Leland Irving has turned his career around this season.
The Flames drafted Irving in the first round of the 2006 Entry Draft, 26th overall, with the expectation that he would be their goalie of the future once Miikka Kiprusoff was no longer around. He struggled as a pro before this season and was demoted last season to the ECHL from the AHL because of poor play. But this year is a different story as he has been outstanding for the Abbotsford Heat. He has 24 wins, five shutouts, a 2.31 GAA and a .912 save percentage. In addition, he has nine shootout wins this season. All in all, Irving has put himself back into the spot of the Flames goalie of the future as he is only 22. Do not forget about him next season in keeper leagues as he will likely challenge Henrik Karlsson for the backup job with the Flames.
