a choice (about the headgear). Full cage or nothing, I'd play the same way."
