Giordano scored a goal and two assists while skating a team-high 27:05 in Saturday's 7-4 victory over the Canucks on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

The 35-year-old is logging a ton of minutes to start the season, playing at least 25:46 in each of the first two games. On Saturday, he was also valuable in the scoring categories, recording three even-strength points. If he continues to play this much, owners should expect a lot of production this season.

Giordano skated for a game-high 25:46 in Wednesday's 5-2 road loss to the Canucks to open the season.

EDGE Analysis

Playing on his 35th birthday, Giordano failed to etch his name into either the goal or assist columns, but he saw close to a full-minute increase in playing time against his final output in the 2017-18 season. It's an extremely limited sample, but if Giordano continues to see so much rink run, the points will surely follow in heaps. He registered 13 goals and 25 assists over a full season in 2017-18.

Giordano picked up two assists, one on the power play, in Saturday's 4-3 preseason loss to the Oilers.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran defenseman hasn't topped 40 points since he had his breakout 21-goal, 56-point performance in 2015-16, but the Flames' young and improving forward group could help Giordano get back to that level, particularly if the power play becomes more potent -- Giordano's 10 points with the man advantage last year was his lowest total in five seasons.

Giordano had a goal and an assist to go with four shots in Monday's 5-4 overtime preseason loss to Winnipeg.

EDGE Analysis

While most of Calgary's top players got the night off, the defensive pairing of Giordano and T.J. Brodie provided a steady hand on the blue line. The team's 34-year-old captain flashed the offensive skills that have helped him score 38 or more points in each of the past five seasons.

Giordano potted two goals in Sunday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Bruins, the Associated Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

Giordano's first goal came 21 seconds into the third period, with his second of the day tying the game at 3-3 with just 46.4 seconds remaining. The veteran blueliner should have no problem registering double-digit goals for a sixth straight season in 2018-19.

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.
