Top-6 Offensive winger with PP upside.

Oct 2020 – Mangiapane signed a two-year 2.425M AAV as a bridge deal. Andrew fit in very well on a line with Tkachuk and Backlund or at times with Lindholm. Mangiapane has been terrific at 5on5 and if he ever grabs consistent second-line PP minutes, he could improve his stock to be a 50-60 pt player. The 5on5 time did improve from around 13 mins a game to between 14-18 mins at times. He’s on the rise and will be an important versatile forward for Calgary moving forward. – Joel Henderson
Jan 2020 – All signs point to Flames management being incredibly happy with Andrew. He continues to win over opportunities and with the departure of Michael Frolik, that will most likely continue. There has been moments in select games where he has been stapled to the bench for the third period, but he is on the upswing. He is normally seeing consistent minutes with Matthew Tkachuk and Elias Lindholm. Decent linemates. Buy Now if you haven’t already. – Joel Henderson
Sept 2019 – Andrew Mangiapane signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Flames. He finished the 2018-19 season by grabbing 12 points in his final 31 games and a +15 over that span while playing around 10-12 minutes a night. Mangiapane’s 5v5 numbers are quite strong and he should continue to push Flames’ staff to give him more minutes moving forward. At this point, he looks to be a permanent full-time Flame and would need to go through waivers to head back to the AHL. While he has consistently seen most minutes with Mark Jankowski as his C, Mangiapane could be a dark horse candidate to move into the Top-Six especially with Tkachuk still unsigned. He is one to watch. – Joel Henderson
Feb 2019 – Things are finally clicking for the undersized winger. He’s still only getting around 10 minutes a night but the puck has gone in for him three times in the last seven games. With the depth of Calgary it’ll still be an injury that’ll give him more minutes and sadly he could be sitting in the press box depending on what the deadline brings. Fantasy owners should be happy that he is proving he can score. – Joel Henderson
Feb 2018 – Mangiapane has seen some third line action but since being recalled in early January hasn’t seen anything more than fourth-line duties. No PP. No PK. He still remains a great option if an injury happens on the left side and has been showing more comfortability in the minutes he’s getting. Fantasy owners just have to be patient. The signs are still there that he can be an effective Top-9 winger. – Joel Henderson
Nov 2018 – He returned from injury and gets the NHL call up. There’s been a lot of talk about reuniting him with Jankowski and Hathaway for a line. That doesn’t scream “offensive opportunity,” but they did have tons of success at the AHL level last season. His ice time will most likely be low unless an injury happens. – Joel Henderson
Oct 2018 – After an outstanding AHL season from Mangiapane, he was in tough to win a NHL job. There was one LW job open and it seems Dillon Dube slid past Mangiapane into that slot. While he did impress in training camp and was there until the last cut, it still hurts. Being a LW in Calgary is tough with Gaudreau, Tkachuk, Bennett and now Dube playing both C and LW at times. Calgary could have chose to keep Andrew as the 13th F but this way he can still play a lot. How does this affect his future? He will most likely be a first call up due to injury. Mangiapane should use this time to work on his strength and edging as he could still improve upon changing his shot angle from time to time and being more elusive. – Joel Henderson
Mar 2018 – Stockton announced that Mangiapane is out for the rest of the season due to shoulder surgery. He laced up for 10 games with Calgary from late Dec till late Feb. He was used sparingly by the coach, mostly gathering third/fourth line minutes and zero special teams. He showed flashes of creativity but spent most of his time board battling and chasing on dump ins. He’s had about as great of a season as you can expect from the sixth-round selection; jumping his AHL point totals by five, in 27 fewer games. He became an offense catalyst who didn’t slow down when his linemates were called up. Calgary doesn’t have great depth of NHL-ready wingers so Mangiapane has a strong case to make to begin the year for 2018-19. – Joel Henderson
Jan 2018 – In his NHL debut, he slotted on the fourth line, receiving 7:25 ice time. He could have spent the entirety of 2017-18 down in the AHL but here he is, due to injury. Flames have been trying multiple different people on the Top PP but others have had to earn their way with the coaching staff. Mangiapane does have the offensive creativity to put some points on the board as long as he’s not on the 4th line. – Joel Henderson
Oct 2017 – Due to early season chemistry with Jankowski and the demoted Hathaway, Mangiapane finds himself leading the Heat and the entire AHL with 12 points in seven games while also extending his point streak to seven games. Flames could certainly use another offensive winger with firepower and if he can show consistency, he could be an option moving forward. At this point, there is no reason to rush him. He has contributed multiple different ways as well; batting down pucks creating turnovers and sniping on occation. I’d expect him to slow down a little bit but he is rolling on the top pair and top PP. – Joel Henderson
Sept 2017 – Mangiapane had a good rookie season for Stockton. Whether he likes it or not, he will find 2017/18 to be a battle for ice time and favor. He matches up well against top lines and still uses his creativity to create. What remains to be seen is if he can find another gear and consistently dominate. When Stockton dumps the puck in too often and Andrew has to battle in the corners, he struggles. The puck needs to be on his stick and he needs to have significant PP minutes, which he should continue to see in the AHL. Expect a slight uptick in PPG for Mangiapane in the AHL. – Joel Henderson
Jan 2017 – When the calendar flipped to 2017, Mangiapane had 22 points (9g,13a) in 28 games for Stockton. In the month of January, things dried up for the Heat, losing seven of ten. Andrew struggled to put up points, only buring one goal and zero assists over his nine games played. He was among the leaders in shots with 15, but whichever line he found himself on, was inconsistent. Hopefully he can snap out of this funk. He does have some ability to use his shifty edgework to create his own chances in the offensive zone, but wasn’t a good month for results. – Joel Henderson
Nov 2016: His early success has come from being placed on a line with vets, as well as receiving early powerplay time. While he still has pro lessons to learn, he has been able to continue his ways creating scoring chances; stringing together nine points in his first seven games. – Joel Henderson
Oct 2016 – Mangiapane has impressed with his shot, his ability to retreive and control the puck in the offensive zone, and his speed. He is not NHL ready though. You should expect him to play in a number of situations in Stockton; getting time on the PP and creating chemistry with other top prospects (Jankowski, Poirier). He won’t be able to create the same way he did with Barrie until he adjusts to the pro style of game. He might look underwhelming until that happens. – Joel Henderson
Mar 2016 – Calgary Flames sign Mangiapane to an ELC. He finished the 15/16 year with 1.8 PPG (51-55-106) and was sixth in league scoring. In an OHL Coaches poll, he was also voted most underrated player, best shootout shooter, and best skater in the Eastern Conference. This highlights the overall offensive capabilities that the coaches believe exist in Andrew. The celebration begins as Barrie begins their first round match up against Mississauga.
Jan 2016 – Mangiapane’s hat-trick gives him 30 goals in 38 games so far this season. He has 61 total points in that span.
Jan 2016 – Barrie exploded against North Bay on Jan 2. Andrew recorded six points (1-5-6, +6) in a 12-2 victory. This moves him back into the top 20 in OHL scoring and second in team scoring.
Nov 2015 – Last season Andrew tied for seventh in scoring in the OHL. This year he is currently sixth. After the season he had last year, it’s a lofty goal to say to a prospect, “Ok, now go back and have a better one”, but that’s exactly his goal. – Joel Henderson
June 2015 – The Calgary Flames selected re-entry forward Andrew Mangiapane with the 166th pick of the 2015 NHL Entry Draft. Brendan Ross
June 2015 – Mangiapane was passed over in the 2014 NHL entry draft but these shuns aren’t really new to him after experiencing the same thing in his OHL draft year. He eventually earned a spot on the Barrie roster in training camp and has never looked back. Andrew is an extremely hard worker and never gives up on a play, this led to him producing over 40 goals and 100 points in 68 OHL games this past season. Mangiapane is always buzzing around the puck and is in excellent position.. His biggest issue likely lies in his size but his offensive production doesn’t lie. Mangapaine attended the Arizona Coyotes development camp in 2014 and even made it to the first cuts of the main camp. Benjamin Gallant
