Hudler (illness) will be a game-time decision Saturday against the Oilers, Scott Cruickshank of the Calgary Herald reports.

Hudler was also a game-time decision Tuesday but fought through and tallied two points. Odds are Hudler will be in the lineup, but the pregame skate should give the final say.

Hudler posted a pair of assists -- one on the power play -- and went plus-2 in Tuesday's win over the Sabres.

He'd been iffy coming in with an illness, but certainly looked healthy out there, firing four shots on goal -- his highest shot total since Dec. 16. Unsurprisingly for someone who's been shooting so little, Hudler hasn't been scoring many goals lately -- he has just one in his last 14 games, although he's racked up 10 assists in that span.

Hudler (illness) is taking part in pregame warmups and should be considered on track to play Tuesday against the Sabres, Kristen Odland of the Calgary Herald reports.

Hudler is technically a game-time decision, but all signs point to him playing later in the evening. The Flames should provide an update if he's a last-second scratch, but since he was participating in line rushes with usual mates Johnny Gaudreau and Sean Monahan, he would seem to be good to go.

Hudler is feeling under the weather and will be a game-time decision for Tuesday's game against the Sabres, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 reports.

Per the Flames' official site, coach Bob Hartley noted that if Hudler is unable to play Tuesday, either Sven Baertschi or David Wolf would be in line to fill in for Hudler.

Hudler was not on the ice for Tuesday's practice, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 reports.

It's not been disclosed why Hudler isn't at practice, but this jeopardizes his availability for Tuesday's game against Buffalo. It may be a safer bet to stow him on your bench Tuesday.

Hudler netted his 14th goal of the season Saturday in a 4-3 overtime victory against the Sharks.

Hudler remains a quiet fantasy force, as he has 39 points and a plus-13 in 43 games. He's on pace for the best season of his career, as he should easily top his 57-point output with Detroit in 2008-09.

Hudler (personal) rejoined the Flames for Thursday's practice, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet.ca reports.

Hudler ended up missing Wednesday's game against the Red Wings after his wife went into labor. After witnessing the miracle of life, Hudler looks ready to return to action for Friday's tilt with the Panthers. The winger has been exceptional this season for the Flames, tallying 13 goals and 38 points over 39 games.

Hudler was a last-minute scratch Wednesday as his wife went into labor, the Associated Press reports.

Hudler isn't likely to miss any additional time. He's been on a major roll as of late, scoring in 10 of his last 11 games, so feel free to re-insert him into your lineup for Friday's game against Florida.

Hudler recorded an assist in Friday's 2-1 loss to the visiting Islanders, extending his point streak to six games.

Hudler's helper on Johnny Gaudreau's snipe late in the third period was his 11th point in the last 10 games, bringing his season total to a stunning 38 points in 39 games. It's hard to fathom Hudler sitting 12th overall (!) in league scoring at the halfway point of the season, but here we are. At this rate, he'll easily obliterate his career high of 57 points set in 2008-2009 with the Red Wings and could prove to be one of the bigger bargains in the league with a very friendly $4 million cap hit. Enjoy the production.

Hudler handed out two assists in Monday's win over the Kings.

Hudler earned a well-deserved second star for his efforts, as he used a pair of crafty feeds to help Curtis Glencross and Markus Granlund find the back of the net in the first period. The 30-year-old has collected six assists over his last four games, reviving what had been a dormant Flames attack.
