The 2021–22 NHL season is right around the corner! The puck drops next week on October 12th, and the Calgary Flames will kick off their season on October 16th against the Edmonton Oilers. Join us for the fourth annual Calgary Flames Over/Under Predictions!
We’ve put together a comprehensive list of things we think might happen for the Flames over the course of the 2021–22 season and marked them up with thresholds we believe are targets for this year. Your job is to decide whether the threshold is realistic. Is Sean Monahan going to bounce back after recovering from a hip injury? Does Johnny Gaudreau reach the point-per-game mark? Does Matthew Tkachuk change his style and keep it clean?
This year, we’re offering a prize to the person who picks the most correct answers by the end of the season. If that happens to be you, you’ll take home a Calgary Flames puck and some TWC stickers to go with it.
Here are the results from past seasons:
We will post regular updates throughout the 2021–22 season as thresholds are reached (if any) to see how predictions are coming along.
