Giordano recorded 13 goals and 38 points in 82 games this season.

EDGE Analysis

It's clear that the 34-year-old blueliner may be on the downslope of his career, but Giordano still logged 24:47 of ice time this season -- a team high. However, he did rack up a career-high 214 shots on goal and consistently played on the power play, where he produced 10 of his points (one goal, nine assists).

Giordano scored a goal and a power-play assist while adding three shots, two hits and a plus-1 rating in Wednesday's 5-1 win over the Sabres.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran defenseman has now matched last season's goal total with 10, and he's on pace for the fifth 40-point campaign of his career after falling one point short in 2016-17. Giordano has been picking up his scoring pace of late, though, tallying three goals and 10 points in his last 12 contests as he tries to lead the Flames into the postseason picture.

Giordano racked up an assist, four shots, two hits and two blocked shots in Tuesday's 5-2 road loss to the Bruins.

EDGE Analysis

Giordano logged 26:35 of ice time with a tick over seven minutes on the power play, so it was rather disappointing that he failed to make a special teams contribution. Still, the puck-moving blueliner hasn't missed a game all season, and he's close to matching the 39-point output that he had through 81 games last season. Don't underestimate the value of year-to-year consistency from a blueliner as far as fantasy games are concerned.

Giordano will not be suspended for Sunday's hit on Hurricanes winger Sebastian Aho, Wes Gilbertson of the Calgary Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

This is great news for the Flames captain, as he will be available Saturday when Calgary hosts Winnipeg in its first game back from the bye week. Giordano is having a solid year, with 21 points, 116 shots, and 94 blocks in 45 games while playing over 24 minutes of ice time. He has a few good upcoming matchups against some struggling defensive teams in the Jets, Sabres, and Oilers, so he should be well-rested enough to add to those totals after the bye.

Giordano contributed an assist and seven shots in Thursday's 4-3 win over Los Angeles.

EDGE Analysis

Giordano's having a quiet year offensively by his lofty standards, but the 34-year-old veteran's come alive with four points in his past four games. Considering Giordano's fired 107 shots on net to go with 18 points through 40 games, it wouldn't be at all surprising to see him pick up the pace in the second half.

Giordano scored twice and was credited with five shots on goal in Sunday's win over Vancouver.

EDGE Analysis

It was quite the night for Giordano, who was also responsible for taking the slapshot that injured Canucks' rookie sensation Brock Boeser (foot). The workhorse blueliner actually saw his lowest ice time (21:22) since mid-November on Sunday, but that didn't stop him from having one of his best games of the season. Giordano was credited with eight shots on goal against the Predators the prior night and you could tell something was brewing. The veteran only has 14 points (six goals) in 34 contests, but he's picked it up lately with six points in his last eight games. His heavy ice time and offensive contributions make him worth owning in most fantasy settings.

Giordano had his team's only goal in a 2-1 shootout loss to Toronto on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Giordano now has a points streak going at two games, but Wednesday marked his first goal in seven games. Making matters worse, he'd gone six games without finding the score sheet prior to starting his streak, and he hasn't scored in three consecutive games this season. Giordano has the talent to produce more regularly, but so far, it hasn't happened in 2017.

As expected, Giordano (personal) will be in the lineup versus St. Louis on Monday, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

EDGE Analysis

Giordano missed some practice time to be with his family after the birth of his child, but will suit up against the Blues. The Flames' blue line looks set to be fully intact as Travis Hamonic (undisclosed) will be back in action as well.

Giordano was absent from practice Friday following the birth of his child, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

EDGE Analysis

Considering the Flames aren't back in action until Monday's clash with St. Louis, Giordano is unlikely to miss any play time. The blueliner eats up big minutes for Calgary (23:59 per game), so replacing him would be a tough task. Fortunately for fantasy owners, that's not something they should have to worry about.

Giordano scored the overtime winner to beat the Penguins 2-1 on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Giordano's starting to stir offensively with points in consecutive games after notching just a goal and two assists in his first 11. Even though his offense hasn't been there until recently, the veteran blueliner has been a tremendous all-around asset thanks to his elite contributions in blocks (37) and time on ice (23:56) coupled with a high shot total for a defenseman (32).
