The hearing would be moot if the Flames and Colborne agree to terms before it starts. The arbitration process can be tough on a player as he has to sit there and listen to all the reasons the team feels like he's not worth as much as he claims. "I've seen a few guys go through the whole situation," Colborne said. "I've heard when you go in there and your agents are talking, you feel like the biggest human alive. You feel like you're a superhero. And then the team comes in and you don't feel quite so big after all, and you come out of like you've been through the ringer."

"I think I have a lot of wasted energy in my stride, and it's just not very efficient, so that's something I'm try to fix up. Just trying to become faster and, overall, a better skater."

Arnold had 14 goals and 53 points in 40 games with Boston College last season and was also solid without the puck.

"I've just got to make sure I follow in their footsteps and do what they've been doing. They said you need to be strong in your legs, definitely work out your legs. And you don't need to be too big in your upper body because you won't be able to stickhandle that well. Just a lot of great pointers from a lot of great guys and I really appreciate it.

Flames prospect Johnny Gaudreau has been chosen as one of five finalists for the ESPY award - ESPN's version of the Academy Awards - as the top male college athlete.
Calgary Sun

Impact
The honour is a slam dunk for Gaudreau, an offensive dynamo with 36 goals and 80 points in 40 games for Boston College before turning pro for the Flames season finale. The winger, who'll celebrate his 21st birthday next month, has a legitimate shot to be a full-time NHLer as early as next season. His size is an issue - the Flames are fooling nobody by listing him as 5-foot-9 - but Gaudreau's wizardry with the puck is obvious. After scoring a goal in his NHL debut, Gaudreau joined the U.S. team for the world championships and racked up two goals and 10 points in eight games. "It gave me a lot more confidence," Gaudreau said. "I learned a lot out there playing with NHL guys, playing against NHL guys. Getting to play against (Alex) Ovechkin and (Jaromir) Jagr - I think Jagr was playing in the NHL before I was even born - is something pretty special. I think it's going to help me in the long run."

Impact
This is an excellent signing for the Flames as he can handle a lot of shots, which he will undoubtedly see in Calgary.

Bollig, who registered a mere 14 points in 125 NHL games with the Hawks, may be able to land a slightly bigger role in Calgary than he had on a loaded Chicago squad but he still should not be high on anyone's fantasy radar.

News
The Calgary Flames have selected Kingston Frontenac star forward Sam Bennett with the fourth overall pick in Friday's NHL entry draft.
Rotoworld.com

Impact
Sam Bennett is among the class of 2014's fiercest competitors. The six-foot, 178 pound center is an elite playmaker and ferocious forechecker, keeping opponents consistently on their toes. Bennett had a breakout season in the 2013-14 OHL season, notching 36 goals and 91 points in just 57 games. He has the enviable ability to elevate his play in crunch time, using guts and talent to be a game breaker. The 18 year-old plays in all situations, and many believe he has the tools and drive to be a Jonathan Toews-type player. Bennett is a quick, creative and versatile forward, able to draw in opponents when he has the puck, and then make difficult passes through ifted vision and awareness. Bennett needs to get bigger and stronger, but it should not take long for him to make the leap to the NHL. He will make a dynamite one-two punch with Sean Monahan, possibly as early as this upcoming season.
