Wideman collected one assist and attempted six shots on goal in Sunday's win over the Canadiens. The blueliner also chipped in two hits, two penalty minutes and five blocked shots in the victory.

Wideman saw his streak of four consecutive games with a goal come to an end last week, but with two assists over his last three contests, he's continued to pay dividends for his fantasy owners. The 31-year-old is enjoying a nice late-career resurgence through the Flames' first 12 games, collecting five goals and three assists.

Wideman extended his goal streak to four games with a power-play tally in Saturday's loss to Washington.

A defenseman scoring a goal in four straight games. How often do you see that? In just nine games this season, Wideman has already surpassed the four goals he recorded in 46 games last season. The goal-scoring will cool down, but being a fixture on the team's power play, Wideman should continue to put up points. Averaging 21:37 of ice time per game, Wideman is counted on as a key contributor to the Flames' blueline.

Wideman scored a goal in Thursday's 5-0 pasting of the Hurricanes, his fourth in five games.

Ever since a benching early in the season, Wideman has caught fire. He has five points in his last five games and is finally showing why Calgary gave him such a big contract. Keep him rolling, as he and the Flames have been surprisingly good this season.

Wideman found the net on one of his three shot attempts in Tuesday's 2-1 loss to the Bolts.

The tally was Wideman's third in four games, and his first power-play point of the season. He's rebounded well since being a healthy scratch Oct. 9, and is just one goal off matching his output from his injury-shortened 2013-14 campaign.

Wideman had a goal, an assist, four shots, two hits, and was a plus-2 in Sunday's win over the Jets.

Quite the night from Wideman, who logged 23:19 of ice time in the victory. He now has three goals and five points in his last three games after opening the season with three straight scoreless efforts. If he manages to stay healthy, there is no reason the offensive defenseman can't net 40-50 points with the Flames in 2014-15.

Wideman scored the opening goal in a 2-1 overtime win over Chicago on Wednesday.

Wideman has had a rough start to the season, getting benched for a game, but that seems to have woken him up. He has one point in five games, but should up that production at least a little bit as time goes on.

Wideman will reenter the lineup Saturday against the Blues, Randy Sportak of the Calgary Sun reports.

Wideman was sent to the press box for a game after a dismal showing in the Flames' opener, but it appears it was just a one-game banishment. The team will count on Wideman to be a stabilizing force in their top four this season, after he supplied four goals and 17 assists in 46 games in 2013-14.

Wideman will be scratched from the lineup Thursday against the Oilers, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

The highest-paid player on the Flames' roster, Wideman had a brutal game in Wednesday's season-opening loss to the Canucks, particularly on his own end. He also took a big hit from the Canucks' Alex Burrows in the game, though it sounds like he'll only be sitting due to performance reasons rather than injury. In any case, the Flames are hoping the night out of the lineup will motivate Wideman to deliver a bounce-back performance his next time out. Raphael Diaz will fill in for Wideman on the blue line, pairing up with Ladislav Smid.
