News: Ortio shut out the Avalanche in Thursday night's preseason game, making 35 saves in the process.
Impact: Ortio's goalie counterpart in the contest was former teammate Reto Berra, so there might have been some extra motivation at play. Still, the former faces the challenge of beating out incumbents Jonas Hiller and Karri Ramo for the top job between the pipes. There is a lot for Flames' brass to consider with the goalie situation ahead of a new campaign, but Ortio chose one of the most ideal times to turn in such a stellar showing.
