    Didn't realize that Ortio just turned 29 recently.

    A bit past the age of being an NHL prospect for skaters but about the time that goalies generally enter their prime.

    Realize he last played in North America in 2015-16 - splitting the year between the Flames and their AHL affiliate Stocton.

    But in looking at his career since, after two seasons in Sweden he played in a career-high 52 games last year in the KHL and then combined with Swiss veteran Lukas Flueler on the Swiss league's top team, Zurich SC.

    Is there any talk of him returning to North America to a club in need of a quality veteran goaltender?
