Flames head coach Jim Playfair said yesterday the team would carry 22 players into opening night but another two or three may have to start the season on injured reserve.

D Rhett Warrener (knee) is the furthest from a return with a prognosis of another two weeks on the sidelines.

C Stephane Yelle (lower leg) skated alone yesterday and is expected to join his teammates this morning.

F Eric Nystrom hurt his shoulder early in the pre-season but is expected to be reassigned to Omaha once given a clean bill of health.

Both left-winger Eric Godard and defenceman Brad Ference were placed on waivers and, once cleared, can be sent to the AHL.
