With Markstrom's return, the team has assigned goaltender Dustin Wolf to the AHL's Calgary Wranglers.

The 22-year-old has appeared in five games with the Flames this season, recording an .893 save percentage and and 3.46 GAA.
Markstrom's good to go. Dan Vladar played -really- well in his absence. 0.912 save percentage in three starts and kept Calg in periods they were being thoroughly outplayed. #Flames https://t.co/cnYrxxdYnl— Salim Nadim Valji (@salimvalji) January 21, 2024
