Sven Baertschi LW VAN 26 Days

Baertschi was traded to the Canucks on Monday in exchange for a future second-round pick, TSN's Bob McKenzie reports.

A former first-round selection by the Flames in 2011, Baertschi made the NHL squad out of training camp in 2013-14 but wasn't able to maintain a spot after tallying 11 points over 26 games. He failed to break camp with the Flames this season and didn't make much of his opportunity when injuries resulted in his promotion to the big club. His pedigree still made him intriguing to many organizations, so the Flames decided to part with him before his value completely bottomed out. Still only 22 years old, Baertschi could unlock his full potential with the move to the Canucks, though he'll likely have to prove himself at AHL Utica first.

Baertschi was reassigned to AHL Adirondack on Thursday, Scott Cruickshank of the Calgary Herald reports.

Baertschi had appeared in just one of the Flames' five games since his Jan. 26 call-up. With Curtis Glencross due to return next week, Baertschi's chances of finding ice time would have grown even more scarce. Moving the winger to the minors will allow him to see more consistent duty.

The Flames have recalled Baertschi from AHL Adirondack, the team's official site reports.

Baertschi -- who was sent to Adirondack (where he has recorded 17 points in 28 games) back in December -- has notched three helpers in 14 games with the big club to date. He'll bolster the Flames' depth at left wing following the team's return from the NHL's All-Star break.

Baertschi was reassigned to AHL Adirondback on Tuesday,'s Aaron Vickers reports.

Baertschi's demotion paves the way for Mason Raymond (upper body) to rejoin the lineup after an extended absence. The young winger seemed to perform more effectively during his latest stint with the Flames, but with only three points over 14 games, it was hard for the suddenly-healthy squad to keep him in the fold.

Baertschi set up both of Paul Byron's goals and went plus-1 despite skating just 10:12 in Thursday's win over the Coyotes.

Thin ice time for Baertschi, who was making his return from an illness that'd kept him out of Monday's game, but he made the most of it, as these were his first points of the year. The 13th overall pick in 2011, Baertschi has a ton of offensive upside, but has been slow to realize it.

Baertschi (illness) will return to the Flames lineup for their game on Wednesday against the Coyotes, Pat Sternberg of Sportsnet 960 reports.

Baertschi has missed a good portion of the season already with a groin injury and now this recent illness. The 22-year-old winger has struggled in his first four seasons with the Flames and his first four games of this season haven't gone much better. He has failed to register a point and is a minus-4 rating.

Baertschi finished with no points and a minus-3 rating in Saturday's 6-4 win over the Panthers.

On an afternoon in which seemingly every Calgary skater found the scoresheet, Baertschi did more harm than good in his 7:10 of ice time. In his four games since his Nov. 2 call-up, Baertschi has failed to tally a single point, a troubling development considering that the opportunities have generally been plentiful for a potent Flames attack. If he doesn't start producing quickly, Baertschi could find himself headed back to AHL Adirondack before long.

Baertschi was recalled from AHL Adirondack on Sunday.

Baertschi has three assists and six penalty minutes in ten games with AHL Adirondack this season, and will now add some depth to the Flames' forwards. The 2011 first-round pick will replace Joe Colborne on the roster, who was placed on injured reserve Sunday.

Baertschi was reassigned to AHL Adirondack on Sunday.

Baertschi, once the most prized prospect in the organization, has spent most of the last year in the AHL and appears to be doing the same in 2014-15. He also is in GM Brian Burke's doghouse often, which doesn't bode well for his future in Calgary.
