Jan 2021 – Kylington was a bit late to camp and it appears newcomer Connor Mackey has potentially passed him on the depth chart. He was placed on waivers to go on the taxi squad and one would think this could be the opportunity for a team to pick up a cheap offensive option and take that risk. He wasn’t claimed and he moves to Calgary’s taxi squad. If the couch GMs were wondering how valuable Kylington was to other teams, this could have been an indicator. If you’re a fantasy owner, he’s a bit of a long shot at this point. If nobody will give you a chance, there’s nothing much you can do. – Joel Henderson

Feb 2020 – With an injury to Mark Giordano, fantasy owners would have hoped this would be the moment where Flames try out Kylington on the second PP unit and see how it goes. Sadly, the offensive catalyst continues to not get any love on the PP or the PK for that matter. His minutes have slightly improved over the season but he’s still mostly in the range of 12-15 minutes a game. That doesn’t bode well for roto leagues or leagues who want those PPP. He has looked more comfortable at the NHL level as of late. – Joel Henderson

Nov 2019 – Well, Oliver has been sent down. He’s grabbed three goals in three games which included two of them on the PP. They all came in one game and did not register a shot in either of the others. At this point, coaches understand he needs to play a few games. His confidence is already there at the NHL level to jump into the rush and create offensively but there has been comments here and there from the organization about him still needing to improve on the defensive end. This is a player where a buy-low trade now could be terrific. Giordano and Hani
