News: Giordano had two assists Tuesday.
Impact: Giordano has three assists on the young season, but Tuesday marked the first time he earned a plus-rating (plus-2) after he was minus-3 in the first three contests.

News: Giordano collected a pair of helpers in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime win over Buffalo
Impact: The big rearguard had a fine night, skating to a plus-2, adding three shots on goal and even earning himself four PIM for a couple transgressions. Giordano also led the game in ice time at 26:30 -- over six minutes of which came with the man advantage -- so it's not surprising to see Calgary finally get in the win column when the captain puts forth this type of production.

News: Giordano failed to register a point during Friday's game against Edmonton, but he did block a game-high five shots while registering three of his own over 27:18 of ice time.
Impact: Giordano had an assist and saw 23:27 of ice time in the season opener, so he's picked up where he left off last season. The 33-year-old veteran broke out over the three previous years to become a high-end fantasy option capable of tipping the scales across all categories. The 2016-17 campaign will likely yield more of the same.
