The Calgary Flames have a very young team going for them and turned some heads this season. Even with that fact, some of their prospects should make a jump next year and can make the roster that much better.

Though Johnny Gaudreau played the full season for the Flames, he is still considered a prospect as he has played less than 100gp. With how strong of a season Gaudreau had, he made the jump to #1 over 4th overall draft pick Sam Bennett.

Poirier had a great season for his 1st pro season. His season resulted in an appearance in the AHL allstar game this year. Poirier played a few NHL games and will likely make the jump at some point next season.

Michael Ferland may have had the best month for the Flames prospects. Ferland played for the Flames during their playoff run this year and impressed. Ferland made a lot of clutch plays for the Flames. Ferland could be a pleasant surprise for the Flames as he jumps up in the prospect list.

This list contains any skater below 100gp in the regular season and under the age of 26. For goalies it is under 50gp in the regular season and under the age of 26. Ranks 11-20 are on the 2nd page.
