Calle Jarnkrok didn’t quite gel with the Calgary Flames in 2021-22

On paper, it made complete sense. With the Calgary Flames heading towards the post-season and needing some forward depth, they looked to the lowly Seattle Kraken and acquired Swedish centre Calle Jarnkrok. A right shot centre who is Elias Lindholm’s first cousin, Jarnkrok seemed to fit the Flames’ needs like a glove.

Flames' Calle Jarnkrok: Gets first goal with Calgary

Jarnkrok scored a goal and added two hits in Thursday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Oilers in Game 5. In his 29th appearance as a Flame, Jarnkrok was finally able to tickle the twine with a second-period tally. The 30-year-old added three assists, 19 shots on net, 16 hits and a minus-1 rating in 12 playoff appearances. He's set to be an unrestricted free agent this summer, and while his defense was solid after he was traded from the Kraken, the Flames have a number of other priorities to attend to before potentially getting a deal done with Jarnkrok.

Flames' Calle Jarnkrok: Assists in consecutive games

Jarnkrok posted an assist, two hits and two PIM in Tuesday's 5-4 overtime win over the Predators. Jarnkrok set up linemate Dillon Dube for a goal at 13:14 of the second period. It's taken some time, but Jarnkrok finally looks to be settling in with the Flames after he was traded from the Kraken in March. The 30-year-old Swede has returned to the 30-point mark for the fifth year in his career, and he's added 100 shots on net and a minus-14 rating through 64 contests this season.

Flames' Calle Jarnkrok: Snaps slump with helper

Jarnkrok provided an assist in Saturday's 6-3 win over the Canucks. Jarnkrok set up Dillon Dube on the first of his two goals in the contest. It's been a tough run for Jarnkrok with the Flames -- he's been limited to three assists in 14 appearances since he was traded from the Kraken. Through 63 games overall, he has 29 points, 100 shots on net, and a minus-15 rating. The Swede will likely continue to play in a third-line role with time on the second power-play unit, but he hasn't done enough on offense with his new team to warrant much fantasy attention.

Flames' Calle Jarnkrok: Helps out on power play

Jarnkrok posted a power-play assist in Thursday's 3-2 shootout loss to the Kings. Jarnkrok picked up just his second assist in seven games as a Flame when he set up a Johnny Gaudreau tally in the third period.

Flames' Calle Jarnkrok: Earns first helper with new team

Jarnkrok logged an assist, three shots on goal and a pair of hits in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Canucks. Jarnkrok set up Noah Hanifin for the opening tally in a game the Flames controlled from the start. The 30-year-old Jarnkrok has slotted in as the third-line center with his new team after seeing top-six minutes with the Kraken. He's up to 27 points, 86 shots on net and a minus-14 rating through 51 appearances. With some time on the second power-play unit -- at the expense of Sean Monahan -- fantasy managers should see if Jarnkrok can click on offense with his new teammates.
