July 2021 – Werner has signed a one-year deal with the Calgary Flames. His second AHL campaign was another hot and cold affair, but when the good still outweighs the bad as he finished the year with a 0.908sv%.

With every excuse to be unprepared, he pitched a  cool and calm 40-save shutout in his NHL debut. He will stick with the big club until Grubauer returns from injury, until then he might be able to earn a few more starts than planned off regular backup Francouz.
