Brian McGrattan picked up 15 penalty minutes in his 2012-13 Calgary Flames debut Sunday.
McGrattan got into his first altercation in 13 months as he won a convincing fight against the Canucks Tom Sestito. McGrattan was so happy that he saluted the crowd, a gesture that got him an extra 10 minutes from the referee in the penalty box. This is McGrattan's second go round with the Flames as he also played 34 games in the 2009-10 season compiling a goal, four points in 86 penalty minutes. McGrattan could be useful in leagues that reward penalty minutes if he manages to maintain a consistent role in the lineup.
